What makes for sexy hands? One sure fire way to make your mitts look gorgeous is to keep your nails looking health. Brittle, short and brittle nails are not attractive. And unhealthy nails will not grow strong and long. So what can you do to make sure your nails stay healthy? Well, follow our five top tips and you`re off to a good start.
Milk is packed full of calcium which is needed for strong bones, teeth and nails. Try to drink a couple of glasses of milk every day or have cereal for breakfast to up your calcium intake. If you don`t like the taste of milk then you could take a calcium supplement instead. Calcium supplements are available from all good heatlh stores and pharmacies.
Wear rubber gloves to do house work
Fabulous hands with fabulous nails should not be doing the house work, we know this. But unfortunately like often gets in the way in these situations and doing the dishes and the cleaning up is unavoidable. To protect your nanils, be sure to wear a pair of thick rubber gloves when doing any chores around the house.
Keep your nails hydrated
It sounds strange but keeping your nails hydrated is a great way of keeping them strong and helping them to grow. But how do you hydrate you nails? It`s very easy. Simply take a jar of petroleum jelly or soft parrafin and run a small amount over each nail every night.
Take vitamin D
There is very little point taking lots of calcium if you`re not taking any vitamin D. Vitamin D helps your body to absorb calcium so while it is the calcium that helps to make your bones, nails and teeth healthy you need Vitamin D in order for your body to take it in. Get lots of sunshine (but keep your skin protected), eat foods which are rich in vitamin D such as spinach and perhaps look into taking a vitamin D supplement.
Don`t bite them!
Ok, it`s an obvious one but it`s true, biting your nails does not make for a good look! If you have trouble quitting biting your nails you should invest in a nail polish which is designed to deter biters by having a rather unpleasant taste! Ask at your local beauty store.
