Short nails? We’ve all been there. Can be a bit annoying right? ‘But you can always get acrylics.’ Not always. Sometimes one really wishes ‘kaash I had longer nails.’ If you’ve been there, then this one’s for you. We bring you three steps to boost your nail growth.
These tips are simple and you can easily practice them at home.
1. Almond Oil To The Rescue
Almond oil is enriched with antioxidants, Vitamins B2 and E which help coat your nails with a layer, protecting them from any sort of breakage, dryness, or cracking.
How to use:
Apply onto your nails for 30 minutes at least 4 times a week or leave it on for the night.
Easy, simple and so convenient.
2. Orange Juice Does The Trick
‘Wait, what?’ Is that what you’re thinking?
For starters, oranges are essential for your diet, body, and of course, your nails too. Oranges help in the production of collagen which strengthens the nails and boosts their growth and prevents any sort of damage. Plus, it’s winter, and since the malta season is here, make the best use of it!
3. Lemons – The Unspoken Hero Of Many Problems
Lemons are rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants which boost your nail growth and make them stronger and naturally shiny.
How to use:
Rub half a lemon over your nails and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then wash off with lukewarm water for the best results.
These 3 home remedies will leave you with naturally better-looking nails. We’ve tried the lemon one and trust us, it works like pure magic. While we try the other two, we recommend you try one of these remedies and let us know how it goes!
