To treat your dander, take care of your plate!
As true as health comes from food , nail health also depends on our eating habits . An inappropriate lifestyle weakens the body and by extension our nails. So, the main thing to have beautiful and strong nails is to eat a diet rich in :
- Iron : liver, lentils, parsley …
- Vitamin D : cod liver oil, herring …
- Zinc : oyster, rye bread …
- Selenium : fish and seafood
- V itamin B : brewer’s yeast, whole grains, nuts, etc.
Here are some simple steps to take to take care of your manicure
These tips are intended for those who are fans of nail polish , but also to those whose nails are abused by daily tasks .
The first thing to do is to hydrate your hands and nails well on a daily basis. Apply a dab of moisturizer all over and massage them for a few minutes. Pay particular attention to your cuticles. The ideal is to do it before bed to allow the cream to penetrate well and to deeply nourish your skin and your integuments.
File your nails gently and always in the same direction , from left to right or from right to left. The back and forths may damage them. To do this, use a glass file or a cardboard file, which is gentler on your manicure.
Before doing your housework , do not forget to put on gloves to protect your nails from the aggressions of cleaning products. Your hands will also be grateful to you for sparing them a bath of potentially aggressive products.
Last thing, but not the least, let your dander breathe for 1 or 2 days between each application of varnish. Too repeated use weakens the nails, whether due to the varnish itself or to the nail polish remover .
