Easy home remedy to strengthen dry brittle nails
- 1/4 Cup of freshly squeezed orange juice
- A clove of chopped garlic
- Some tablespoons of olive oil (5-6)
In a container, mix the orange juice with garlic and soften your nails for 15 minutes. Then rinse your hands with water and soften them in another container, where you put the olive oil. Like the first time, keep your nails in the olive oil for about 15 minutes.
It is advisable to follow this procedure 2-3 times a week. Results will be seen after only 2 weeks – you will notice that your nails grow faster, do not exfoliate and do not break, being stronger.
Why does it work? Well, the orange juice has many antioxidants and vitamins, which favors the growth of nails. Being acidic, it also helps to soften the cuticle. On the other hand, garlic has a high selenium content, and if your body has a selenium deficiency, then your nails are weak and fragile. In addition, garlic has antibacterial and fungal properties that help to increase nail.
Last but not least, as we already know, olive oil is a moisturizer, being able to penetrate deep into the skin. For this reason, it gives the nail resistance, preventing their breakage.
