This One Kitchen Staple Is The Trick To Growing Stronger, Longer Nails
If you’ve been getting one too many shellacs, or have a habit of chewing on some nails, it might be time to give your talons some TLC.
While we’ve heard about the technique of oil pulling for whiter teeth and stronger gums, now olive oil is being trumped as the answer to your brittle nails.
According to Marie Claire, this quick DIY fix will see your nails retain moisture and strengthen from within.
The simple steps include warming a few tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl in the microwave and allowing it to cool slightly.
Next, simply dip your nails in the warm olive oil for around 15 minutes. The oil will penetrate your nail and skin to moisturise and strengthen from within.
Beauty experts recommend you use any oil – olive, argan or coconut oil – for your nail care treatment.
Don’t have time in the evening?
Rub oil onto your nails and wear gloves overnight to lock in the moisturising effect.
