Did you bite your nails as a child? Or have you simply got weak nails? Then I have a few tips for you on how to strengthen your nails.
I used to bite my nails quite a lot. This has left me with weak and frail nails that easily crack and flake. There are 3 things I do to strengthen my nails, and I want to share these with you.
My first tip for you is to use a hand cream with nail strengthening properties. At the moment I use Hand & Nail Cream by Superdrug, as shown in the picture below. They are not too pricey, and they come in 3 sizes: 150ml, 75 ml, and 30ml, so can have one on your bedside table, on your desk, and one in your handbag!
Many of us are already addicted to hand cream, so why not use one that also strengthens your nails? It’s a win-win situation!
Next up is nail strengthener in the form of nail polish. There are many of these on the market to choose from, but I use Sally Hansen’s Advanced Hard as Nails Strengthener. It works as any other nail polish, you simply apply 2-3 layers and leave it to do it’s magic. And let me tell you: It works!
Last, but in no way least, is something you should avoid doing: Excessively filing your nails.
I know it can be tempting to whip out your nail file and use it to shorten your nails instead of a nail clipper, but this is bad for your nails! Excessive filing increases the chance of your nails flaking, which then leads to cracking. So remember to use your nail clipper!
I hope these tips have been useful to you, and I’ll see you for my next post! 😀
