The Best Nail Treatments Are Made At Home

Beautiful nails are every woman's delight. But they don't have to be something you only dream of having! With a little time and patience, and help from any of these nail treatments I have listed here, you can have gorgeous nails that are strong and healthy.

Before you start:
Thoroughly cleanse your hands, using a nail brush for nails, before using any of these treatments.

After you're finished:
If you're applying the treatment at bedtime, let it absorb in overnight. Otherwise, rinse your hands under warm water to remove any of the oils and other ingredients in these treatments from your hands. Pat dry with a soft, clean towel. Apply a good hand lotion, working it well into your cuticles and your nails.

Fill a glass bowl half with pineapple juice and half with orange juice, and soak your hands, with the nails completely submerged, for at least twenty minutes, then rinse. Orange juice contains vitamin C and Folic Acid which stimulate healthy nail growth. Pineapple juice contains the enzyme Bromelain which helps the vitamins absorb deeper into the hands and nail beds. Use this soak one to three times per week.
