Tired of breaking your nails when you least expect it? Afraid of getting infections? No worries, we have got you covered both ways. Not only can your nails break if they’re too weak, but they can also be put at risk for yeast or bacterial infections. However, if you take care of your nails on a regular basis, they will be strong and beautiful. Here is what you should do to have healthy and happy nails.

 

Wash regularly

Your nails are no different than any other part of your body, that’s why you should clean them regularly. Make sure to gently scrub your nails when you wash your hands in order to get rid of bad bacteria.

 

Keep your nails dry

Wet nails are prone to bacterial infections. You should always dry your nails after washing them, and it’s best if you wear gloves while washing the dishes and doing chores.

 

Moisturize!

Yes, your nails need to be moisturized with lotion. Since water can dry out natural oils in nails, you need to use lotion onto the surface of each nail.

 

Take a break from polish

For better nail care, let your nails breathe once in a while by keeping them polish-free for a week or so.

 

Apply a nail hardener

Nail hardener can immediately make your nails stronger; no more nail splits! Plus, they will grow faster and healthier.

 

Vitamin C is a must

Grandma’s tip: soak your nails in lemon juice for 10 minutes. This trick will make them stronger, naturally bleached and stain-free.
