Your nails speak of your style, they are like jewels which you can design with nail art and flaunt them off by wearing beautiful nail paints. Nails are made up of a protein called keratin.
You may have noticed that your toe nails grow faster than your hand nails. This happens due several factors like lack of nutrients in the body, hormonal changes, stress or due to use of certain medications. However you can enhance the growth of your nails by adopting some natural remedies at home:
Tomatoes are rich source of a vitamin called biotin, which aids the growth of nails and makes them strong and shiny. To use tomatoes for your nails, juice out 1 tomato in a bowl, add a few drops of olive oil to the juice and dip your nails in this solution for 10 minutes. Wash the nails and pat dry, apply nail cream or Vaseline. Follow this quick remedy to get desired results.
Garlic is known for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and it thus protects nails from infections. Although garlic does not promote nail growth, it helps to maintain nails healthy and strong. Cut a garlic clove in two halves and rub the cloves all over your finger nails. Let the garlic juice get absorbed before washing hands. Alternatively make paste of garlic and apply the paste on the nails and leave it for 5 minutes. Follow this remedy once a week to get smooth nails.
Vitamin E oil is a natural moisturiser and it stimulates nail growth. Vitamin oil also helps to maintain the health of your cuticles and cures the dry and cracked cuticles. To use vitamin oil on your nails, take 3-4 vitamin E capsules and prick them to squeeze out the oil. Take a small brush and dip in the vitamin E oil and apply the oil on your nails. Alternatively you can use this oil by mixing it with other essential oil. Apply the oil on the fingernails and rub in gently. This will increase the blood circulation in the nails. Wear manicure gloves and leave it overnight.
