For our brittle nail squad in the back, hear us loud and clear! Your nails can break due to two reasons – too much moisture and too little moisture. Too much moisture makes your nails soft while too little moisture makes it dry and brittle. This could be because of the repeated drying and wetting of nails.

Here’s when the goodness of natural ingredients come into the picture. While eating well is very important to have strong nails, there are a few home remedies that you can even use topically to get gorgeous fingertips.

Lemon

Rich in vitamin C, lemon brightens the nails and removes any stains to make it look good. The vitamin C also promotes nail growth and strengthens it. You could cut a lemon in half and use it directly to rub it on your nails or grab a cotton ball full of lemon juice and rub on your nails for about 15 minutes. You can also leave it overnight for maximum benefit.

Coconut oil

Is there anything coconut oil cannot do. It not only hydrates the nail bed, but it also softens the cuticles and strengthens the nails. It also has anti-fungal properties which is why it’s a perfect treatment to keep nail infections at bay. We suggest you use it in your toenails at least once a week! For an overnight treatment, warm up some coconut oil and apply on your nail and around the nail bed. Leave it on overnight and see the magic! If you have soft nails you can limit the use of this nail mask for once a week.
