1. Olive oil
Using nourishing oils, such as olive oil, can help keep your nails shiny by nourishing the cuticles from deep within. Olive oil has great moisturising properties, and hence is commonly used for various beauty remedies.
How to apply: Clean your nails thoroughly. Then warm a small bowl of olive oil and deep your fingers for 15 minutes. Wipe clean with a towel and repeat the process daily for best results.
2. Lemon juice
Lemon juice acts as a great cleanser, and is also known to help get rid of discolouration.
How to apply: Mix one teaspoon of baking soda in a small bowl of water, and add one tablespoon of lemon juice into the mix. Soak your nails for about 10 minutes. Then with the help of a brush, gently scrub your nails and wash clean. You can also mix two teaspoons of sea salt in a bowl of lukewarm water, add one teaspoon lemon juice and soak your fingers for 10-15 minutes.
3. Rose water
Rose water not only acts as a mood enhancer but also works wonders to keep the nails in the pink of health. It has antiseptic, antibacterial and antioxidant properties, and acts as a natural moisturiser.
How to use: Use rose water regularly after cleaning your fingers thoroughly. Take care of your nails with these easy remedies and keep them healthy. - NDTV
