Spring in this Season to Healthier and Stronger Nails By: Monica Margerum

After enduring the cooler months of the year and keeping busy with life’s activities, you can easily neglect your nails and they can become very dry and brittle. Regular manicures always help throughout the year, however many of you may not have the time to go to the salon to keep your nails up periodically. Creating a simple routine to prevent damaged nails can help your nails become healthier, stronger and longer. Here are a few tips, to keep your nails looking neat and healthy:  Slathering on a cream moisturizer and apply white cotton gloves or socks on your hands and leave it on overnight. It is beneficial to help keep your hands moisturized especially when they are always in water and/or excessively dry.  Keeping your nails filed, trimmed, and buffed creates a cleaner look for your nails.  A fresh coat of nail polish including a basecoat and top coat always creates a more healthy and polished look for your nails.  Giving yourself a vitamin supplement and increasing your fruits, veggies, protein, and daily exercise for circulation. This can enhance your nails ability to become stronger and healthier on a daily basis.  Creating a simple hand scrub will not only help you save money but you will have softer skin/cuticles by sloughing off dead skin on your hands. Simple Hand Scrub: 5 teaspoons of Brown Sugar 2 teaspoons of honey 3 teaspoons of olive oil 1-2 drops of essential oil (optional)
