How to get rid of brittle nails?
Here is a recipe of yesteryear whose efficiency never ceases to surprise us, based on a condiment that we all have in our kitchen and which is also very good for health. The star of the day is garlic!
The benefits of garlic
Garlic is first and foremost a natural antibiotic, it is considered a superfood because of all the nutrients it contains. It is a very powerful antioxidant that actively fights against diseases related to aging. It is also a very effective anti-cancer. In fact, a meta-analysis of 18 studies published between the 1960s and 90s showed that this condiment reduced the risk of stomach cancer by 50% and the risk of colorectal cancer by 30%. It protects the body from carcinogens, slows the growth of cancer cells, fights cardiovascular diseases and infections. This condiment is very rich in nutrients: it contains magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, copper, iron, manganese, vitamin C and B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, B12 in quantity and finally selenium. All these components are essential for strong, healthy and hard nails.
Selenium, in particular, is a trace element essential to the body. It prevents cancer, acts as an antioxidant through the production of glutathione (an enzyme that prevents the oxidation of cells) and strengthens the immune system. It is a deficiency of selenium that makes the nails become brittle and soft.
The trick to make your nails stronger
You will need a clove of garlic, a clear natural varnish (available for sale online or in specialized stores), a cuticle pusher, a cutting board, and a knife.
Chop your clove of garlic on the chopping board, make pieces thin enough to introduce them easily into the bottle of varnish. Insert them in and stir. Leave it on for a week. The varnish will be impregnated with garlic, you can finally use it as usual. Push back your cuticles with a pusher. You must apply the polish two to three times a week for a good result.
And if you’re not scared of feeling strong, you can also rub a clove of garlic cracked in half directly on your nails, let act as long as possible then rinse.
These techniques will give strength to your nails, they will become less brittle and you can grow them at your leisure.
