Autumn Nails

Usually autumn can be a hard time for nails. After a hot summer, your nails can become brittle and break.
This is because the vitamin rich summer is far behind us, the sunny summer gave us enough vitamin D but hot temperatures have dried out your nails and they’ve become fragile.

DON’T PANIC!

There are things you can do to help strengthen your nails. All year round try to eat a good diet. Some of the vitamins and minerals which can benefit your nails include:

🍅Vitamin A, found in foods such as liver, butter, carrot, tomatoes and fresh greens.
🥚Vitamin B helps to digest proteins and stimulates nails growth. You can find it in following foods: egg yolk, ale yeast and germinated wheat grains.
🥛Calcium is one of the major nail building elements, so don’t avoid dairy.
Silicium from vegetables also helps our nails to look healthy.
🥒Sulphur is essential for forming nail plate therefore don’t miss cabbages, onions and cucumbers.

Admittedly eating the right nutrition is more use as a preventative measure, however for more immediate results the Beauty and cosmetic industry has a lot to offer in terms of nail care and protection.

CND SolarOil is a good place to start; apply at least twice a day, even if you’re not wearing any polish or Shellac, from £3.95.

On a daily basis use non-oily hand creams, especially ones with Aloe Vera.

One more essential thing to do for your nails is to get a manicure, even if you just enjoy a pampering session and don’t have any nail polish!

I offer a range of nail and hand spa treatments which are lovely treat for both sexes from £15. If you decide to add a nail coating of either polish or Shellac you’ll probably be interested to know that it can actually protect your nails by locking in oils and moisture.
