DIY Nail Soak for Stronger Nails

Having long strong, fast-growing nails is the ideal for many women. Too often nails break easily and then it seems to take forever to get them back to the length of the others, even when you file down the rest of the nails to help.

One sure cure for this that has been proven to work many times is a fresh orange juice and crushed garlic soak, then soaking in olive oil followed by washing the hands.

Benefits of the Ingredients:

Orange Juice

There are reasons this works so fast to promote nail growth. The Orange juice is filled with antioxidants that help improve the quality of the nails. They make the nails look more attractive while being stronger and growing faster.

It also helps exfoliate the cuticle and assist the nail in looking smoother because of the citric acid it contains. It also helps conceal the smell of the garlic and neutralize it.

Garlic

Garlic is one of the best natural healing agents, but it’s also great for nails. Garlic is high in selenium. When you’re body lacks selenium, you tend to have weaker nails.

Garlic contains many different phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals and has strong antioxidant benefits to promote cell health. It has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties, too.

It’s one of the richest sources of calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and manganese. Manganese is necessary to create the superoxide dismutase, an antioxidant enzyme. It also prevents inflammation and contains vitamin C to fight infection.

Olive Oil

The final step, the olive oil soak, helps soften and moisturize the skin around the nails and nails. It penetrates deeply into the skin and nails to provide nourishing vitamin E while improving blood flow that helps bring nutrients and oxygen to the nails to promote growth as it repairs cells and adds strength.

Olive oil keeps your cuticles soft as it moisturizes the nails, cuticles, and surrounding skin. The extra moisture adds strength and prevents peeling brittle nails that break easily.
