Nail care is an important part of ensuring that your nails feel and look healthy. Nail beauty courses will teach you all about the different techniques involved in nail care. There are also natural ways to keep your nails healthy, such as drinking enough water and walking on the beach. Water keeps your body and nails hydrated, and it flushes the toxins out. Walking on the beach is a natural way to exfoliate your feet and will make your feet feel softer. An important fact to remember is that nail care does not stop at your nails – it extends to your hands and feet.

Here are a few tips for nail care:

  • Do not bite your nails.

  • Moisturise your cuticles by applying petroleum jelly.

  • Moisturise your hands daily.

  • If your nails are prone to breaking, have a look at you protein intake – protein can help to make nails stronger.

  • Vitamin B is very good for nails – take a Vitamin B supplement or eat Vitamin B-rich foods such as salmon or flaxseed.
