We all love the look of our nails. But some changes can make our nails healthy and stronger. Even growing faster too.


Avoid using nail polish containing formaldehyde, toluene and sulfonamide. It is not healthy for your nails. Use good nail polish brands. Also can use nutrient filled polish.

Avoid biting or scratching your nails. It will weaken them.
Use olive oil as a moisturiser for your nails. Take just a few drops on your palm. Then rub it on your nails. Nails that are dull and dry break easily. 

Trim your nails on a regular basis. That way you get rid of any weak nail parts. Apply petroleum jelly before you go to bed.   

Washing dishes weakens your nails. Detergents are harsh for your nails and also your hands. Protect your nails and hands by using gloves.

Your nails are  made out of protein. So it s good to make sure you get enough proteins. Foods like eggs, meat and beans that are rich in proteins.

Use garlic paste or if you don't have paste can cut a garlic in half and rub it on your nails twice weekly. Your nails will absorb the juices. Also garlic helps your nails to grow faster.

So with a few changes nails can look healthy strong and grow fast.
So as you see just a few changes can have wonderful result for your nails.

Why is it good to exfoliate?

What is the benefits of exfoliating? 
When you exfoliate you remove dead skin cells so that the newer cells are revealed. 
The result? 
Your skin looks and feels healthier.
As well as smoother and younger.


 How often should we exfoliate? 
It all depends on your skin type. It is advised the face twice a week. But for sensitive skin twice a week can be too much. Casing skin irritation. For others in warmer climates or those who have a naturally oily skin. Twice a week may not be enough. You may have to exfoliate more. 

For your body it is advised three times every week. It should be enough. But again depending on your skin type. For sensitive skin. It may too much. 

Remember exfoliating is to remove dead skin cells. It should not be that you rub very hard or even too regularly. You don't want to look red and your skin sore. If you over exfoliate you will damage your skin in the process doing more bad than good to your skin. 

If exfolation is too harsh you can combine a body wash and exfoliating scrub together. Never ever overdo it. A few times every week is enough. Too much will irritate your skin.

I hope this article cleared it up.

Age defying habits that is effective

Ageing. Many spend hours on trying to defy ageing. Many resort to cosmetic surgery. Beauty creams that claim to keep skin firm and young. Many of them are really good products. But always remember that your life style does affect how you will age. So with that in mind I am sharing a few tips that will help you look young and feel young too.



Watch your diet.
Now is the time to start eating right. No matter what age group you are. Food that is high in calories and is very rich in preservatives isn't really good for your body. Leave the junk food and fatty foods. Rather enjoy healthy and nutritious leafy green vegetables. Enjoy more fruit. Feel free to do research on what a healthy diet is. Or get professional help.

Proper sleep
When your body doesn't get enough sleep, your immune system gets weak. Your organs gets affected. Your stress levels rise and you become sluggish.  Make sure that you get the right amount of sleep and if possible try going to sleep at a certain time. Every night the same time. That way you will look radiant and younger.

Using sunscreen
Avoid too much sun exposure. Wrinkles may be the result of too much sunlight. Spend less time outdoors in the direct sunlight. Use sunglasses and always use sunscreen. (But always remember that about 30 minutes of sunlight is good for the skin. Because our bodies need Vitamin D. Lack of Vitamin D may cause tiredness and other serious health issues. But always stay out of sunlight when the sun is at its warmest)

Keeping your mind active
Never forget about your mental health. It is just as important as your physical appearance. Read books. Learn new hobbies. Don't stop learning. Remember to have close relationships with family and friends. It will help you maintain balance in your life.

After 6 months you will see a scum that is grayish on the surface of the liquid. Don't be worried about that. It is normal for it to be that way. As it is naturally fermented. 
Now strain the liquid by using a coffee filter into a bowl that is larger. 
Leave for another four to six weeks with the covered cheesecloth.

After this time your apple cider vinegar is ready to be used. Doesn't seem to be too difficult, just need lots of time. Do note that the first batch of vinegar has the mother of earth that is needed in many natural solutions for health issues. That is the starter for the next process of your vinegar
