Many women, wanting to have beautiful and well -groomed nails, are faced with the problem of their brittleness. This comes from the fact that the nail plates lack nutrients for the normal growth and preservation of their structure and integrity. Nail strength can be achieved in two ways. At the same time, it is better to combine them for a greater effect and general health. The first nuance is proper nutrition, enrichment of the body with all the necessary substances: vitamin A, E, acids and other trace elements.
The second method and an important nail care factor is local influences. Local ways to overcome brittleness include masks and baths for nails.
