Making nails look beautiful by applying nail polish as well as using nail polish remover regularly, can begin to negatively effect your hands causing thin, brittle nails and damaged cuticles. Leading a busy life can often mean we neglect the minor things, such as the condition of our nails. The condition of our nails speaks volumes about us and though, nice nails may be the last thing we notice, it is often the first thing others notice. How often have you seen ghastly nails on display in open toe shoes? However, looking after your nails can be easily done in 15 minutes, without having to use nail polish or false nails. This trouble-free solution is sunflower oil.

Sunflower oil has many purposes, for instance: maintaining health, skin protection and it also plays a part as an ingredient in many cosmetic products such as ’La Femme, Complete Manicure’. The oil is made from sunflower seeds and further ingredients such as Stearic acid. As it initially comes from a natural resource, sunflower oil is high in vitamin E and has soothing properties. Vitamin E is clinically proven to be a protective and strengthening element. All of this formed the basis of my experiment to attempt to use sunflower oil as a natural nail hardener.

As I currently work in a very hands on job, it is necessary for me to have strong nails. So here is how to do it. When it is convenient, retrieve an empty bowl and pour in some sunflower oil, just enough to cover your nail and cuticles. Add water if you wish but this is not necessary. Place your hands into the bowl allowing your nails and cuticles to soak up the oil for approximately 15 minutes, or longer if you desire. Do this regularly each day or every few days and your nails and cuticles will begin to look fresh, clean and strong. It is as simple as that. No more need for those regular trips to the nail salon, no more need to polish and re-polish your nails all of the time, no more unexpected nail breaks and, most importantly, no more excuses for brittle and nasty looking nails. It the simplest and easiest form of pampering for women on the go!
