Top tips for beautiful nails
As we go about our daily activities, our nails are often placed in the firing line. They get bent back, snagged on clothes, and scratched on surfaces, so it is important that from time to time we give nails some TLC.
Having a tried and tested routine that works for you is always best and there are some great products out there to ensure your nails remain healthy.
Give nails a boost
The first step to having long and strong nails is to give them a helping hand with a boosting and rejuvenating tonic.
Try a skin, hair and nail kit to sort out the rest of your body while you're at it, or try the Skin Hair & Nails Horsetail & Burdock Herbal Beauty Drink.
With a celebrity following, including Salma Hayek, this tonic contains essential nutrients, such as Trikatu, which helps circulation. Its Silica, Red Clover and Burdock root content will also strengthen nails and purify the body.
What's great about this drink is that you can have it while on the go. Simply put the tonic in with your water and ensure you consume 15ml daily to feel the effects.
However, remember that Red Clover is a phyto-oestrogen and cannot be used by people with oestrogen dependent cancers.
Keep them trim
Once your nails start to grow it is important that you keep them trimmed and filed, so they take on a nice shape. Don't forget to have a good pair of nail clippers and file to help you sculpt them.
To get a rounded tip, be sure to go with the grain of your nail when you're filing them. However, a word of caution, don't cut nails too far as this can expose and damage the nail bed.
Don't neglect the finishing touches
A nice lick of varnish will finish off your nails and showcase them at their best. However, if you prefer the natural look, leave them bare but be sure to have a nail and cuticle buffer on hand to keep them shiny and healthy.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
