Let’s look at some home remedies to have healthy nails

Massaging with warm olive oil or baby oil nourishes the nails and provides them with required nutrients. Olive oil is a natural and proven home remedy for providing shine to the nails.

Follow a good diet for nails. Food items abundant in iron and calcium should be included in daily diet. These could include trim red meats, fish, soy products, beans, whole grain products, green leafy vegetables, and beetroots. Also add nuts, milk products, parsley, and poultry items to your diet.

Vitamin E supplement is remarkably useful in recovery of dull face, damaged hair and brittle nails.

Trim your nails when they get too long.  If you don’t file or cut them when required they can tear or can lead to bigger problem of ingrown nails. For right nail care, trim your toenails in a straight line instead of curved shape.

Scrub. Use scrubber on your nails at least once in a week, to remove dead cells.
