Aloe Vera mask for nails: what to do for perfect nails?
During warmer seasons we wear sandals, the tan turns our skin golden and nail varnish becomes almost a must: but, before adding colour, we need to think about the health of our nails, for example with this Aloe Vera Mask.
Why are your nails brittle?
They flake, they break, they have spots on the surface: there are many problems that can affect nails, due to more or less serious disorders.
For example, a deficiency of vitamin A and calcium makes the nails less elastic, just as a deficiency of protein and iron can cause spots and white streaks on the surface; even liver problems or skin diseases can lead to nail disorders.
So the causes could be:
- A poor diet, with related nutritional deficiencies;
- Hormonal dysfunctions, which can impair normal keratin production;
- Allergies, which can also affect the natural resistance of the nails.
But even certain behaviours and small habits can affect their health:
- Onychophagia, which is the tendency to eat and gnaw nails during periods of high stress;
- careless manicures or pedicures;
- use of poor footwear;
- invasive or low-quality nail polishes and treatments.
How can Aloe Vera help you have beautiful nails?
Aloe is rich in vitamin A, Vitamin B12 and Zinc, so it can fill important gaps. Above all, it has a defensive and strengthening effect, as it can stimulate the immune system.
Drinking Aloe Juice every morning can also have a beneficial effect on the nails. As a natural supplement, it has benefits for the entire body.
