Why Lemon for Nails
Your nails are fragile, brittle, a little yellow and grow badly? No doubt, they need to be fortified! To help them, here are some totally natural recipes based on lemon.
The virtues of lemon are no longer to present. This citrus fruit is an effective antiseptic, anti-fungal, anticasse, antijaunissement. And besides, it’s natural! One or two lemon treatments per week will allow you to treat your nails if they are striated, yellow, brittle, if they grow little, if they split or if they are contaminated by a fungus. You will tone and whiten them and avoid the same opportunity to go through the manicure box.

Dip your fingers for ten to fifteen minutes. Lightly massage your cuticles to soften them. This will repel them without difficulty at the end of this bath.
