7 Foods For Strong, Glossy Nails!

By  | 

Nail care often becomes the most overlooked aspect of your beauty regime. Filling those brows and slicking on that latest tube of lipstick becomes far more important. While I get that, I can’t stress the importance of nail care enough. No, I’m not talking about fixing chipped nail polish here. I’m talking about turning weak and brittle nails into stronger, shinier ones!

Interested yet? Of course you are! I mean, who likes to be fiddling away with something only to realize that you’ve broken your poor old nail in the process? Weak and dull-looking nails are the absolute worst, especially if the nature of your job involves a lot of hands-on work. Beauty tools for your nails are all well and good. But you can also help your nails look better by eating the right kind of food.

Yes, again! Eating the right kind of food can really do wonders for you, whether it is your hair, your skin, or your cuticles! Scroll on to find out what these superfoods are.

1. Eggs

Eggs are rich in biotin and proteins. Biotin, especially, is considered to be great for the nails. These guys can help build your nail strength from within. It’ll help turn your nails from weaklings into glossy, strong beauties. So go ahead and indulge in some eggs for breakfast.

2. Walnuts

Walnuts are tasty AND healthy. Besides, they make for a convenient evening snack while you are at work. Walnuts contain omega acids which help restore the shine to lifeless nails. It’s time to start taking your mom seriously when she tells you to eat those dry fruits!

3. Bananas

These bright and ripe wonders of nature are helpful in so many ways. Like eggs, bananas contain biotin. This can strengthen weak nails super effectively. If you’re tired of the tips of your nails bending each time they come into contact with a hard surface, start eating those bananas.

4. Oats

Do you blanch at the mere thought of oats? Well, try not to, because they can really aid in getting those perfect nails. Oats contain Vitamins A and B, both of which help them become stronger and less brittle. You can always start eating a bowl of oats for breakfast every other day! If you’re still making faces, here’s how you can add some taste to a bowl of oats.

5. Carrots

Carrots are not only good for the eyes, they’re good for your cuticles too. Raw carrots are rich in Vitamin A, which have a direct and positive effect on your nails.  Vitamin A helps restore life to dull nails. What more could you ask for, really?

6. Tomatoes

Tomatoes aren’t easily liked by many. But they can be so good for you! Several foods are rich in iron and Vitamin C. A deficiency of either can lead to poor and brittle nails. Tomatoes contain Vitamin C. You could pair these with some spinach (for the iron, of course) and you’ll definitely have prettier nails in no time! Besides, we’ve also told you how you can cook up a storm with tomatoes, so come on!

7. Flaxseeds

These tiny little seeds are packed with goodness. They contain fibre, proteins, and omega 3 fatty acids. You can grind these seeds into a fine powder. Add a spoonful to your daily cereal or sprinkle some over a bowl of salad. Flaxseeds can make your nails stronger and shinier, quicker.
