If you have weak or damaged nails then treat them to warm olive oil baths to accelerate nail growth, improve nail health and make them glow. Spare a few minutes to dip them in warm olive oil daily for two weeks for strong nails.
Introduce gloves into your lives and use them whenever you can. Gloves are both chic and classy and they will protect your hands from things like dust, sunlight and bacteria.
