No one likes to admit it, but nails on fingers and toes can easily become infected. Whether the cause be sweat, an unclean spa, or something uncontrollable such as diabetes nails can become discolored, brittle, an painful if they are infected.
One of my favourite tips for natural nail care is not only simple, but cost efficient. Australian derived, tea tree oil is used to help aide rashes, skin issues, and infections, and is often recommended by doctors to treat nail fungus before something prescribed. You can apply the tea tee oil directly to the nail but overuse of the product can cause irritation. This week’s tip is to simply add 2-5 drops of tea tree oil to some clear top/base coat nail polish to easily cover your finger and toe nails. I recommend Essence brand, its av available online, and at Shoppers Drug Mart, even better? It is under $5! Tea tree oil is available wherever vitamins are, my bottle cost me just $6!
