Toothpaste not only whitens nails but also strengthens them

The Japanese are known for their meticulous attitude to their appearance and creative approach to grooming. That's why they have several effective life hacks even for such a case as yellowing nails.

According to Sante Plus, nails can turn yellow due to the constant use of colored coatings, lack of calcium or vitamins, smoking, household chemicals, and many other reasons. Toothpaste will help to correct this cosmetic defect.

How to whiten nails with toothpaste

To take advantage of the benefits of toothpaste on your nails, apply a thin layer on each nail and leave it on for 2-5 minutes as a kind of mask. After that, the nail plates should be treated with a soft brush, rinsed with warm water, and moisturized with natural vegetable oil (coconut, almond, castor, etc.) or special cosmetic oil. An additional benefit of this method is that due to its calcium content, toothpaste makes nails stronger.

How baking soda can help

Baking soda works well with mechanical pollutants, such as nail polish residue or nicotine smoke stains. Take a tablespoon of baking soda and mix it with a little water to make a thin paste. Apply this product to your nails with a soft brush and gently rub it into the nail plate without pressing. Afterwards, wash your hands with warm water and apply a moisturizer.

Whitening nails with lemon

This citrus fruit will help clean your nails after an activity, such as cooking with spices or working with soil. To do this, just peel the lemon and rub your nails on the inside. You can also apply a few drops of lemon juice to the nail plate. However, this mask should not be kept on for more than two minutes due to its high acidity. After such care, your hands will definitely need to be restored and moisturized.

Hydrogen peroxide bath

A quick way to restore frictionless whiteness to your nails is a hydrogen peroxide bath. First, pour hot water into a bowl and keep your hands in it for 10 minutes. After that, dip your nails into another bowl of pharmacy hydrogen peroxide. 5 minutes will be enough to achieve an excellent result. Finally, apply a moisturizer.
