Today I’d like to share the nail soak recipe that I whip up at home. It makes me feel like I get a deep clean, some moisturizing, and a nice fresh canvas for my next manicure. I usually soak my hands once in a while and especially if I’ve worn dark polish and my cuticles are a bit stained. I use the following treatment after removing all my polish. It’s sorta relaxing and only requires a few ingredients that we already have in our kitchen…
Easy DIY nail soak
♥ drip a few drops of dish soap in a small bowl
♥ add about a teaspoon of honey
♥ add about a teaspoon of olive oil and stir it
♥ then add some warm water and stir again
You can soak your nails in this for a few minutes… and then softly scrub them (and underneath) with a nail brush. Then I like to soak them again to help lift off any dead skin cells that were loosened by scrubbing. Dry your hands with a soft towel and moisturize and you’ll feel like you pampered yourself a bit!
Interested in more DIY soaks? This blog called Nail Files has a list of easy-to-make varieties which target specific nail problems. I really want to try the milk or egg soaks because they claim to replenish the protein in your nails! I love whipping up these kind of concoctions….besides, natural remedies always work best 🙂
