DIY nail whitening therapy
Alot of people struggle with coloured nails, and go to great lengths to fix them. Here are three simple elements to help clear yellow-like nails, and how to use them.
Hydrogen peroxide has whitening properties that work wonders on yellow stained nails. Hydrogen peroxide can dehydrate your nails, so apply a moisturising lotion after using this remedy.
Pour three to four tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide into one-half cup of water and mix them well. Soak your nails in the solution for two minutes. Using a soft toothbrush, gently scrub your nails. Then rinse them with water. Do this once a week for several months. Baking soda
The bleaching and exfoliating properties of baking soda can help remove stains from the nails. Mix two and one-half tablespoons of baking soda and one tablespoon of three per cent hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Use cotton swabs to apply the mixture on the stained nails. Leave it on for three to four minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat this process every six to eight weeks.
Toothpaste that helps to make your teeth whiter can also be used to remove yellow stains from nails.
Apply a small coat of whitening toothpaste on your nails. Leave it on for five to 10 minutes. Using a nail brush, scrub your nails gently. Wash the toothpaste off with cotton balls soaked in lukewarm water. Repeat the process two or three times per week for a month.
