Do you have to apply a coat of nail polish at all the times to hide your yellow nails? If your answer is yes, don’t worry, you are not alone. Many girls suffer from the yellowness of their nails which can happen because of the excessive use of nail polish without giving your nails a break or for some other reasons. So you need to prevent stained nails from happening by applying a base coat on your nails before using the nail polish. But if you nails are already stained you don’t have to polish them at all the times anymore, you can whiten them naturally with few ingredients. Here are 4 amazing home remedies you can try to naturally whiten your nails.
1. Lemon Juice and Baking Soda: A super easy homemade method to whiten your nails is to use this amazing remedy of lemon juice and baking soda. Squeeze half of a lemon (or more) into a plastic bowl, and then add the baking soda and mix the two ingredients until you get a paste that can stick to your nails. Then use an old toothbrush to scrub your nails with it. Rinse your hands with warm water, then make sure to apply hand/nail cream.
2. Whitening Toothpaste: Another effective yet easy way to whiten your nails is to apply toothpaste on your nails. All you need to do is to gently rub your nails with a soft toothpaste for two minutes. If your nails are still stained, you can repeat this process. The white colored pasty toothpaste works best as opposed to the blue or green gel-like toothpaste. And you can make this remedy more effective by adding baking soda to the whitening toothpaste.
3. 3% Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda: Mix 2 ½ teaspoon of baking soda with 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide until you’ve got a nice paste. Cover your nails with it, rub your nails gently with a toothbrush and then allow the mixture to sit on them for about 3 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.
4. White Vinegar: You can also whiten your nails using white vinegar. Add one tablespoon of white vinegar to a small cup of water and leave your nails soaked in it for 5 minutes. Don’t forget to apply hand and nail cream to keep them moisturized.
