How to Have Strong Nails

How to Have Strong Nails


“Do your nails look dull and unhealthy? Are they prone to breaking? You are not alone. This is a common problem.”

“Nails are composed of laminated layers of a protein called keratin. Healthy nails are smooth, without pits or grooves. In addition, healthy nails are uniform in color and consistency and free of spots or discoloration.”


“On the other hand, weak nails break easily and do not grow easily. Weak nails may also have signs of yellowing and discoloration.”


“Weak and unhealthy nails are often due to negligence and improper care. They get weak when they dry out and become brittle. Long-term exposure to water or chemicals, such as detergents and nail polish, are the main reasons behind weak nails.”


“A healthy lifestyle, dietary changes, a proper nail care regimen and some simple home remedies can help fix the problem and make your nails strong and healthy.”

*These are the Best Ingredients for Strong, Healthy Nails:

Olive oil is an excellent remedy for weak nails. The oil helps moisturize the nails. It also helps repair damage and softens nails and cuticles, which in turn leads to strong and healthy nails.”



Green tea can also make your nails strong and healthy. The antioxidants in green tea help prevent brittle nails as well as strengthen them. At the same time, green tea helps get rid of yellow discoloring.”




Tea tree oil is another versatile ingredient that can repair and strengthen damaged nails. Its antiseptic property helps prevent and treat fungal infections that are often the cause of weak and brittle nails. It can also help get rid of discolored or yellow nails.”





Flaxseeds can also make your nails stronger. The micronutrients in flaxseeds, such as B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, lecithin, zinc and protein, are necessary for nail health. In addition, they have omega-3 fatty acids required for healthy nails.”

Bipolar Disorder: Helping Someone During a Manic Episode

How to Help
“You may feel frustrated around a person with bipolar disorder who is having a manic episode. The high energy level can be tiring or even frightening. The person may also actually enjoy the mania and may not take medicines, which can prolong the episode. Also, the person may say and do unusual or hurtful things. You can help during a manic episode by doing the following:

Spend time with the person, depending on his or her level of energy and how well you can keep up. People who are manic often feel isolated from other people. Spending even short periods of time with them helps them feel less isolated. If the person has a lot of energy, walk together, which allows the person to keep on the move but share your company.

Answer questions honestly. But do not argue or debate with a person during a manic episode. Avoid intense conversation.

Don’t take any comments personally. During periods of high energy, a person often says and does things that he or she would not usually say or do, including focusing on negative aspects of others. If needed, stay away from the person and avoid arguments.

Avoid subjecting the person to a lot of activity and stimulation. It is best to keep surroundings as quiet as possible.

Allow the person to sleep whenever possible. During periods of high energy, sleeping is difficult and short naps may be taken throughout the day. Sometimes the person feels rested after only 2 to 3 hours of sleep.”

1.Wear All One Color

kari-all black outfit

This may sound odd, but it works wonders. Dressing head-to-toe in one solid color creates the illusion of length. The proportions are not broken up, so it hides your natural waist. This makes you look longer! The color black is great for this idea. If I am feeling edgy, I will wear black jeans, a great pair of boots and a leather jacket! Not only is black slimming, it also is an easy way to look taller!

2.High-Waisted Everything!

I say everything, because I am such a fan of high-waisted bottoms. I know, I know. Some people may have horrible flashbacks to…

To The People Who Don’t Know How To Say No

Thought Catalog

I’ve been a believer of the “Yes Man” philosophy for a long time now. In short, a Yes Man is someone who never turns down an opportunity, often to win the favor of someone else. (It was exacerbated in a film that stars Jim Carrey, where he challenges himself to say yes to everything for an entire year. But of course, I have my own version inside my head. Check it out if you haven’t yet!) I’ve learned to say yes to almost every opportunity that has ever come my way, and at the same time, I’ve said yes to almost every favor that’s been asked of me. That attitude has brought me to different places, has introduced me to so many people, and has given me so much to experience. I’m that person. I’m the real-life, non-literal, yes man.

That same attitude, however, has turned me into a person…
