What you'll need:
- half a lemon
- some olive oil or coconut oil
How to proceed:
1. Squeeze the lemon and put the juice in a small bowl. Fill another bowl with some olive or coconut oil.
2. Put one hand in the bowl with lemon juice for about 5 minutes. Wash your hand and go over to the bowl with the oil for another 5 minutes. Repeat with your other hand (or use bowls that are large enough for both hands).
3. Don't wash off the olive oil but just remove excess oil with some kitchen paper and massage in what's left.
The lemon juice is a natural nail brightener and you can even keep the leftover to clean your nails before applying nail polish. The oil is great for brittle nails and can also be applied at night before going to bed.
