Keep your nails healthy by focussing on cleanliness. Try olive oil, milk cream and acetone-free nail polish removers for clean and healthy nails.

Preethi S, training head, Naturals Salon Training Academy, doles out tips for perfect nails:

• Take a bowl of olive oil and soak your nails in it. Leave them in it for 10 minutes then wipe off excess oil with cotton wool.

• After washing hands, apply a hand cream to prevent them from drying up. Dry nails have more chances of breaking.

• To further avoid dryness, use nail polish removers that are acetone-free.

• Gently massage your nails after applying milk cream.

• Use the finishing side of a nail buffer to help in blood circulation in the nail bed.
