There’s a surprising way to strengthen brittle nails in time for a festive New Year’s manicure: Eat an omelet for breakfast! Our nails are 98% protein, which means a deficiency in the nutrient can weaken them. But eating one or two eggs daily supplies protein, plus the amino acid cysteine, which binds the strains of keratin (the main protein in nails) together. For a topical fix, mix 1 egg yolk with 1TBS. of jojoba oil, then massage into nail beds. Rinse after 10 minutes. Doing this three times weekly fortifies nails in 14 days.
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
