Are Your Nails Always Peeling?

Few things are more frustrating than giving your nails lots of TLC, only to have them peel like blistered skin, yet up to one in four women regularly battle this annoying nail blight.

Rx: Horsetail tea

This tea is loaded with silica, a building block of nail tissue that helps nails grow in stronger, locking in moisture so nails are less likely to peel and flake. According to University of Cincinnati researchers, just pumping up your silica intake can help you grow noticeably stronger, sturdier nails in as little as three months -- just two cups of horsetail tea daily can do the trick. Popular brands include Alvita and Celebration Herbals. If you find this brew a little bitter, just sweeten with a pinch of sugar or honey.

Bonus: According to the FDA, horsetail tea is a proven diuretic, so it’s a great option if you often battle bloating or fluid retention.
