All you need to do is to mix together 1 tbsp of yogurt and ½ tsp of honey and apply it on the affected area. Wash it off after 10-15 minutes. Since yogurt contains lactic acid it helps in exfoliating the skin and evening the skin tone by removing the dead skin cells.

Add 2-3 tbsp of olive oil in a bowl. Soak your nails in this for 10-15 minutes. Do this every day to make your nails strong and stop brittle nails.
6. Dry Skin
