Raise your hand if you want healthier nails!
If you dream of having nails that are strong and healthy but can’t seem to make your nails grow or strengthen, there are a few simple ways to grow stronger healthier nails without needing to purchase expensive products or wear gloves each day.
Here’s our top tips for healthy nails:
Stop biting your nails – yep, you guessed it, biting your nails is doing you no good and can cause stress fractures on the corners of your nails which can end up causing breaks. While it could be a habit, it can cause severe ridges on the top of your nails
Be careful using too much water – if you use water too much on your nails they will become porous and absorb too much water. If it’s unavoidable, wear washing up gloves if you are going to be in water all day to avoid the nails becoming weak.
Treat your nails every week – just like you would give yourself a facial or a scrub, treat your nails each week. File them down, add some gloss and fix the cuticles for best results.
Avoid chemicals – avoiding the use of harsh chemicals and cleaning agents on the skin is a simple way to avoid your nails getting weak and keeping your nails healthy.
Take vitamins – adding vitamins to your diet that boost your intake of supplements which can help the growth of hair and nails can have a positive effect on your overall health. Alternatively, you can apply cuticle oils and vitamins directly onto the nails by putting a hole in the capsule and applying it to the nails.
Enjoy a balanced diet – your diet has an effect on your nail health and eating lots of meals with protein will help to ensure you keep your nails healthy. As well as this look to consume plenty of protein-rich foods and lots of water for hydration.
