Strong, healthy nails can be an indicator of good health, but sometimes our nails aren’t as strong as we’d like them to. Read these tips to get very strong, healthy nails;
When you’re cleaning, try to protect your nails from too much contact with water, dish other harmful products.
You should keep your diet rich in vitamin E, Omega-3 fatty acids, and biotin, all of which help strengthen and repair your nails.
Try coconut, argan, or olive oil mixed with tea tree or vitamin E oil. By applying a large amount of oil to your nails with a cottonball and leaving it to soak, your nails will get a healthy dose of moisture.
Use a fine-grit nail file cause the coarser grit of nail files are made for artificial nails and can be harsh on your natural ones. Avoid using metal files that may damage your natural nails or the skin around them.
If you are a fan of polish, never peel it off after it begins to chip. Peeling the polish away will remove microscopic layers of nails and overtime will cause them to become soft and flexible.
Use a product called, “Stop the Bite.” It works great. It has a nasty aftertaste so it deters you from putting your hands near your mouth. This helps stop you from biting your nails.
You may be able to improve your weak nails by taking a supplement. Pick a supplement that contains vitamins A, C, D, and E, B vitamins, folic acid, zinc, iron, calcium, and biotin.
