The condition of your nails can show signs of health issues just by their shape and texture. Here is a guide on how to prevent future problems that can help you save money instead of going to the doctors.
#1: Nourish it!
Skin dryness can cause ridge fingernails, an indication of possibly having eczema. Prevent it by moisturising your hands constantly with hands creams or visiting your local salon for a complete hand spa.
#2: Water and vitamins are Essential
H2o is a necessity for you, your skin and even your nails, but not getting enough water can cause so many problems. A Cracked and splitting nail is linked to having thyroid disease. This means your body is dehydrated and deficient in Vitamin A (which helps your body process protein and is a key ingredient in your nails), vitamin C, or biotin, which is a B vitamin that can help strengthen nails. Don’t forget to drink every time you feel tired and dry. This will keep you from getting dehydrated and it will make your skin glow. It will also prevent you from having that dry and peeling skin around your nails.
#3: Trim Regularly
Did you know that your nails grow faster if the weather is warmer? If you don't keep your nails neat and trimmed. This can cause unattractive dirt build up under your fingernails that can lead to fungal infections and yellow nails (indicating a more serious conditions such as lung disease, diabetes or psoriasis) .Take some time every few weeks to trim your nails and shape them in a manner you like. If you have hanging skin around your nails, handle it carefully – trim it gently so that it doesn’t stick out or cause more pain. Do not bite or pick the cuticles. Take a nail cutter and cut them neatly.
#4: Strengthen and Pop a Colour on it
Gnawed nails is a result of nail biting and a sign of persistent anxiety linking to stress and obsessive compulsive disorder. Keeping it immaculate with your favourite colours will make you stop doing this bad habit as it will remind you not to ruin these flawlessly groomed fingernails.
