Whether you don’t like it or whether you find this very shallow it is true that most people will form their opinion or opinions about you based on your set of nails. If your nails are dirty and not well-trimmed this would leave a negative impression on most people.
If you are having problems with your nails, there are certain ways on how you can improve its appearance, texture and overall health. Here are some helpful tips on how you can bring back to health nails that break or split easily as well as nails that have yellowed.
Care for Your Nails Properly
To get a healthy set of nails and to keep them healthy, you would need to learn how to care for them properly. This is the first step. If you have been applying nail polish on your nails too often, regularly using acrylic nails or drenching them with polish remover, you will end up having yellowed and brittle nails. You would probably notice yellowing on your nails as soon as you leave them bare. To avoid this, you should at least wear your nails without anything on them for 2 days in a week. To keep them strong, you can soak them in Argan oil at least twice in a week. The oil will give your nails its needed moisture plus nail benefiting nutrients like Vitamin E and essential fatty acids.
Keep them Well Trimmed
You should not wear your nails too long as this can only lead to chipping and tearing. Make sure that you trim them at a length that will let you do your daily chores easily minus the breaking or tearing of your nails. To avoid the edges from latching or catching on to things, file them on a regular basis. If you notice that the yellowing of your nails is not going away and you see that there is thickening of your nails involved, consult your doctor as you may be suffering from a nail fungus infection which would need certain medication.
Keep Your Body Healthy
To ensure that your nails are healthy, you should keep your body healthy. Follow a healthy and balanced diet. Doing so would mean that every part of your body including the nails get the nutrients they need. Drink enough water every single day. Snack on fruits especially those packed with B vitamins. You can also take multivitamins with high levels of biotin or take an additional biotin supplement. These things would help keep your nails healthy.
