Your nails can tell you a lot about your health. For example, did you know that pale nails suggest that a person could be suffering from anaemia? Perhaps the most obvious nail hack is the presence of brittle nails. This can indicate that you are suffering from a deficiency of the vitamins A and C. Growing long nails can be a nightmare when your nails are prone to breakages or are partially brittle. Here are 3 tips to help you achieve that anticipated nail growth…
1. It is important that you practice good care and maintenance with your nails in order to ensure that they build up strength. Our nails take a beating on a daily basis from household chores, the weather and, well, using our hands. Although it may seem like a step backwards, you should trim your nails regularly to ensure healthy growth. In addition to this, shape them using accurate techniques to avoid ripping them.
2. Protect your nails from harsh chemicals and substances. For example, cleaning products, especially bleach, can be very drying on the nails which means that they are more prone to breakage. You can help prevent this by wearing rubbering gloves and applying a moisturiser after coming into contact with any chemicals to supplement any lost moisture.
3. Use a cuticle oil in order to provide your nails with a direct form of moisture. Essential oils protect the nails from breakage, thinning, splits, brittleness and even beau lines. This means that you will have the healthiest nails going!
Nails which are well cared for and moisturised are known to grow much longer, stronger and healthier.
