Tips for maintenance of healthy nails.

  • Add more grains to your diet to have strong nails.
  • Never cut the cuticles and calluses as the cuticles protect the nails from infection and the calluses will grow back harder giving you discomfort.
  • Even if you don't like applying a nail polish, try and apply a clear coat occasionally as it will protect your nails.
  • Wearing rubber gloves while doing the house work is advisable. This will protect your nails from the harsh chemicals used in detergents.
  • Wearing closed shoes for a longer time creates sweating which can cause fungal infection to your nails. To avoid this use cotton socks instead of socks made of synthetiics. Further make your legs free of the shoes when and where ever possible.
  • Consume foods which are rich in zinc like boiled eggs and milk. You will observe them doing wonders to your nails.
  • Avoid filing the nails just after a bath as at this time they tend to be weaker and break easily.
  • Buffing your nails regularly increases the blood supply and makes them grow faster.
