Tips to Keep Your Nails Healthy and Beautiful

It’s time to level-up your nail game. Whether you have your nails professionally manicured or you do them yourself, there are several ways you can keep your nails healthy. It’s time to lay off the acrylics that do damage to the natural nail bed. Try to avoid the unpleasant chemicals and fumes, and opt for a more natural approach. You can simply paint your nails with harmless nail polish, and nourish them to grow. Here are some tips to have the beautiful nails you’ve always desired:

Keep Nails Trimmed

If nail hygiene is important to you, it’s crucial to keep your fingernails trimmed. When your nails are relatively long, you allow the possibility for dirt, germs, and bacteria to flourish under your nails, which can lead to painful infections. We suggest keeping your fingernails on the shorter-side for this reason. It’s important to keep the undersides of your nails clean by scrubbing them gently with soap and water. When you select equipment to use to trim your nails, make sure that it is properly sterilized. You can avoid the spread of infections that lead to swelling, pain, and discomfort.

Moisturize Cuticles

Cuticle treatment and maintenance are commonly overlooked, especially if you don’t go to the nail salon for your manicure or pedicure. If you cut back your cuticles too far, or push them around too much, you may damage them. The easiest and safest way to care for your cuticles is to soak your hands and feet into soap, warm water for about 10 minutes every few days. This will soften the cuticles and keep your nails healthy. You can also apply a moisturizing cuticle oil to prevent dryness and cracking. Avoid cutting your cuticles because this makes them hard, and more likely to split off.

Try Biotin

Biotin, also known as Vitamin B, is involved in a wide range of metabolic processes. It utilizes fats, carbohydrates, and amino acids and converts them into energy. Biotin keeps your skin, hair, eyes, live and nervous system in top shape. You can get biotin from a well-balanced diet, but supplements are commonly consumed to retain biotin at a higher rate. It is water-soluble, so extra biotin will simply pass through the body via urination. Some natural sources of biotin include egg yolks, peanuts, walnuts, pecans, soybeans, whole grains, bananas, and mushrooms. It’s important to consume raw versions of these foods because they contain more active biotin.
