Grow Your Nails Faster By Following These Simple Tips
If you have brittle nails, growing them can be challenging, as they break easily. And broken nails can hurt a lot. And while there aren't any known ways to speed up growth, we can do ways to strengthen them so we don't lose the progress of growing them.
Below are some tips we can impart for your fingertips - *wink wink*
The makeup of our nails is the same as the makeup of our skin and hair. And since we're talking about strengthening our nails, keeping a balanced diet, and consuming food that is good for your skin and hair is on top of our list.
Dermatologists worldwide recommend incorporating food rich in cysteine, folate, biotin, zinc, and vitamins a and c, in your diet. Not only does this benefit your nails, but also your skin and hair.
Protecting Nails from Harsh Soaps/Cleaners
Just because nails are technically harder doesn't mean that they're not sensitive. Like our skin, they also need to take care of, which means being protected from harsh substances such as strong soaps or cleaners that can cause them to dry and break.
Treat your nails the way you treat your skin. It also needs moisture. The best moisturizer for your nails is natural oils, as they help lock in moisture in your skin. Such oils are shea butter, avocado oil, castor oil, or jojoba oil.
Grooming and Avoiding Nail Products with Toxic Substances
While a regular mani-pedi sounds fun, it isn't as fun for your nails. Constant pushing and scrubbing do damage to the cuticle and thins it out or creates snags. Aside from that, many nail polish and nail polish remover's formulation includes substances that are harmful to the skin and nails. Examples of these harmful substances are formaldehyde and camphor.
If polishing your nails can be helped, going for HEMA-free and formaldehyde-free products is the best way to go. PINKARAT has a wide array of one-step gel polish that is both skin-friendly and cruelty-free.
Consulting a Dermatologist
Our skin is the largest organ in our body and serves as the first protective layer of all the other organs inside. This is why it is only right that we get it checked now and then. And while going to the dermatologist may sound bougie – remember that seeing a doctor for check-ups is normal, including skin doctors.
So, getting your skin regularly checked should be normalized whether you've noticed a weird mole or slow healing pimple or neither one of those.
By following these tips, you are taking care of your nails and skin and your overall body. It's okay to put as much product as you like on your skin or even follow all the skin rituals you see on your phone and computer screen. But nothing will ever feel as good as feeling beautiful because you feel healthy, too.
