Heal And Repair Damaged Nails
There are a lot of reasons why your nails get damaged. Here are some simple tips to heal your brittle and cracked nails:
Keep yourself hydrated – You probably know by now that when your nails dry out they get brittle and crack. The best way to prevent this is also the cheapest. Just drink water… lots of it. At the same time try to cut down drinks like soda that contain a lot of sugar. This is a great thing to do even if you don’t have any nail problems as it reduces the risk of diabetes.
Vitamins and minerals –The lack of calcium in your alimentation can be a serious problem. Try to eat a lot of leafy green vegetables and dairy products. Eat foods that are high in biotins. These include peanuts, lentils, sardines and vegetables like cauliflower or egg yolks.
Use oil – Soak a cotton ball in extra virgin olive oil and rub it on your nails and cuticles three to four times a day. This will also help to maintain your nails hidrated and keep them from getting brittle.
Use a moisturizer – Every time you wash your hands try to use and intense hydrating cream or hand lotion.
Nails reveal facts about your health
It’s a known fact that nails can reveal a great deal of information about your current state of health. Take a good look at your nails. If you see ridges and areas of unusual color and shape you have reasons to worry. Illness sometimes causes change in your nail structure and appearance that your MD can use in order to give a diagnose.
The most common nail disorders that may be linked with illnesses are:
1.“Beau’s lines” are indentations that run across your nail and are caused by severe illness such as pneumonia or measles.
2.“Clubbed fingers” — The tips of your fingers widen while the nails curve around your fingertips. This simptom is caused by lung disease in over 80% of people who have clubbed fingers.
3.“Lindsay’s nails” appear in a small percentage of kidney disorder sufferers. Lindsay’s nails have a specific arc of brownish discoloration.
4.“Spoon nails” are very soft nails that look scooped out. This can be a symptom of severe mineral deficiency (in over 90% of the cases, iron deficiency).
5.“Terry’s nails” look white and opaque, but the nail tip has a brownish band. This condition often indicates cirrhosis, congestive heart failure, adult-onset diabetes, cancer, or aging.
