When you’re cleaning up around the house your fingernails will come in contact with all sorts of chemicals with cleaning products. This can cause the nails to become very damaged, be brittle and crack and break easily. When cleaning around the house, wearing a pair of gloves will alleviate your nails from coming into contact with chemicals leaving them in great shape! As well, when working outdoors in a garden it helps to wear gloves to keep your fingernails protected from breaks.
Biting your nails is a no-no. If a nail breaks or you get a tear in one of them it only makes it worse to try to bite the rest off. This can do a lot of damage to the skin and nail. Using a nail clipper or fingernail fine to cut it off and file it down rounding it off will make the nail stay in better condition.
There are several things to take note of for nail care at home. When using nail removers, never use one that has varnish. The varnish in the remover causes a lot of damage to the nails. If you have no choice but to use varnish, be sure to get one that has no acetone in it. This will help with protecting the fingernails.
Most women like to use moisturizers on their body as a daily routine. Taking time to use some of that moisturizer around your hands and fingernails, rubbing it in for a while will help keep your nails nice and moist. Using a moisturizer that contains some vitamin E can add a lot of strength to the nail skin and nails themselves.
Another daily routine that can help your nails look gorgeous is soaking them daily. Using some hot, soapy water will keep the skin and the nails nice and soft. Now and again, adding some lemon juice will help to add some shine and shimmer to the skin and nails.
Many may not realize it but the diet you eat has a lot to do with keeping the nails in great shape. Eating some foods that contain some vitamin E is great for the nails. Eggs, nuts, and other foods contain vitamin E so adding those to your diet can help maintain good nail health.
