Your nails can often be an area that’s overlooked. Housework, poor health and diet can all have an effect on the condition of our nails. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to improve nail health. If you want to achieve healthy nails, take a look at these seven ways to get healthy nails fast.
Use hand cream
Using a hand cream with vitamin E will improve the condition of your overall nails.
Use a nail oil
Massaging oil onto the nails and cuticles will strengthen your nails. Almond, argan and jojoba oils are the three best oils to use as they will improve the condition of the nails naturally.
Use a nail hardener
A nail hardener prevents nails from breaking or splitting. Using this product once a week will restore damaged or weak nails to bring them back to their natural glory. Just ensure to avoid using a nail hardener containing formaldehyde as this ingredient can cause damage.
Consume a healthy diet
The saying ‘you are what you eat’ couldn’t be more apt for nail health. Consuming a diet rich in whole grains, eggs, bananas and avocado will help to promote healthier nails. Also, try eating foods with omega 3 fatty acids. These foods include oily fish and flax seeds. To repair and strengthen your nails, ensure you’re eating lots of protein.
Take a supplement
If your diet is lacking in particular nutrients or minerals, for example, if you’re a vegan or vegetarian, try taking a supplement. Vitamins A, C and E, as well as calcium, are all beneficial for nail strength and growth.
Protect your hands from external damage by wearing gloves. When you’re washing dishes, gardening or cleaning, wearing gloves will help to sustain good nail health.
