Maintain a Balanced Diet
Just like the rest of your body, your nails need proper nutrition to stay healthy and strong. Include a variety of nutrient-rich foods in your diet, such as lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and foods high in biotin, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids. These nutrients promote nail growth and overall nail health.
Avoid Nail-Biting and Picking
Nail-biting and picking can cause significant damage to your nails, leading to weak and brittle nails, infections, and uneven growth. Practice techniques to break these habits, such as keeping your nails trimmed and applying a bitter-tasting nail polish specifically designed to deter nail-biting.
Choose Quality Nail Products
Opt for high-quality nail polishes, base coats, and top coats that are free from harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP (dibutyl phthalate). These chemicals can cause damage and discoloration to your nails. Look for nail products that are labeled “3-free” or “5-free” for a safer and healthier nail care routine.
