Tips for Maintaining Healthy Nails

Keeping up with nail care, whether you get your nails done often or rarely is important.

There is no need to worry about white spots on the nails, red or irritated skin around the nails, or peeling and splitting of the nails anymore because these tips will keep your nails healthy and strong.


According to Good House Keeping, a dermatologist recommends keeping your hands washed and clean at all times. You can do this by removing any traces of nail polish with acetone-free remover, applying soap to a toothbrush, and exfoliating to remove any buildup, such as dirt and dry skin.


Another tip would be to be careful with what you use on your nails. For example, don't use any harsh tools that will damage or irritate the nails. Our nails are sensitive; they should be handled with care.


When it is time to do your nails, trimming them down every two weeks could help limit the amount of breaking, and filing whenever you need could help smooth any rough edges. If you are going to paint your nails, read the labels to ensure you are using good products, free of toxic chemicals, and apply a base and top coat if you want extra protection and less chipping.


If you are someone who likes to get gel nails, using sunscreen or UV protection gloves can help to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. If you are someone who doesn't mind having a manicure at all times, taking a break once in a while could help to strengthen the nails.


Lastly, protecting your hands when doing activities that include chemicals, soaking, or dirtying your hands is suggested. For example, if you are washing dishes with your bare hands, the soapy water could weaken your nails. If you are cleaning, dirt and chemicals can get into the nail. To protect your nails, you could use any glove of your choice.


Maintaining your nails is the first step to healthy and strong nails. We hope these tips work just as well for you.
