Here are four easy methods that can help you strengthen weak and brittle nails.
Are you in the world of pain and shame because of your brittle nails? Well, no more. Brittle nails not only look unappealing, but weak and chipped nails often expose the nail beds and give an open invitation to nail infections that can be very painful.
Fortunately, all that your nails need is a little extra care to strengthen them and restore their beauty.
Many factors can render your nails brittle. Overworking them or using them as a tool can be major factors. Prolonged and continuous use of nail polish without any break can also make your nails weak and subsequently brittle. If you do household chores without wearing gloves, your nails are also affected by the chemicals in cleaners and detergents.
In some cases, brittle nails may be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. If the state of your nails doesn’t improve with cosmetic or therapeutic methods, it may be time to visit your doctor.
However, in most cases, a little TLC can drastically improve the health of your nails.
