Here are some facts we bet you didn't know about nails!
YOUR DIET AFFECTS THE HEALTH OF YOUR NAILS
Eating foods to help your hair shine? Nails and hair are both made out of the protein keratin. Eating healthy foods and vitamins will help strengthen both your hair and nails, while a junk food diet will lead to peeling nails and split ends.
EXAMS OR A STRESSFUL JOB CAN AFFECT YOUR NAILS
Some people cope with stress by chewing their nails but that’s not the only reason stress could be damaging your nails. Stress and the associated lack of sleep can divert your body’s nutrients and energy away from growing healthy nails and hair. It’s called beauty sleep for a reason!
YOUR CUTICLES ARE THERE TO PROTECT YOU
Cuticles stop germs and bacteria getting into and damaging your nail bed. Try not to cut your cuticles. Care for them by applying moisturizer and pushing them back to avoid an overgrown look.
YOUR NAILS CAN TELL THE STORY OF THE REST OF YOUR HEALTH
