How to Achieve Healthy Nails

We rarely think of our nails in a health sense. They are just part of us, they can be a bit weaker at times, break more easily, and be semi-discolored, but that doesn’t mean they are unhealthy, right? Wrong. These are only a few symptoms of unhealthy nails. And although the health of your nails may not make a huge impact, they can have an effect on your overall health and lead to other problems that may become more serious.

Ladies love painting their nails—it makes them feel fancy and stylish, but depending on how they get their nails done, it can be detrimental for the health of their nails. That is why Glam Rock Nails is working towards healthy, natural nail products that will help maintain healthy nails, while allowing for girls to continue to get them done.

With our Soy Nail Polish Remover, we are slowly, but surely, making progress! And that is exciting news for ladies everywhere! But our nail polish remover is not the only thing that can help the health of your nails. There are many things, things you never would have thought of, that can help improve your nail health.

Diet

Believe it or not, the food you eat can help your nails. Your nails are correlated with bone health, protein is good for bone health, which in turn means that protein is good for your nails. It is pretty simple and the foods that help your nails are pretty easy to come by. These nail strengthening foods include:

  • Eggs
  • Beans
  • Salmon
  • Lean meats
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Green peas

Eat these protein packed choices and add them to your diet for improved nail and bone health. You will start to notice a difference in the strength of your nails. It is also important to drink a lot of water, not only for your nail health, but also for your overall health. Stay hydrated!

Cuticles

Cuticle health is imperative to good nail health. And there are dos and don’ts when it comes to maintaining healthy cuticles. First of all, never cut your cuticles. Push them back using a cuticle pusher and oil, but be gentle about it. Opening an area between skin and nail can be an invitation to bacteria, causing infections. You don’t need to push cuticles back, but if you do, be gentle about it. Keep cuticles moisturized. This will also help maintain their health, making your nails healthier.

Avoid Chemicals

This is obviously a hard thing to do when nail polish is a product you constantly use. In our current, eco-friendly society, it is easier than ever to find chemical-free nail polish. There are even polishes that repair nails! Undo all the terrible things you did to your nails with those magical products! When you go into a salon, read the labels to find the polishes that are chemical free, or contain less than the others.

Glam Rock Nails Soy Nail Polish Remover is also a great product to invest in. Made of natural ingredients, acetone-free, and has removed 8 chemicals from our formula. We created a healthier, non-toxic remover that will help your nails maintain the healthy level you worked so hard to achieve. And better yet, it is also odor free! No more horrible smells that you have learned to associate with nail products and salons!

Don’t Pick

This is something we are all guilty of, whether we wear nail polish or not. But we will start with the nail polish people out there, do not pick your nail polish off! It ruins your nail beds and can damage your nails. If you want your old, chipped polish gone, use a remover, preferably one that is acetone free, like our soy based remover from Glam Rock Nails.

Also avoid picking your nails, don’t rip them off after the break or snag. Use a file or a nail clipper and rid yourself of the nail bits that keep snagging on your sweater. This will keep them healthy, and avoid further snags, tear, or problems.

These are only a few of the many things that can be done to improve your nail health. They seem pretty simple, right? And they will make a big difference in giving you strong and healthy looking nails, that will look even better with a fresh coat of your favorite chemical-free nail polish.
