Facts About Nail Health

Our fingernails come in handy, as they are great tools for opening and operating small objects. They are great for giving back rubs and scratching itches. And they can be a beautiful addition to your look with a simple coat of paint. But what we do not realize is that healthy nails are important, the health of our nails can indicate other health problems we may not realize we have.

Nails, along with hair and skin, are made of keratin, which is protein. Because your nails are made of protein, more protein in your diet can help keep nails healthy, as well as hair and skin. Keeping your nails healthy is not a huge challenge, but when you do see signs of unhealthy nails it might mean that you have some other problems.

Nail Health

Although health problems that can be discovered from discolored nails, can’t be solved with good nail health, nail care is still important and can keep your nails looking healthy. Basic nail care is simple:

  • You want to keep your nails clean and dry to avoid infections, as well as never cutting your cuticles, and apply lotions to your nails and cuticles every day.
  • For stronger nails, cut them with a nail cutter, and round them with a file. You should always avoid ripping, biting, or picking at your nails.
