However if nails become extremely brittle, it could be a sign of health issue. The following tips can help to have strong nails and cuticles.

  • Wear dish gloves as our nails expand in water which increases the chance of breaking.
  • Take magnesium, omega-3 fatty acid supplements.
  • Few drops of lemon juice with olive oil turn brittle and chipped nails to strong and healthy nails.
  • Filing of snags or irregularities regularly helps to prevent further breakage or splitting.
  • Iron deficiency can cause concave or depressed nails. So make sure that you are not iron deficient.
  • Drink lots of water and maintain healthy diet.
  • Reduce the use of water, polish remover and dark polishes.
  • Nails and cuticles can take beating from filing, handling papers and typing. So use the flat of your finger pads on the key board instead of tips of your nails.
  • Don’t pull or tear at hang nails.

Healthy nails are beautiful nails. The most important thing is to eat well and groom them regularly.
