How to Speed Up Nail Growth
The ways of accelerating growth and improving nail quality are found in eating and avoiding certain external influences.
Extreme diets, coldness and lack of protein negatively affect the growth and appearance of the nail.
Bring enough proteins and minerals to build nails: sulfur, iron, silicon, zinc, essential fatty acids and vitamins D, A and E. Make sure you increase your calcium intake.
Vitamin D is needed for strength and nail growth. The best way to fill your body this important vitamin is the regular exposure of the sun.
Vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen, makes skin more beautiful and firmer and stimulates faster nail growth. There are lemons, melons, peppers, cauliflowers, oranges, strawberries, kiwi.
If you think your diet does not contain enough nutrients, add a daily routine by adding protein shake and multivitamin quality.
Raise the circulation in your hands and fingers! It has been proven that working with your hands and fingers such as typing, playing, sewing, or gymnastics encourages nail growth.
We know that nail polish has a negative effect on nail health, but we can barely give it up.
Here are some useful tips for “healthy lacquer”:
- Occasionally make a pause of polishing
- Do not use products with acetone as it destroys and dryes the nails
- Buy 3 free varnishes that do not contain the notorious toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate (DBP)
The toluene solvent is applied to the varnishes for a more beautiful application. High doses of toluene can lead to poor cognitive tests, eye irritation and upper respiratory tract.
Long-term inhalation of high levels can lead to dementia and brain damage.
Formaldehyde serves to polish the nail look and gives strength. It is one of the main allergens and causes of contact dermatitis.
DBP prolongs durability of nail polish. Studies show that they negatively affect the thyroid gland and can disrupt normal brain development.
It also has a bad effect on liver function and metabolism. The research conducted in Korea has shown that children whose mothers were exposed to phthalates had lower levels of intelligence.
Strong and beautiful nails certainly look better in well cherished hands.
Keep your hands regularly nourished. Beware of excessive cold and heat, detergents, acids and chemical substances. Use protective gloves during cleaning.
If you expose your hands to harmful substances, dip them in a bowl with olive oil and lemon so that the skin becomes more resistant.
If you have very dry or sensitive hands, use olive oil before bed and apply cotton gloves for oil to work overnight.
