It is said that the state of your nails says a lot about your health. Not only that, healthy and clean nails tell people that you are taking care of yourself. In this age where instant gratification is what people are looking for, we tend to forget that our forefathers had to make do with what are readily available around them. This did not stop them from having healthy hairs and nails.
Going natural though means you need to be dedicated to a healthy regimen. If your schedule does not allow you to follow this, there are always alternatives open to you. On the other hand, if you think you can go natural, start with your diet.
Our nails are made up of hard protein called Keratin. Like anything in our body, we can ensure that it stays healthy by making sure that we are giving our body the right dose of vitamins and minerals it needs. The lack of Vitamin A for example can lead to brittle nails. The same can be said about Calcium. So if your daily diet does not include Vitamin A and calcium-rich foods, it’s time to start changing it for the better.
Lack of water in our system is not only bad for our internal organs and the skin. It can also lead to dry and cracked nails. Therefore, by eating healthy foods and drinking the recommended amount of water every day, we can make sure that our nails are healthy. Not only that, we can also avoid other diseases.
