There is nothing better than having a fresh coat of polish on your nails. It may boost your confidence or help you feel more ‘polished.’ But, taking care of your nails when there is no polish on them is important. You don’t want your nails to feel neglected and have poor health.
Here are some reasons why nail care is so important.
Strengthen Your Nails
Have you ever struggled to grow out your nails? Well, this could be because they are weak due to lack of care. Caring for your nails is one way to promote growth and strengthen your nail and nail beds. Try to avoid biting or peeling the skin around your fingernails. Try filing or trimming your nails to keep them shorter until they are stronger, to prevent breakage as well.
Avoid Injury and Infection
If you don’t care for your nails, then injury and infection may happen. You may open a jar at home and catch your nail awkwardly, leaving you in a great deal of pain. Or, you may develop ingrown nails that lead to infection. Keeping your nails trimmed and clean can help you avoid injury and infection.
Keep Them Looking Beautiful
When you engage in conversation, do you ever catch yourself noticing healthy fingernails? Well, it isn’t uncommon. You want to keep your nails looking fresh and beautiful. You don’t want them to become yellow due to lack of care or appear uneven due to bad biting habits. Make sure to moisturize your nails to avoid cracking and chipping, and avoid picking at your nails.
Remember, nail polish can’t get rid of unhealthy nails. It will only cover it for a length of time. So, care for your nails so you don’t feel as though you need nail polish constantly!
