Having nice nails isn’t completely left up to having good genetics. There are many natural remedies you can try if you want to build strong, healthy nails.
First, let’s start by understanding what nails are and what elements are used in creating them, and then we’ll cover what you can do to make them strong and healthy. Let’s get into it!
Your fingernails and toenails are made up of a substance called alpha-keratin. Alpha-keratin is a fibrous protein also found in the outer layer of skin and hair follicles. This protein creates the hard outer layer known as your nail.
Originally, our nails were used for picking things up and gripping tightly onto objects. However, we’ve evolved to use our nails as more of a fashion statement and a signature of good health. Well-trimmed and manicured nails give off the impression that you are looking after your health and wellness and take pride in your physical appearance.
