TIPS: How To Make Your Nails Grow Stronger

The secret to perfect looking nails all comes down to establishing a consistent grooming routine. For mine, I always make sure that mine includes daily washing, moisturizing and proper maintenance. When it comes to keeping your nails strong, there are many things that can be done to maintain its strength, appearance and health.

It is also important to make sure they aren’t cutting your cuticles off, which stunts nail growth.

Here are helpful tips to keep your nails strong!

Keep your nails clean
Believe it or not, keeping your nails clean ensures that your nails are growing at a healthy rate and frees them from any possibility of contracting bacteria underneath. Always make sure to properly clean your nails -- the best way is by simply making sure to wash your hands thoroughly after using the washroom, eating, and touching unclean surfaces. If you’d like to go the extra mile, use latex-free gloves before you decide to wash dishes, clean or be in contact with chemicals.

Look for a good moisturizer specifically for your nails
I always make sure to moisturize my hands throughout the day -- I actually feel like I may have a slight obsession but it really does aid in prolonging nail growth! Even something as simple as coconut oil will do! You don’t have to break the bank to achieve the best nails! There are so many options for nail growth in Canada!

Use a nail hardener
A nail hardener’s main function is to strengthen your nail enamel so that your nails will flourish. Great brands for nail hardening polish are OPI and Sally Hansen -- I swear by these two! They work extremely well on my nails and have diminished nail breakage. It can be applied as a base or top coat, whichever you prefer.

Use hand sanitizer in moderation
Believe it or not, using too much hand sanitizer can actually dry out your nails and cause them to become brittle and more susceptible to breakage. That’s definitely something we don’t want, so make sure not to be too generous with it. Trust me, I learnt the hard way!
