10 Tips For Stronger Nails

Take a biotin supplement

Biotin is a B vitamin. It's water-soluble and can't be kept, so you must drink it everyday. It strengthens hair and nails. It also supports the nervous system.


Avoid using gel or acrylic nails, if possible

These are advertised as an easy way to grow nails, but frequent use can weaken them. If you want to wear them, give your nails a rest between applications.


Use lotion on your nails

Apply hand cream to your nails after removing polish or if you feel dehydrated. Every time you wash your hands.


Change how you file your nails

Saw-like nail filing weakens nails. Sort them instead. Filing too much on the sides might weaken the nail.


Pay attention to your diet

Eat a balanced diet and take a multivitamin with minerals. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies may harm your nails and body.


Minimize exposure to water

Oversoaking may weaken and brittle your nails. Wash dishes with gloves and bathe without your hands.


Stay hydrated

Nail health requires enough water intake. Nails may crack and peel without enough moisture. Water keeps them hydrated and robust.


Give your nails a break from polish

Nail polish is beautiful, but it needs to breathe. Polish weakens nails, even nontoxic polish.


Don’t use your nails as a tool

Use a paper clip or your fingers to open a drink can. Breakage and chipping from using nails as instruments might weaken them.


Keep your nails on the shorter side

Shorter nails are less prone to chip, fracture, or split, keeping them robust.
