First things first, if you’re biting your nails, STOP! This is the worst thing you can do for yourself. Long term chronic nail biters can develop nail fungus easily through the cracks and damages on the nail. Biting your nails can do irreparable damage to your cuticle and nail bed permanently stunting the growth of your nails.

Always wear rubber gloves when doing the dishes, it gives you a safe barrier between your already weak nails and the hot water. Not to mention the harsh chemicals that could greatly weaken the strength and health of your nails as well. Try to put as little stress on your nails as possible. A lot of people rub the tops of their nails when nervous, this could lead to permanent bends and ridges on top of the nails.

Vitamins and cuticle care should be a top priority! Massaging your cuticles with oil or store bought creams helps blood circulate and flow stimulating rapid nail growth. Vitamins can help\ boost your keratin levels, try taking biotin a few times a day and you should start seeing a difference after just a few months.
