Why nails exfoliate, I know firsthand. You can say I’m a professional in this area. Bitter experience, but something he taught me.
My nails from birth were excellent, beautiful and long. Mom was very proud of them. As a student, I was very caring for them so that the boys would like the pens. And she decided to take care of herself and lose weight, only the method she chose was not the most correct: she excluded meat from the diet and became a vegetarian.
The first sign that not everything is in order with my body, oddly enough, was a separation of the nails, at first – a light one, and then – stronger than a strong one. When I was able to peel off the nail plate from the nail with a solid layer, it was decided to go to the therapist.
After passing the tests, they diagnosed a high degree of anemia. Nails exfoliated due to lack of iron in the body.
I returned the meat to the diet, saw the pills with iron, and after a while I solved the problem. Since then, as soon as the nails begin to exfoliate, I give blood from the finger.
The next time the nails began to exfoliate during pregnancy. Apparently, calcium left my body to form the bones of a child.
Interestingly, after childbirth, the nails did not recover until the end. Maybe the metabolism has changed, but with a length of 3mm the nails on the right hand begin to exfoliate.
Water and cleaning products
It did not take long to think about why the right hand was suffering. After long-term cleaning with the use of various cleaners, pastes and gels, the corners of the nails were immediately prone to delamination.
Water played its key role. The nail seemed to swell from it and did not always return to its normal state after deformation.
I bought household gloves, but I think you are familiar with this state, when it seems that now you can redo everything for a minute, and the gloves are still intact for several hours in a row.
Helped buying a dishwasher! When contact with hot water and dishwashing liquid was reduced, the nails became noticeably stronger.
Over the years of nail care, I noticed something else. Improper zapilivanie when manicure can also cause delamination of the nail plate.
one. A metal and rough file with large grains is sure to lay out a nail, if after it the edge is not processed by grinding or a file with barely noticeable grains, for example, ceramic.
2 Performing a manicure, zapiliva edge first, and then – soak the nail, so as not to cut on the wet. This can cause delamination.
3. You can not cut the nail with scissors. In fact, they squeeze the layers of the nail, and this compression causes delamination. Nail should only be cut.
These reasons for the bundle of nails, I found in my experience.
And what reasons do you know?
