The Best Way To Care For Your Nails: Know All About It From Dermatologist Dr Jaishree Sharad

Do not cut or push back your cuticles. Cuticles are meant to protect your nail bed

Do you have nails that grow to a particular length before peeling or splitting? It's rather common, especially during this time of year when the weather is a little chilly and, as a result, nails become drier and don't look as healthy as you'd want them to. Everyone wants nice, clean-looking nails, but not by hiding the grey or yellow regions with nail polish. So, what do you do in such a scenario? Dermatologist Dr Jaishree Sharad has a few suggestions for better nails. In an Instagram video, she highlighted what needs to be done to get beautiful nails.

Here's what she suggested in her post:

1) Keep your nails dry and clean.


2) Trim your nails.

3) File you nails with an emery board or nail file. Always pull the file across the nail in the same direction. Filing back and forth can weaken nails.

4) Do not cut or push back your cuticles. Cuticles are meant to protect your nail bed.

5) Do not bite your nails.

6) Avoid using acetone to remove nail polish.

7) Do not dig out in-growing toe nails.

8) Take supplements of Biotin, vitamins A, B, C, D, iron, magnesium, and calcium.

9) Apply any oil or moisturiser on your nails twice a day.
