no I don't have any problems with weather conditions. I suggest you try the creme and see if that works for you.lagartija wrote:The only problem with that product is it sounds so tasty.... being a barely reformed nail-biter, I might be inclined to take a nibble! Now I only allow myself to bite the left. However, when under real stress, I have lightly nibbled on the right but will immediately pick up a nail file instead.
I found my nails improved when I supplemented with vitamin D3. I noticed that my nails were always better in the summer and it occurred to me that I spent more time outside. Since I live at 42 degrees latitude, the winter sun just isn't sufficient for good D3 production, I guess.
It is great that you found a solution that works for you. Sometimes nail problems are nutritional, and sometimes it is due to drying out (especially if you have your hands in water all the time).
Do you find that you have more problems with your nails in the winter when conditions are drier?
Try using dish gloves. I do that now and it has helped a lot.Dons wrote:Thanks Philip. I will give it a try. I usually use one of the nail hardeners but know they have toxic chemicals in them. I am a person that does a lot of dishes and this can cause a problem with nails.
Thanks to this post, I have got hold of, and been using, Burt's Bees for a week now and my nails are looking healthier. They don't seem to be so brittle, for one. I'm keeping my fingers crossed (no puns intended here, hehe) that the nails stay healthy and don't chip or peel like they used to.Philip Altobelli wrote:I haven't broken a nail in over 6 years. My teacher had told me to use Burts' bees banana hand creme (or almond milk, what ever scent you like better), it's all natural. I put it under and over the nail every night before bed. it helps keep them healthy and has made them strong without the use of unnecessary oils or harmful chemicals. If i go a week without using it the nail will slightly chip or peel- but not break. I suggest anyone serious about keeping their nails healthy in a natural way try this. If you don't see a significant difference in a week, please, feel free to post your results- good or bad.
