What should you know about nails

1 2 3

It’s  back to school time already and you think - the summer is almost over. You still might pay attention to how your skin and hair look but you probably don’t give your nails a whole lot of thought. 



What should you know about nails 

Fingernails grow very slowly, and your toenails grow even more slowly. If you lose your nails because of an injury or infection, it might take a year a half to grow back (a toenail) and a fingernail will take half a year to grow back. During the summer time, your fingernails grow faster.

Very long nails are symbolic of sexuality. The nails, like hair, are a reminder of your animal nature, yet are also indicative of aggression and self- protection.

Nail biting is strongest at a time of nervousness, tension or insecurity. It indicates a deep self-dislike, as you are biting at yourself. It is often connected with a fear of expressing sexuality or assertiveness, as it is a way of limiting any aggressive or sexually dominating tendencies.

Did you know that your fingernails can provide clues to your overall health? The look of your nails sometimes can help doctors tell if you are healthy or sick. For example, “Beau’s lines are indentations that run across the nails. Conditions associated with Beau’s lines include diabetes, pneumonia, and scarlet fever or can also be the sign of zinc deficiency.

Yellow nail syndrome is often a sign of respiratory disease, such chronic bronchitis. It can also be related to lymphedema ( swelling of hands problem).  

Sometimes germs can invade your nail  and cause an infection. The most common type of germ that causes nail infection called a fungus. Can happen if you walk barefoot at pools or in a public shower. Nobody likes what a fungus infection does to finger- and toenails. Cracked, discolored and thickened nails look unhealthy and unpleasant, so you keep them out of sight. And unless it’s treated, nail fungus just keeps getting worse. Now you can truly liberate your nails with Podiazole antifungal and whitening drops by Omiera Labs. The natural formula of powerful ingredients penetrates deep to the nail's protective barrier to get to the source and kill the infection.

Regrowth of healthy nails takes as little as six months for fingernail infections and up to twelve months for toenails. Extra-strength Podiazole is a potent adversary for fungus infections, eliminating fungus and its symptoms faster than other remedies available. Using double the amount of proven natural ingredients, Podiazole drops restore nails to look and feel healthy and attractive.



While most nail salons follow strict cleanliness and disinfection guidelines, look for the following when visiting a salon:
Does your nail technician have the necessary experience and/or license, if required? Are the stations clean? Does the nail technician wash her hands between clients? Are there dirty tools lying around? In addition, do not hesitate to ask how they clean their tools. This is why waxing, laser hair removal or creams are very important in our daily beauty regime. Temporary hair removal options include waxing, laser hair removal, hair inhibitors. Try Adroit  - the natural Hair Growth Inhibitors by Omiera Labs. This lightweight cream noticeably minimizes and slows hair re-growth while healing any bumps and breakouts occur after hair removal. Minimizes unwanted hair prevents breakouts after waxing, shaving, and hair removal.

If you get frequent manicures and pedicures, consider purchasing your own tools to be used at the salon. Shave your lower legs after getting a pedicure, not before. That means not shaving your lower legs for at least 24 hours before you get a pedicure. If you nick yourself while shaving, a pedicure could put you at risk for an infection.
