Understanding your Nails

If you talk about style, you will not only talk about fashion, but also your nails. Many people find great looking nails very important and attractive. It is a choice, though, to look at beautiful manicured ones. Good-looking and long ones look stylish and classy. Flawlessly manicured nails can usually say a lot about an individual’s stylishness and self-confidence. They grow from the area under the cuticle, called the matrix. The growing part of the nail is called as matrix and the cuticle is the layer of skin that protects it. It is very vital for nail strength and growth. The growth of new nail cells in the matrix pushes older nail cells toward the fingertips and becomes hard.Nails

Genetics and vigor are usually the decisive aspects on how quickly nails grow. They grow about 0.1 millimeter a day. This means that it takes a fingernail roughly four to six months to fully regenerate. the healthy ones are usually smooth and without any cracks or white spots. They are unvarying in shade and consistency and are free of any kind of discoloration. Nails generally grow faster in summer than in the winter. It is researched that nails on the dominant hand grow faster. The optimum and practical length of them depends on the activities and lifestyle of the person. It is advisable to keep in mind that the nail tip can extend no further than one third of the body. Nails break less often when they are all of the same length.

It is very important to keep them without nail polish once in a while, so that it allows them to breathe. It is also advisable to keep a hand lotion or cream near the kitchen sink. It is also essential to wear gloves while doing household chores or gardening and rub cream on the hands, before putting on the gloves.
