Just like the other parts of your body, your nails need to be moisture too from time to time as the dry nails can easily get chipped and peeled. Make sure that whenever you apply moisturising cream on your body; rub it on your nails and fingers too so that they can also get the moisture to get the protection against all the dust and dry atmosphere, especially in summers when the heat is at its peak and there are more chances for nails to have a dryness.  Also, when you keep your hands in water for longer period or you remove your nail paint, it is recommended for you to apply moisturised immediately to prevent all the effects as nail colours act as the prominent moisturising agents.

However, you can either try asking your doctor to recommend a different prescription for you that is free from all the side-effects or you can start making use of the gloves in order to be assured that your hand nails are completely protected while your perform any task that requires the involvement of any dangerous thing like some chemicals that can dry off the skin.

Use the right technique

It is the general tendency of every individual that they do not really remove the earlier applied nail paint before completely removing the first one. Well, it could result in chirping and peeling of your nails to a great extent so try to remove your nail paint completely before you even hold the another one to apply. File your nails in a single direction and do not just buff them off in all the directions as that could end up adding to the ugly look of the nails. Also, make sure that after you apply the new nail colour; leave it as it is for at least 10 minutes to get the proper effect.

You might be able to use various alternative solutions that have been mentioned above in order to make your nails appear better n cuter but along with these simple remedies, it is necessary that you take personal care of your nails hygiene as they are most prone to getting the dirt particles inside and thus should be taken proper care of. Remember! No one is going to come to you and provide you a suggestion about the same. Thus, you would yourself be required to have a look at them and consequently clean them on regular basis.

If even these remedies do not work for you then you can even consult a doctor regarding the same before it actually turns out to be something serious as infection through nails spread more easily than any other medium. Eat healthy, keep the things cleaned and devote sometime daily to take care of your hands as others can only suggest you but the ultimate caring is in your own hands. Do not avoid the chirping and peeling problem and get it treated in its initial stages only.

Use only high quality products and do not take any risk or be careless in any terms when it comes to taking care of your own health!
