most common cause of brittle nails


If the fragility of your nails is causing you concern, it can be helpful to learn what makes them susceptible to breakage. Brittle nails can be a source of frustration but there are a variety of factors that could be contributing to the issue. Consider some of the following common reasons for brittle nails.

Brittle nails are frequently caused by environmental issues such as excessive exposure to harsh soaps and detergents, or too much time spent submerged in the water. To help combat against this, it’s essential to keep nails moisturized through the application of a reliable hand cream or lotion. Furthermore, utilizing a humidifier at home can be effective in avoiding dryness by maintaining the humidity levels in your residence.

If your nails are brittle and weak, there is a good chance it is due to a lack of nutrients in your diet. Make sure you are getting enough protein, iron, and zinc from lean meats, dark leafy greens, nuts, and seeds. If your daily intake of these important vitamins and minerals is not quite sufficient, then you may need to take a supplement to make up for the deficiency. A balanced diet containing all these essential components can help keep your nails strong and healthy.

Certain health conditions may be associated with fragile nails, such as thyroid dysphoria, iron deficiency anemia, and diabetes. If you happen to suffer from any of these maladies, it is recommended that you confer with your medical professional to devise the most suitable action plan.

Brittle nails can be an unwelcome symptom of dealing with stress. When the body is feeling fazed, it may crank out hormones that weaken your nails’ structure. To keep this from happening, it can be essential to carve out time for relaxation. Challenging yourself with exercise, yoga, or meditation can work wonders to allow you to de-stress and help make your nails stronger.

For those seeking ways to strengthen their weak nails, here are a few easy steps to try! Make sure to keep your nails hydrated, combine this with eating nutritiously, and as much as possible, strive to de-stress. In the event that an underlying condition is causing your nails to be brittle, don’t hesitate to reach out to a physician for any recommended treatments.
