  • First of all, stop biting your nails if you do. Nail-biting is not only one of the most annoying habits, but also very unhygienic. Biting nails constantly stunts its growth and ultimately damages it to an extent that it stops growing. Let your bitten nails start to heal up now and stop biting them.
  • Gelatin promotes nail growth. If you don’t like to eat gelatin foods like desserts, try taking it in the form of capsules. A good physician should be able to recommend you a good gelatin capsule. If your nails are too soft and brittle, you probably lack calcium. Take calcium supplements with a balanced diet to promote the growth of healthy nails.
  • You need to take care of your hands properly in order to promote nail growth. Don’t use too many harsh chemicals like detergents and cleaners on bare hands and if you do, make sure that you wash it off thoroughly. Keep your nails clean and apply moisturizer to make your fingers soft and supple.
  • After washing your hands, dry them off nicely and apply a hand lotion that is vitamin-enriched, daily. Keep your cuticles clean and don’t mess with them too often by pushing them back every now and then. Trim nails regularly to promote faster growth.
  • Massaging your finger tips and nails will also go a long way in promoting growth. Get a good quality hand massaging lotion and massage your palms, fingers and nails gently with it on a daily basis. This will increase blood flow and that will promote the growth of nails.
