Hand Foot & Nail Health
Our hands, nails, and feet are often our primary point of contact with the world around us. As a result, conditions such as Athlete's Foot, Nail Fungus, and Tinea Veriscolor can, and do, strike our smallest appendages.Keeping hands and feet clean and dry can support health of skin and nails. Properly caring for nails and cuticles will alert you of potential problems, and moisturizing regularly may keep dry, cracked skin at bay. Nail fungal infections can happen at public places, like pools or locker rooms. Be sure that your nail salon properly sanitizes tools before getting a pedicure, or perform your own manicure & pedicures at home and don't share your tools with others.
Nutrients like protein, biotin, iron, and zinc are often associated with healthy nails. Deficiencies in vitamins such as vitamins A, C, E, D, and the B-complex vitamins, such as Biotin, may cause nails to become brittle, dry, weak, or dull.
