If your nails are brittle or chipped it might mean that you have too much iron or that you have heart disease. Often we forget about our nails or assume that because we wash dishes, the hot water makes our nails weak. It might also mean that you need more vitamin C, folic acid or protein.
If you have grooves in your nails that can mean that you’re developing psoriasis, you can find dryness in other parts of your body as well. Super thick nails can be a yeast infection, issues with your thyroid gland or even lung problems.
As Latinas, we love beauty products and enjoy looking pretty. So, don’t neglect your nails because underneath that nail polish there could be signs of something more. If you suspect you have one of these health conditions, please visit your doctor because they can help guide in the right direction and treat a health issue before it develops into something more serious.
