Does the cold affect us? Of course! What about our hands and nails? Do they suffer and how can we take care of them?
Does cold weather affect your nails?
During cold weather, the nail plate becomes dehydrated, resulting in peeling and splitting nails, which fray at the edges. As a consequence, the nails may break and become more fragile, and can easily catch on clothing.
What can you do?
Lack of moisture is a lead cause for dry and brittle nails. So try to keep your hands, and especially nails moisturized to safeguard your nails from peeling, breaking, and splitting. You can speak to your specialist about the right kind of moisturizer, something that suits your skin and nails.
A solution would be to apply either almond or coconut oil to your cuticles and massage gently to nourish them.
