10 Cogent Measures to Prevent Nail Ridges
Jul. 28, 2020
Ridges – the stains on hands beauty, and these can reveal a lot of information about food intake and lifestyle of a person. The range of logical information could be perceived, from stress to other medical problems, like lungs, kidney infection, or disorder or maybe thyroid issues.
So, one of these could be the most likely root cause of your nail ridges whether its vertical or horizontal.
It is medically declared that Vertical ridges appear due to aging. Like wrinkles on the other body parts, people can have it on nails too. The production of natural oil slows down in your body as you grow old. Subsequently, moisturizing deficiency causes ridges to form (in the form of eczema or psoriasis painful conditions). This dryness affect your skin and hair too.
Horizontal nail ridges are not much common but truly acute. According to most experts, if these occur on one of the nails, then has possibly appeared due to trauma. It starts from the nail matric (the exact place from where nails start to grow). When any heavy object falls on the nail or the finger gets caught in the door then these horizontal ridges are bound to appear.
So here are some home treatments to get rid of ridges in nails.
Avoid ridges by using nails strengthening foods:
1. Nails are made up of protein, so the body needs enough intake of proteins to help in building a strong body. Taking proteins from chicken and beef meat can empower your nails.
2. Moreover, (seemingly delicious) fruits with antioxidants properties, particularly blueberries – which feature the highest antioxidants, can help to encounter the radical damages which inflame stress hormones in the body. And this impacts all cells in the body including cells of hairs and nails. Besides, strawberries, kiwis which contain vitamin C, can help the production of collagen, which makes nails naturally more resilient.
3. To keep nails strong and protected, vegetables can be a great source of vitamins, therefore, one should drag bell peppers along with some tomatoes and spinach in a bowl of salad, and eat it calmly. This practice can give a boost to the collagen level. Whereas, potatoes and carrots which have vitamin A, are good to have for the sake of antioxidants.
4. A hefty dose of powerful and healthy fats can feed nails with needed food to make them healthier. For instance, most registered dietitians, vividly speak about the importance of taking almonds and nuts – as they are full of protein and magnesium. So if you are having vertical ridges, then these dry fruits can do your great to revive ridge nails.
5. Milk - is loaded with calcium and vitamin D which are key to grow healthy nails.
6. Vitamin D – the protein content of Eggs, in whatever cooked shape. They are a powerhouse of nutrients because these contain B12, Vitamin A and E, Iron, the most significant one is – Biotin. The use of Vitamin D gives impressive results, by giving thickness to nails and gradually eliminating ridges, splits and brittleness of nails.
Other possible measures to wipe out nail ridges:
7. Keep your hands hydrated with ointments.
Donna Hart, MD, board-certified dermatologist in Texas strongly suggests to apply ointments (which features ceramides, or Alpha hydroxyl acids) to moisturize your hands, she suggests using oil and cream on hands to keep them hydrated because ridges appear normally due to dehydration.
8. First, get treatment for any underlying disease.
Nails ridges often get their home in nails due to other underlying health issues, like the problem in the lungs or kidneys. For example, most diabetes patients experience ridges, especially in the vertical direction.
9. Keep your nails clean.
Clipping your nails is very important to prevent nail traumas, but do not overdo it. Using a quality clipper, trim nails when there is visible white and do not go too low to trim white area completely.
10. Limit your water exposure.
Use water only to the extent of your serious need because washing your hands too often can eliminate the natural oil or even it can cause eczema, which is a serious condition of ridges.
The ridges in nails can mean underlying health issues such as deficiencies and diabetes. It should be taken as a warning from the body. In such situations, it is recommended to run the home remedies to improve nail health. If the condition doesn’t change significantly then a visit to the dermatologist is suggested.

A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream 💗💗💗 @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Black Owned Makeup Look
So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
