  • Peeling Brittle Nails
  • Peeling brittle nails

    Many of my patients ask me about how they should treat splitting, peeling and ridges on their nails. So here is some information on how to deal with these conditions. I will be honest with you, I suffer from some of these as well thanks to getting shellac and other gel nail polish in the past.

    Also I am  washing my hands constantly between patients sometimes more than 20 times a day! So you can imagine, even if I had the strongest nails, they would be bound to break and peel after so many hand washing.

     

    Ok, back to the conditions of splitting, peeling and ridges.

    All of these  can be due to lack of vitamins, systemic disease or trauma ( manual labor, rough manicures, typing). So when your nail is damaged, one thing you can’t do is repair the damaged portion!!

    I know this sounds wrong but the fact is that once your nail is damaged you have to wait until the damaged portion grows out. Meanwhile you need to support and protect it while it is growing out.

    This is no different than damaged hair from getting coloring or straightening with harsh chemicals.

     

    So when a  cosmetic company claims that they can repair your nails with their treatment lacquers

    “Lord knows that there are so many of them in the market”

    They are misinforming the consumer. As a matter of fact most of these treatments contain chemicals like Formaldehyde which initially hardens the nail but with time it permanently can break the nail down, making it more brittle.

     

    What to do:

    Figure out the cause first.

    Then use products that are good for your nails and are not going to permanently damage them

    “Avoid ingredients like Formaldehyde or Toluene in a nail treatments”

    and allow your nails to grow back to their healthy look and don’t forget to moisturize your nails, after all they are extensions of your skin made out of keratin!

    Big toe nails hurt?  Make sure your nails are trimmed properly. Not too short ( you get ingrown) and not too long ( it hits the front of the shoe).

    Also make sure your shoes have enough room in the toe area ( toe box). Not only it should fit the width of your toes, it should also have enough room vertically. With all this being said and done, if you are still having pain, then you should see your doctor.

    Hope this helps.

  • Athlete’s Foot

     

    Pardis A. Kelly, D.P.M.    Athlete’s foot is one of the most common conditions I see in my office. Interestingly, some of my patients don’t even know that they have athlete’s foot until I point it out to them.  Sometimes, they say, oh this is just dry skin, I had it for many years. Or they might even say, how could it be fungus if it doesn’t itch.

          So here is something to remember. There is no such thing as just dry skin.There is always a reason for it.  It is important to not mistake athlete’s foot for other conditions such as eczema, psoriasis.  Once that has been established then it can be treated appropriately.

    Over the counter topical creams and sprays are a great start but not always effective. Sometimes you are going to need something stronger and that needs to be prescribed by your doctor in form of a cream or in some severe cases, a short course of pills. It is also extremely important to prevent recurrence by keeping your feet dry and avoid walking barefoot in public areas.

    We have developed a simple yet useful remedy for this age old condition and it’s something you most likely already use. Nail Polish. We know women and men work hard to keep their nails beautiful. That’s why you should consider switching to a nail polish that does more than “look pretty”.  PS Polish has a very large selection of different colors of nail polishes and we think you will love them just as much, if not more than your current nail polish.

    Every day we blend our professional experience with our personal quest to exceed your expectations and develop products for you with the highest quality, value and purpose on the planet today.

    As women in the business, we also love our career that allows us to offer you a healthier choice in nail products … with colors that were inspired by nature.

    PS Polish can be purchased from our site, or if you’re local to the area you can visit our shop.

    • In my twenties I would be skeptical of a bad haircut, but once you turn thirty it's more about whether he a nice person and does he open the door for me.

    • “I was one of the first clients using PS polish ridge fillers and nail hardener. When I am in a rush I use these products by themselves for a natural look otherwise under a nail polish as a foundation. It addition to its smooth application, PS polish is very quick drying and has a great shine.”

    • “I have used the PSPolish for a little over six weeks and my results have been so positive. My nails are stronger, have stopped splitting, and grow rapidly. My cuticles are healthier and the many colors offered make a unique finish when using one color then applying another over the first. Doing this gives the user many options for personalized color. I would give this polish a 10+. It’s the best.”
