Spa treatments are a great way to pamper yourself. Frequently indulging in these treatments may also result in reduced levels of anxiety. A manicure is just one of these pampering treatments that help you to feel good, look good, and may even help keep you from nail biting.
Proper nail health is important to prevent infection and to keep hands looking and feeling their best. Nail biters have an increased risk of infection both externally and internally. Hands can get pretty germy, and these harmful organisms love to hide out underneath the fingernails where they are hard to clean. Nail biting causes these germs to be swallowed, promoting illness and disease. Open wounds on the fingers can lead to infections as well.
Frequent manicures are important for nail health by keeping hands and nails clean and free from sharp or ragged edges that are just an increased temptation for nail biters. Frequent pampering can also reduce anxiety levels which may decrease the nervous biting. Plus, why spend all that money to have your hands and nails cared for just to make it look bad from biting your freshly polished nails? Bitten down nails are much more obvious when nails have been polished.
When getting a manicure, nail biting may also be prevented with the use of artificial nails. They may be more difficult to bite, it is easier to notice when one or more nails have been bitten off, and the price for replacement can be quite expensive over and over again.
Get and keep great looking nails by having frequent manicures. Your hands, nails, and health will thank you for it.
