What are damaged fingernails?

A healthy nail is smooth, transparent and adherent to the nail bed. Instead, signs of a damaged nail can include opaqueness, flakiness, thickness and, in some cases, detachment from the nail bed. Such symptoms create, among other difficulties, considerable aesthetic discomfort. Damaged nails can occur frequently as the hands are exposed to many different factors that can cause damage, including:

  • Trauma
  • Poor blood circulation
  • Fungal infection
  • Inflammatory diseases
  • Beauty treatments

What are the causes of damaged fingernails?

The main causes can be:

Gel reconstruction is a common cause of nail damage today. Following the gel removal process, the nail is often opaque and brittle.

The most common disease affecting the nail is psoriasis, which causes the dystrophy and fragmentation of the nail lamina. Psoriasis causes the nail to appear dull yellow and thick, but it can also cause the nail to crumble or detach completely.

While fungal nail infections are rare, they cause the digestion of the nail plate.

How to treat damaged nails

Apply 2S Cream to the affected area. 2S Cream is enriched with sulfur and salicylic acid, which protects damaged nails by blocking fungus and bacteria. It also rebuilds the nail by shedding any psoriatic flakes.

  • Avoid aggressive manicure and pedicures to allow the growth of cuticles to protect the nail.
  • Avoid using nail varnish continuously, by giving the nails a break between applications.
  • Avoid frequent nail reconstruction treatments

Nails are made up of keratin with sulfur bridges. Many scientific studies suggest that vitamin deficiencies do not necessarily link to the health of the nails. Individuals who have vitamin deficiencies showed other health problems, but did not have damaged nails. There is also no direct correlation with damaged nails and calcium deficiency.
