CBD is bringing so many lifestyle benefits to so many people, and we are discovering new perks from our customers all the time…Today we are exploring whether CBD has a role in keeping your nails healthy.
Why CBD Can Help You Keep Your Nails Healthy
Your nails look like an insignificant part of you, but they can tell us a lot. It can be upsetting when we have stubbornly dry or brittle skin, hair and nails. It can affect how we see ourselves and reduce our confidence, and aside from this - our nails can tell us about our general wellbeing.
There is a lot of research still underway into the therapeutic benefits of CBD. However, many of the advantages we do know about suggest that our hair and nails can certainly benefit.
CBD is a very potent health product containing fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. CBD also has a significant quantity of omegas. These nutrients and substances play various roles in keeping your nails healthy. Flaking and nail splinting are quite common when there is nail dryness, particularly if you have a ‘hands-on’ lifestyle. Fatty acids and omegas can keep your nails moisturised and take away the brittleness, leaving you with healthy, attractive, and strong nails.
CBD also has antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties that can come in handy with infections around the nails. The toenails and feet are especially prone to infection thanks to the excess moisture and warmth from wearing socks and shoes for too long. It might take a while for these infections to become noticeable but using CBD for healthy nails might help to prevent them.
Some manicure and pedicure services add CBD to their hand and footcare regimes. By gently massaging your hands and feet, they improve blood flow to your extremities. This also contributes to keeping your nails healthy as they have better access to the nutrients in the blood.
