Help! My nails are just snapping off! I went grocery shopping and came home with two broken nails. What's happening to my nails?
Your nails are probably dry and brittle from the dry winter air. Outside the air is dry with low humidity and inside the air is dry with low humidity from the heater. This lack of humidity will cause the nails and skin to become dehydrated.
Too much water exposure is the enemy for nails. It will make the nails flatten when wet then curl when dry causing the nails to become brittle. Wear waterproof gloves to protect your nails (and hands too!) from exposure to water when cleaning or doing dishes.
Wear warm winter gloves when you are outside.
