We paint our nails, cover them in acrylic, and change up the polish as often as possible to make them look pretty. Even for those who don’t decorate their nails in the name of beauty, it’s common to encounter some "nail problems". Nails can become brittle, crack, discolor from fungus, and more. We may be better equipped to deal with these issues if we remember that, although nails are “dead”, they are made by a very living body. So it is time to stop looking at your nails like an inert canvas that you can decorate as you wish.
The “dead” cells that make up the nail are a product of a continuous process and the nail bed requires nutrition to make them. Nails, like hair, are a modified type of epidermis made of closely compacted layers of flattened, dead, keratinized epithelial cells. The nail plate emerges from the matrix, the thick, highly proliferative tissue at the root of the nail. Even the cuticle is alive!
When we forget to protect the nail and/or we are unlucky, the weakened nail will provide a good environment for nail fungus. This is a common problem but difficult to treat. Antifungals taken orally can lead to serious side effects because fungi are eukaryotes just like we are.
Some pathogens that infect nails include Candida and non dermatophytic molds, in particular Neoscytalidium, Scopulariopsis, and Aspergillus. Candida mainly causes fingernail onychomycosis in people whose hands are often submerged in water. Other species are opportunistic molds that affect people older than 60 years, and their presence in the nail reflects a weakening in the nail's ability to defend itself against fungal invasion.
The aim of our Nail Duo is to provide nutrition to increase the capacity of the nail tissue to protect itself from damage.
What makes our Nail Care Serum essential to nail health? It provides nutrition to the specialized skin tissue of the nails. Just like older skin can become "starved" of nutrients, nails can be too. Providing nutrition to older or damaged nails with these serums will help compensate for some of that loss of nutrition.
