Recently, like within the last 2 months or so, I’ve notice my nails have been flaking pretty badly. I have to keep them cut really short when previously, I’ve always had pretty nice nails. They’ve never been really strong, but I can’t remember them being soooo darn prone to flaking ever before!
I haven’t really changed my diet recently… well, no, I’ve been eating healthier, less fat and more well balanced. I don’t spend a lot of time washing dishes or anything (it’s the kids’ chore 4 days out of the week), I haven’t taken up any new hobbies that would affect my hands, and I don’t feel sick or anything.
I’ve started taking prenatal vitamins (I’m NOT pregnant, just taking them for the vitamins) within the last week and I’m trying to use a hand and nail cream on my hands everyday. I’m also using gloves now whenever I do have to do dishes or other cleaning.
Any of you smarty-pants have any idea why my nails would suddenly start being so cranky and hard to deal with? They look so icky!
