What Your Nails say about your Health

What Your Nails say about your Health

A touch of white here, a rosy tinge there, or some rippling or bumps may be a sign of something more serious going on in your body.

Your nails are the gateway to understanding how your health is doing. We all love to have beautiful nails and pamper ourselves with special manicures.

But before you book a manicure, let’s take a look at some signs your nails are giving you.

Pale Nails - Very pale nails can sometimes be a sign of anemia, congestive heart disease, liver disease or malnutrition.

Yellow Nails - One of the most common causes of yellow nails is a fungal infection. As the infection worsens, the nail bed may retract, and nails may thicken and crumble.

Yellow Nails

Rippled Nails - If the nail surface is rippled or pitted, this may be an early sign of psoriasis or inflammatory arthritis. Discoloration of the nail is common; the skin under the nail can seem reddish-brown.

Rippled Nails

Cracked or Split Nails - Dry, brittle nails that frequently crack or split have been linked to thyroid disease. Cracking or splitting combined with a yellowish hue is more likely due to a fungal infection.

Gnawed Nails - Biting your nails may be nothing more than an old habit, but in some cases it's a sign of persistent anxiety that could benefit from treatment.

Not to Worry you can still look fabulous!

Whether you see any of the above signs or none, we all love to have a manicure and show off our beautiful nails. Waters Edge Spa and Salon offers a treatment that helps maintain optimal skin health through regular hydration, nourishment, and protection - Perfect Sense Paraffin Treatment
