DIY | Stop Biting Your Nails FOREVER! - simplekidscrafts. Stop Biting Your Nails FOREVER! I was asked to talk about how I stopped biting my nails, and the truth is that nail biting is a bad habit that sometimes is very painful to admit, especially for me. But it is something that can be overcome at any age. I stopped biting my nails, mainly because I saw my youngest son who is 3 years old, biting his own nail after seeing me biting mine.
TIP # 1- Change your mentality
As an adult I decided I should change the way I think about nail biting and see it as what it is, a bad habit, Every day I tell myself Merve you can do it ... do it for yourself and for your son.
TIP # 2 - one day at a time
Biting your nails is not something you can stop all at once, so I decided to keep one of my nails just for the purpose of biting it and leaving the rest to grow. After I started to see all my nails grow I became very happy and decided to let all of them grow.
TIP # 3 - Use a specialized nail polish
After changing the way I thought about nail biting and leaving one of my nails to be the one nail I would bite from time to time… I decided to take it further, so I started searching online for something that physically would remind me that I should not bite my nails. I wanted to protect the ones that I began to grow and I found a nail polish that I applied to my son twice a day and to myself for about 10 days, This nail polish goes away with water or nail polish remover and it tastes so awful that It immediately brings you back to reality if you bite your biting your nail by mistake.
TIP # 4 - change you way of eating
I started to eat healthier foods and things that encourage the growth of my nails
I started to eat more green vegetables, spinach, broccoli, carrots, olive oil, fish, eggs and dairy products and have seen a change in not only my nails, but also my hair and skin
Tip # 5 - Take vitamins that promote the growth of your nails
I take a multivitamin and also take vitamin B-12 and folic acid
And my last Super tip Take good care of your nails
I Can’t really wear nail polish on a daily basis because I am a practicing Muslim, (Muslims have to take wudu 5 times a day before praying, it is a ritual of purification where you have to wash your hands, arms, face, mouth, nose, neck, ears, and feet before praying and these parts of the body must touch water, nail polish does not allow water to go through and then have to paint me remove my nail 5 times a day would be kind of crazy for me. I do know there are water permeable nail polish, but really it does not make sense to me to spend my time in this way) but I do want to protect my nails, so I apply clear nail polish at night and remove it in the morning, if you are able to wear nail polish for a longer period of time I recommend that you do as this protects your nails against accidental breakage. Also buy a nail care kit and always carry it in your purse, that way if a nail breaks you can repair it quickly before the temptation to bite it sets in.
