Our body is connected in more ways than we think. In fact, the appearance of your nails and their strength can indicate a lot about your body’s overall health status. Likewise, the way we treat our body and our lifestyle can have a direct effect on our nails. From the food we eat to the products we choose to expose ourselves to, they can all have an effect on our nails.
Your nails should look and feel healthy, what does that mean? It means your nails should be strong, not brittle – they shouldn’t break off easily or bend. Your nails shouldn’t have discoloration or spots because that would be indicative of health issues. To keep your nails healthy you should consume foods rich in biotin and protein.
Additionally, drinking water and applying hand lotion helps keep your nails hydrated from the inside and out. Consider moisturizing your hands (especially your nails) after washing your hands or removing nail polish to keep the moisture in your nails. An overlooked aspect is that we should keep our hands and nails away from cleaning products since they often contain harmful chemicals. Wearing a rubber glove can help you avoid any potential damage to your nail while cleaning.
We all want to have healthy nails that look good and for the times when we want to look extra cute, applying nail polish is our go-to. To make sure you are maintaining the health of your nails and avoiding any harmful ingredients, you should consider vegan nail polish. This means the polish is made without any animal-derived ingredients, this includes the production process as well as the formula itself.
Regular nail polishes often contain animal ingredients like fish scales and beeswax, while vegan polishes only use natural or manmade substances. Choosing vegan nail polish is an environmentally conscious and sustainable decision for your health as well as for nature. You are choosing to apply only natural products to your body keeping it chemical-free and you are actively reducing the harm inflicted on animals by supporting the alternative options.
While some might think vegan nail polish is a new fad that will die down, we are here to say that it should be a staple. We should always choose the natural alternative options, even when it comes to nail polish!
At Elluna, we always look for brands that follow our ethics and sustainable approach. So, when searching for nail polishes we partnered with Nailberry. It is certified by world-recognized agencies and strives to deliver products that observe not only our core values but the principles of the Vegan lifestyle and complies with the Halal & Hygiene Guidelines. All the while respecting & valuing the lives of our animal friends.
