My husband is deployed overseas right now, so i stay nervous and stressed constantly, but he's coming home in about 25 days and i want my nails to look really good, my cuticles, and the skin around my nails look awful because i bite them without even realizing it, if i stop biting them, will they look at least normal again by the time he comes home? It's no doubt that i'll stop biting them, i'm just trying to find out how long it will take for them to heal completely, so i don't really need advice on stopping myself from biting them, just advice on the healing process i guess u would call it that. ThanksMy nails and cuticles look really bad from biting them, if i stop, how long will it be before they heal?
They will start to heal right away, you should see the difference in about a week.My nails and cuticles look really bad from biting them, if i stop, how long will it be before they heal?
You should be fine. It usually takes a couple weeks. Try getting some cuticle cream too. It'll moisturize the cuticles and help them to heal faster. Burt's Beeswax makes some good stuff. If they are bitten to the point of bleeding or cracking, use some vacitracin to help sanitize and heal. Best o' luck
A lot less time than if you keep chewing your fingers until they get horrifically infected and you have to have to first joint of each of your fingers amputated giving you the appearance of a decawed cat. Wear little white gloves. People will find it alluring and you will find it less flavorful.
yeah..they should be much better by then. If you can, get a manicure. They can help you clean up your fingers so they look good. I do the same thing when I am stressed and a manicure always makes them look brand new. I would also buy some cotton gloves to wear during the day and then put some lotion on your hands and wear them at night while you sleep. They will moisturize your hands while you sleep and keep you from biting during the day. A manicure might also help too because you'll have polish on, and it's not fun to bite with polish.
Well try to stop the biting and file them down and then soak your finger tips in water then put a coat of nail strengthenr on them and repeat once a week,
(and the water makes the nails grow faster)
it'll take a few weeks! good luck.
