2. Treat Them Gently
If you have a job where you are outside working with your hands, you may be damaging your fingernails. Instead of quitting your job or giving up gardening, always wear gloves whenever you can. If you don’t have a job that directly affects your hands on a regular basis, that’s no reason to slack off. Always treat your nails gently. Don’t use them to open up cans or scrape dirt and debris from surfaces.
