3. Use Lotion to Moisturize Your Nails
You can use lotion to moisturize your nails and make them softer and more pliable – which makes them less likely to break. There are lots of different choices out there when it comes to lotions that you can use, but when it comes to nails, you really want the lotion to get down deep inside, so you want to use thick oil or lotion. You also want to dab a little bit on your thumb or finger and rub it into the nail completely.
Don’t just spend a couple seconds rubbing it in; make sure that you’re getting it way down deep into the nail itself and all the way around it. You should also moisturize your cuticles the same way. This will go a long way towards treating your nail ridges.
