Why do I have vertical ridges on my nails?

Vertical ridges are furrows that run from the cuticle to the tip of the nail. Many people develop vertical ridges on their nails as they get older. These lines are not dangerous.

As the nails age, their capacity to absorb nutrients diminish resulting in lack of moisture and affects nail growth.

Always moisturise after washing hands to keep skin and nails hydrated.

If your nails begin to split vertically, simply keep your nails short and the free edge smooth to prevent snagging.

IBX Nail Repair treatment is recommended to help with splits and to repair and strengthen damaged nails.

If you are concerned about your nails, contact your GP for a diagnosis.
