The first thing we can all do in having good-looking hands is to keep them clean by washing regularly. It’s amazing how many people (guys especially, but some women and girls too) walk around with grubby non manicured finger nails. Get a nail brush and put it by the sink, so it’s convenient whenever you wash your hands. An added plus of a nail brushing your fingers is the way it feels: those soft bristles and the luxurious soapy lather take your hands on a daily very mini spa vacation. Always follow up with a nice hand cream or lotion to keep your hands moisturized.
Stop Nail Biting Habit Amazing Tips

Chewing Gum:
Chewing gum or sucking on mints. The meaning of this is to keep your mouth busy so you won’t bite on your fingers. It is a good exercise for teeth and also protects you from biting your nails.

Vanilla Extract:
Dip you fingers in vanilla extract. Due to the fact that this has alcohol in it you won’t be putting it in your mouth.
Mostly the habit of nail-biting often starts in childhood, and can be a very hard habit to break. It is said that the calmest way to stop biting your nails is to become more relaxed, as nail-biting is often related with pressure and nervousness.

Habits Develop in Childhood

Beautiful hands and nail care start with basics, and not having raggy, bleeding cuticles is a primary step in having presentable hands. Granted, one of the hardest habits to break is to stop fingernail biting, but it’s also one of the more disfiguring things that can happen to a hand. We all know someone who bites their nails to the quick, then starts on those ragged cuticles. Nail-biting usually starts in early childhood as a toddler with some people never outgrowing it, while others only revert to nail-biting in times of stress. 

Practical Tips 

I know a New York woman who stopped biting her nails when she was eighteen, because she wanted to be a flight attendant, and she had read in one of those “How to Be a Flight Attendant” guides, that bitten nails would keep her from being accepted into “Smile School”. (It was a long time ago, when airlines also had age limitations for stewardesses.) I admired her greatly as she stopped through sheer willpower.
At first, she went retro and wore gloves a lot. She also started carrying a nail file in her purse so that when a nail got split or roughened, she could take care of it on the spot. She wore gloves because taking off a glove to bite a nail is a great way to make yourself pause and consider, and then stop the behavior before it starts. She never did become a flight attendant, but she did have her hands photographed for a newspaper ad for the Chicago manicure and nail salon that she frequented and once more a few years later for a Los Angeles nail care and manicure salon.

Easy Tips

Nail biting is annoying and a very hard to break habit which affects many people of all ages. Obvious most people would find it repulsive to find a person biting his or her fingernails. But unfortunately in both children and adults, nail biting is seen and this is a habit which is difficult to get rid off.

What cause the nail biting habit?

There are many factors causing the problem such as follows:

  • Insecurity
  • Nervousness
  • Boredom
  • Anxiety or
  • Excitement

Bad Impression to others
Weak nails
Damaged fingers caused by chewing the nail down to the sensitive skin beneath the nail.

Home remedies 

Rub anything that tastes bitter or pungent in your nails frequently. You can use bitter gourd juice, or lemon juice or hot pepper sauce. Such non-toxic bitter, sour or spicy substances will stop you from biting your nails. But always be careful. Do not rub your eyes by mistake.

When at home, wear cotton gloves. That way, you can’t get at your nails.

Tape an adhesive bandage around the tip of each finger. This is helpful in stopping nail biting.
Keep a clipper or a filer closeby. Whenever you have the urge to bite nails, use the clipper or filer to trim and give it a smooth edge.

Keep your hands busy by painting, sewing, knitting, writing, playing games, etc. so that there is no urge of nail niting.

If your nail is brittle and gives way to rough edge, then make it a habit to dip your nails in warm olive oil for about half an hour everyday. This will help in strengthening your nails.

Keep your mind away from the thought of biting nails. Some people say that chewing gum helps as it will keep your mouth occupied all the while and keep your mind distracted.

If all else fails then it is better to cut your nails to a minimal. This will automatically stop biting them as there will be nothing there to bite.

Finally, for nail-biters and non-nail-biters alike, hand cream right before bed is a great way to keep your skin smooth. When things are looking rough (or if you’re a biter who’s trying to quit), you can get some wonderfully thin cotton gloves, slather on a hand cream like Sephora’s Bliss Glamour Glove Gel and glove up until morning. The cotton will keep the hand cream off the pillows and on your hands where it belongs. And for a real spa-treatment, get some little cotton socks and give your feet the same experience.
