Imagine if you could see the dirt and grime that accumulates under your fingernails when you bite your nails. It's not a pretty sight. And it's not just gross, it's also dangerous.
A video shows the graphic details of dirt and grime accumulated under the nails of nail biters.
The clip is meant to serve as a warning to nail biters as it highlights potential health risks associated with this habit.
The video shows that nail-biting can create small breaks in the skin, which can allow bacteria and other germs to enter the body.
This can lead to infections, which can be especially dangerous for people with weakened immune systems.
Nail-biting can also damage the teeth and gums.
When someone bites their nails, they are putting pressure on their teeth, which can lead to chipping, cracking, and even tooth loss.
The habit can also damage the gums, which can lead to recession and gum disease.
If you're a nail biter, please break the habit. It's not just a bad habit, it's also a serious health risk.
Here are some tips to help you break the habit of nail-biting:
- Identify your triggers and avoid them. What are the things that make you want to bite your nails? Once you know what your triggers are, you can start to avoid them.
- Keep your nails short and well-groomed. This will make them less appealing to bite.
- Apply a bitter-tasting nail polish to your nails. This will make them taste bad, which will discourage you from biting them.
- Find other ways to relieve stress and anxiety. If you bite your nails when you're feeling stressed or anxious, find other ways to relieve these emotions, such as exercise, meditation, or journaling.
