Chipping nails
I have a serios problem of chipping nails mostly at the tips on all ten fingers. I had this problem for four years now I have tried most of the tissue oils but to no avail. I' m 35 yrs old (woman).

Been to the Dematologist who prescribed vitaforce but I have not notice any change, have been taking it for six months.

Before this i used to have beautiful and strong natural nails.

Your assistance please.

Dear Type
Chipping nails are often caused by working in water, physical trauma to the nails, low proteien diets or underlying disease. It may help to take a multivitamin like Nu-nail, using nail cuticle oil daily, using gloves when your work in water or detergent or putting a layer of acrylic over your nail to protect them.
