Over the years I cannot tell you how many times a client has come to me, in the summertime, and mentioned how their nails are growing so fast!
They aren’t imagining things. Their nails really are growing faster and stronger. The first reason may seem like an obvious one but I’m sure the second will surprise you!
Why do my nails grow so fast in the summer? Let’s get into it!
This is the one that I thought may be a little more obvious to some. Our nails definitely grow more in the summer due to the sunshine. I mean doesn’t everything grow more in the sun? We are no different.
The science behind it isn’t that complicated either. We absorb more Vitamin D in the summertime. The more we absorb the more we produce. This production can be seen in our hair and our nails.
Typically, people that live in warmer climates will often have very strong and healthy nails.
We know that Vitamin D plays a huge role in our mood. Usually the reason people get the winter blues is because of the lack of sunlight or Vitamin D. Sadly, I feel our nails will get a little “depressed” this time of year also.
Another great reason to go on a tropical holiday!!
Cheers to the Beers:
This is our happy surprise!!
Not only are we laying out in the sun a lot more, but there is something to be said for an ice-cold, long neck in the heat of summer.
And chances are we aren’t just having one beer. Lol at least I know I’m having more than one 😉
So what is in beer that is giving us the boost? Scientists have found that beer contains a mineral that can actually grow bone! The mineral is called Silicon. Since barley is full of this mineral it was safe to assume that beer could also in fact help to grow bone.
The National Institute of Health has done the studies and proven this to be true! A moderate amount of beer has more than enough Silicon to build bone but, also tissue. Tissue that is found in our skin hair and in our NAILS!!
But alas, you don’t have to drink beer to have stronger, longer nails. Conveniently, you can find Silicon (or Silica which is just Silicon that is bound to oxygen) at just about any health food store.
Not like we need any more reason to love the summer and the sunshine, but now we know that it benefits our nails too!
Why do my nails grow so fast in the summer? It’s all that beer girlfriend!!
