Not only are nails a beauty statement--especially for women--but they also tell a lot about a person's overall health. If your nails are covered in unsightly, unhealthy ridges, you can take measures to heal your fingernails for better appearance and improved health.

Protecting your nails prevents further damage from occurring. Wait for your nails to grow out. Sometimes the only cure is time. In the meantime, coat your nails with a clear, protective polish to strengthen them while you wait for the ridges to disappear. Buff your nails with an emery board.
