Growth of Nails

Fingernails and toenails grow from a point, which is near the root below the skin. It is at the base of the nail where nail is very thin. Fingernails are produced by the living skin cells in the finger. Fingernails are another type of skin. All nails are not created equal. The average growth of fingernails and toenails is two inches per year and an average adult2019s growth of nails is one inch over the course of eight months.


Nails may be small but they play an important role to secure the finger. It protects as well as improves the dexterity of finger. A person calls to be healthy if he/she has healthy nails. A nail is made up of laminated layers of protein and is called keratin. Keratin is also found in hair and skin. Nails have several parts and that are mentioned below.


Nail plate- The nail plate is the most visible part of nail. It is hard portion of fingernails that is visible to you.


Nail folds- The skin that frames each of your nail plates on three sides is called the nail fold.


Nail bed- Nail bed is the skin beneath the nail plate. Cells at the base of your nail bed produce the fingernail or toenail plate.


Cuticle- A cuticle is the tissue that overlaps your nail plate at the base of your nail. It also protects the new keratin cells that slowly emerge from the nail bed.


Lunula- The lunula is the whitish, half-moon shape, which lies at the base of your nail underneath the plate.


To get healthy and beautiful nails is not easy. So, you should take care your nails and if you want your nails grow faster. You should shape your nails from the outside edge toward the middle, moving the emery board in one direction only rather than sawing it back and forth, which damages the nail. Try to manicure regularly as soaking nails in warm, soapy water before pushing cuticles back makes for less scraping on the nail bed.
