How to Repair Damaged Nails

Having damaged nails can really bring your mood down, not only because of how they look but because they may prevent you from doing the simplest of tasks, such as untying a knot. Numerous factors can cause damage to your nails including natural causes and everyday activities you may carry out while unknowingly contributing to damaged nails.

Whilst there are ways to prevent so much damage in the future, an immediate solution to repair your nails is best. At Daline Nails, our Magic Pen Repair & Growth Nail Cream provides a quick and easy way to treat your nails until their original lustre is returned.   

Why are healthy nails important?

Primarily, your nails are there to protect the delicate beds at the ends of your fingers and toes. But having healthy fingernails, in particular, also helps with ordinary, everyday tasks, such as picking things up, peeling labels, scratching as well as separating pages. Not only that, but healthy nails look attractive too.

What can cause damage to your nails?

Your nails can become damaged very easily, whether by medical conditions or the way you go about your daily routine. Some of the many issues you can suffer from include:

  •         Split nails
  •         Discoloured nails
  •         Brittle nails
  •         Bacterial or fungal infections
  •         Injury to the nails

Medically, you may suffer from conditions such as poor circulation, infections, psoriasis and injuries. Whilst these need to be professionally treated, your nails can be given a helpful hand using our Magic Pen to escalate their repair and increase their strength. Your daily routine may play a huge part in having damaged nails and we’ve detailed some of the everyday causes for poor nail health below.

Everyday causes

Without meaning to, your daily habits may be negatively affecting the health of your nails. We’ve listed some of the main causes below but don’t despair — damage caused by any of these can be helped by using our Magic Pen.


Continually biting your nails leads them to look very unsightly. They can have jagged edges and end up so short that they can cause significant damage to your nail beds.

Washing-up by hand

Unless you wear washing-up gloves to protect your hands, continually washing up in hot water and using detergent can damage your nails. The water swells your nails, which damages the nail beds, and the detergent dries your nails out.

Rigorous work

You may carry out activities that are rigorous on your hands either for work or as a hobby, such as gardening. Without wearing protective gloves, abrasive substances can cause your nails to break easily. Simple tasks like removing staples from paper can cause your nails to rip too.

Picking off your nail polish

Whilst this can be very tempting, picking the polish from your nails actually damages their top layer. Once this protective layer becomes damaged, your nails can become cracked.

Having nails that are too long

Long nails can look very attractive but if you allow your nails to grow too long, they are more prone to damage. The length puts stress on the nail beds and can lead to your nails breaking. Should a nail snag on something and tear down to the nail bed, it can be extremely painful.

Having a poor diet

A poor diet negatively impacts the health of your nails. To ensure your nails stay healthy and strong, you need to eat foods that are rich in biotins, such as eggs and bananas, and omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish, flaxseed oil and walnuts.

Repair your nails with our Magic Pen

To help restore your confidence and make you feel good about your nails, we have created the Magic Pen Repair & Growth Nail Cream. This all-natural cream has been specially formulated to increase the strength of your nails and help them to grow. It keeps your nails moisturized and works hard at repairing the damage caused to them.
