How do you make your nails more healthy?

My friend asked me this, and I had no idea. Any good, easy suggestions?

Try not to paint them and use nail polish remover or fake nails. Eat a well-balanced diet, and I have heard that biotin or something helps them grow faster, and eating gelatin makes them stronger.

Gelatin, like 'Jello' has always been shown to promote healthy nail growth.

You can't make them healthier. Nails and hair are the dead cells of your body. The only thing I could really think of would be to take care of your body better in the shower?

It may sound weird, I've never tried it, but you could try taking prenatal pills. All those nutrients or whatever is in there will go to you. Your hair and nails are made of keratin, so you could also try taking over-the-counter pills or something that include keratin.

Not biting them, and drinking or eating dairy products helps. And certain vitamins (although I haven't taken any).

Healthy nails need protein, so you can consume healthy food which gives you protein.

Apply almond oil to the cuticles and underneath the nails every day. Avoid chemicals like acrylic and primer. Use non acetone nail polish remover.
