Easy, simple nail care tips can be found on pages 171, 180, and 181 of Cooking Your Way To Gorgeous. According to Borba, massaging finger nails, cuticles, nail corners, and nail beds with a common cooking oil will promote healthy nails and release tension. It should work for toenails too. Borba writes, "Nail ridges may indicate a lack of protein, iron, or calcium." He goes on to suggest foods that contain a compound beneficial to nails. He also includes a suggested remedy for fingernails that flake or peel easily.
