Apparently in our old(er) age we now have to worry about our nails curving, too! Not exactly sure what it is, but it doesn’t sound good, ladies.
Well, crap, there is just nothing good about this aging process. Mine haven’t started to curve yet, thank goodness, but my friend, Carlene told me about it. She also talked about extra growth, I don’t know what that is either, but I sure as h*ll don’t want it! Here’s what she said in her email:
"My manicurist told me to use Vicks Salve around the beds and under my nails to stop the curving and extra growth that sometimes happens...said she learned that in the nursing homes where she does clients nails...worked for me, too."
So, I guess I’ll be doing a little preventive maintenance and maybe I can stave off the dreaded curve. I have noticed as I age my nail bed has developed vertical ridges. I remember Daddy’s nails looking like that, so apparently it’s a genetic trait.
Well, this was just a fun post, wasn’t it. Especially love the reference to the nursing homes. *sigh*
But quick, grab the VapoRub, put it by your bed and massage your hands with it. Boy Howdy won’t you smell good!
Seriously, thanks for the tip, Carlene, she also gave me another goodie, I’ll post that later. ~ Jan
