There are tons of home remedies and treatments for nail biting out there, so I have complied al list of products and ideas that got good reviews and may consider myself.
*Vitamin B Inositol can be used as a cure for nail biting. However, this remedy is used only when the reason of nail biting is stress or anxiety. Vitamin B Inositol helps in increasing serotonin levels of the brain which may reduce anxiety/stress levels. With a reduction in anxiety/stress levels, an individual may be able to overcome the tendency of biting nails. A bottle of 240 caplets is around $15.00.
*One of the best and cheapest nail biting home remedies has to do with psychology. The trick is to wear a rubber band around your wrist. Every time you start to bite your nails, snap your wrist. This is going to hurt, but psychology has proven that having a negative physical reaction to something can train the brain not to do that.
*Mavala Stop - Helps Cure Nail Biting and Thumb Sucking 0.3 oz bottle is around $12.00 This had great reviews on Amazon.com.
*Chew Gum or Suck on Mints
Chew gum or suck on mints when you are tempted to bite your nails. The idea is that by keeping your mouth busy doing something else.
*Use Perfumed Hand Cream
Avoid buying hand cream that smells like food. Instead, use a perfumed hand cream, and use it often. Not only will it taste bad when you place your finger in your mouth, but the cream will soften and moisturize your hands.
Nail biting, to most people is a disgusting habit. Some people refer to it as self mutilation, others refer to it as calming and some say its something to do when they are bored. People actually tend to bite their nails for many reasons. Stress and anxiety are two of the most common reasons, while others are boredom and learned habit from an adult. I tend to think I am all of the above! There is really no right way to quit biting your nails, but hopefully one of the remedies or tips I posted will help you as well. If anyone has any other ways that worked for you, I would love to hear about it!
