My nails get white spots on them and I’ve been told its lack of calcium. Is this true?
White spots appearing haphazardly on the nails have got nothing to do with a deficiency. The nails are composed of layers of dead cells and if you knock either the nail or the matrix or “root” area where the nail is formed which lies behind and beneath the cuticle, the trauma causes the layers of cells to spring apart and an air bubble forms. As light hits and reflects from the nail the area appears to be white.
If you find the white spots unsightly, I recommend using MAVA WHITE. This special formulation hides the unsightly appearance of white spots and dull nails, while giving them a natural look. It is an optical colour perfector for the nails thanks to a specific optical azurant that reacts to UV lights. It’s also great as a base under a nail polish.
