    If your client had severely bitten nails focusing on cuticle work will encourage nail growth, expose more nail plate and make the nails appear longer?

    Explanation
    Overuse of buffers can cause dehydrated and thin nails because excessive buffing can remove the natural oils and moisture from the nails, leading to dryness and thinning.

This can lead to irregularities in the nail's surface, causing deep ridges to appear. These ridges may be permanent if the damage to the Matrix is severe or temporary if the damage is less severe and the Matrix is able to repair itself over time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The skin produces Vitamin D as a response to sunlight because sunlight triggers a chemical reaction in the skin that converts a compound called 7-dehydrocholesterol into Vitamin D3. This process occurs when the skin is exposed to ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation from sunlight. Vitamin D is important for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus in the body, which is essential for strong bones and teeth. It also plays a role in maintaining a healthy immune system. Therefore, it is true that the skin produces Vitamin D as a response to sunlight.

    Keratinisation is the formation of dead tissue from...........................cells?

    Correct Answer
    living
    Explanation
    Keratinisation is the process in which living cells in the epidermis of the skin undergo a transformation into dead tissue. This transformation involves the cells producing a tough protein called keratin, which helps to provide protection and waterproofing to the skin. As the cells move towards the surface of the skin, they gradually lose their nucleus and other organelles, eventually becoming flattened and filled with keratin. This process allows the skin to form a strong, protective barrier against external factors such as pathogens and physical damage.
