Practice Healthy Nail Habits
Here are 5 easy steps to follow for strong, healthy, beautiful nails:
Be sure to moisturize your hands every time you expose them to water or harsh elements. Cold, dry winter weather, repeated exposure to water, and excessive contact with detergents can easily damage nails. Apply moisturizer, such as an alpha hydroxy acid formula, regularly and remember to
massage the cream into your cuticles.
- AVOID PHYSICAL DAMAGE
We often subject our nails to unnecessary damage, such as biting our nails and cuticles and picking off nail polish. If your nails are already weak or thin, these bad habits will only cause more harm.
- TRIM AND FILE PROPERLY The best time to cut or trim your nails is after bathing, because the nails will be softer. Nails have a greater chance of breaking and chipping if they are cut while dry and brittle. Additionally, if your nails are already fragile, they'll fare better if kept shorter. And remember, always file nails in the same direction.
- MINIMIZE THE USE OF NAIL POLISH REMOVER All nail polish removers are rough on nails. Try not to use remover more than once a week. The less often, the better.
