On these bleak winter days the first thing we do is try to stay warm but our nails suffer from not being cared for properly in this weather and day to day life. Here are a few tips to helps keep your nails in tip top condition.
The first tip is simple. It's all about nutrition. Having the right nutrition will keep your nails flexible and strong, along with keeping your cuticles well conditioned. Add plenty of the following in your diet: green leafy veg, raisins, almonds and poultry; eggs, spinach, broccoli and carrots ; and Brazil nuts, steak and pumpkin seeds.
Nail care is very important because our hands are always visible and we use out hands all day. Keep the cuticles motorised throughout the day. This will prevent them from cracking and will keep them soft. A bit of Qtica Cuticle Repair on the cuticles every night will help your nails grow as well as moisturise. Also try Dadi Oil.
When filing your nails only file in one direction instead of "sawing" them. This avoids splitting the nail and the nail peeling. Moisturise your nails.
Your nails will get dehydrated just like your skin in winter weather, especially if you're using nail polish remover on them on a regular. When you're putting some moisturiser on your body or face, add a bit on to your nails to help to stop them drying out.
When your cleaning be sure to protect your hands with gloves to help stop the chemicals and soaps from weakening your nails. Also if you are wanting to remove nail varnish and have weak nails already never use nail vanish remove containing acetone this will cause the nail to weaken.
Use these simple tips and you'll have fantastic looking hands and nails in no time.
Remember to sparkle to the tip!
