Here are three expert tips on keeping your nails healthy and beautiful.
1. Keep your nails clean and dry.
Of course it may seem obvious, but washing your hands and nails and keeping them clean is vital to their health! But did you know you should also definitely dry them afterwards? Leaving them wet can cause split fingernails!
When washing dishes, scrubbing floors or using harsh chemicals ALWAYS wear gloves! This will prevent any bacteria from gaining a foothold and growing under your fingernails. Protecting your fingers whenever possible will allow for you to have and keep healthy nails.
2. Practice good hygiene
A weekly manicure to clean up the cuticles will also prevent ingrown nails and infections.
3. Use moisturizer and apply a hardening treatment
When using hand lotion or a moisturizer, also rub it into the nails and cuticles. This will help your skin and nails feel soft and moisturized. Applying a hardening polish to your nails may also help prevent damage from the everyday activities of your busy lifestyle.
