Here Are Some Nail Care Tips You can Try At Home
We always take good care of our body but some times we fail to realize how nail care is very important. Our hands and feets never take a day off, why shouldn,t we take care of them. We may wear the best outfit but you should know it is our nails that make the statement.
First always file your nails to trim them a little and even them out. This will help to keep your nails in shape and always looking good.
The next thing you would like to do is to soak your nails in warm water for about five minutes to soften the cuticles. Dry them off with a towel and then apply some cuticle remover. Let it soak for three minutes. This will soften the dead skin even more so that it’ll be easier to remove.
You can now use a cuticle pusher and gently push back your cuticles while also going in a slight circular motion. The circular motion helps pull off the dead cuticle skin.
For any hangnails, you can use some nippers to carefully clip them off. You can now use cuticle oil by rubbing it on your nails to restore moisture and to keep your cuticles from drying out. Cuticle oil not only keeps your nails looking healthy but also helps them grow.
You can also use some hand cream to make your skin looking good as well.
Now for the nail tips the first thing you will do is to exfoliate your hands. You can use the SpaRitual PASSIONFRUIT AGAVE EXFOLIATING CLEANSING OIL. You can do this around once a week. It really leaves your skin looking and feeling soft.
Try to always use soy polish remover as much as possible. The ella+mila, Soy Nail Polish Remover works best. It’s a very gentle natural alternative to regular remover. Instead of drying out your nails it actually moisturizes them since it doesn’t have all those chemicals which will in a way help to destroy your nails. It may take slightly longer to remove the polish but if you let it soak a little it shouldn’t be a problem.
I find that when I use soy remover more often it keeps my skin from peeling, looking cracked and dry. Once you’re done removing your polish you can just wipe away the excess and it basically looks like you just moisturize.
Also a good tip for growing longer nails is to gently massage the cuticle oil into your nails. Use light pressure which will get the blood flowing and promote nail growth. If you don’t have cuticle oil, cooking oil is a great alternative. I like using grapeseed, coconut or olive oil. They are also great hand moisturizer but it is a bit greasy obviously. Make sure you do this when you have some downtime so you can let it soak and not get everything you touch oily.
Using a keratin treatment is another way to keep your nails looking good. The RescueRXx Daily Keratin Treatment helps remove white spots, splitting and peeling. It helps your nails become thicker and stronger along with improving the overall condition. You can apply the Keratin treatment once a day and you can also apply it over nail polish.
Above all, It is very important to eat healthy. Try to eat as much fruits and vegetables as possible and always make sure to drink a lot of water, (at least six glasses of water a day).
