Nail Care Tips

Well-groomed, beautiful nails are an integral part of a woman's appearance. Healthy nails, in addition to being attractive, reflect personal habits, both good and bad. They also reflect our general state of health.

Nail Care Tips

1. Wear Gloves while washing dishes or working in detergent-based liquids.

2. Avoid harsh metal files.

3. Use a quality hand and nail lotion to protect and moisturize. Dry nails tend to crack and split.

4. Avoid clipping your nails. Instead, file them at a 45 degree angle.

5. The best time to file nails is immediately after a bath. Nails are much softer then. You can also soak your hands in a bowl of warm water before filing.

6. Never file feed into the corners of your fingers. Do it from corner to the centre.

7. Leave the cuticle alone. The cuticle invites infection on the nail's tissue.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is essentially important for soft and smooth skin. Puncture a Vitamin E capsule and massage the nourishing oil to smoothen cuticles.

Nail Painting Tips

Nail painting can protect nails from damage. In some people, it can ward off fungal infection.

1. Add a top coat of clear nail polish to protect the nail.

2. More than two coats of polish robs the nail's breathing space.

3. Use an acetone-free nail polish remover. Acetone dries nails and can make them brittle.
