Winter is coming and you know you need to change your skin care regimen. Did you ever think that your nails need that care too?
The cold weather is also a culprit of causing your nails to dry out split and break. The mix of outdoor cold, dry wind, and indoor heating makes your nails more likely to chip and peel.
Here are 5 tips you can do this Winter to protect your nails.
Keep your nails moisturized: Get in the habit of massaging the cream into the cuticles and fingertips. Doing all this helps stimulate healthy nail growth!
Maintaining an appointment: Winter can seriously suck up all the moisture out of your nails. To help prevent this, scheduling an appointment with your nail specialist monthly can really help the maintenance of healthy nails.
We even offer Paraffin Waxing Treatments at our salon for both hands and feet.
Make sure to file your nails in one direction: While some might not always have the time or money to see their technicians monthly watching their technique can help you at home too. We recommend you use an emery board and keep filing in the same direction. Also, wet nails break easier, so avoid filing after just having taken a shower.
Soak your nails in warm water: Your nails will thank you for this one. The idea is to literally hydrate your nails. After soaking your hands in warm water for 3-4 minutes, apply Vaseline on both your nails and cuticles. Give your nails some time absorb the treatment.
Stay hydrated: This tip is common during Summer because the weather makes you sweat and lose water, but it’s also important during the Winter too. Remember, your body also hydrates itself from the inside. So make sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
