Here are foolproof tips on how to take care of your nails!
BRUSH YOUR NAILS
To further get rid of harmful bacteria, it’s also recommended you scrub your nails and skin with a toothbrush. Doing so will remove and exfoliate any dead skin you might have without the need for harsh scrubs full of chemicals.
Tip: Avoid scrubbing your nails roughly as they are delicate and can easily be exposed to infection.
TRY A MOISTURISER
Unfortunately, regular washing and brushing of hands can lead to dryness of skin and nail bed. If possible, try to use a moisturiser after every wash and make sure to work it deep into your cuticles and nails. Nutrient-rich oils such as coconut oil also work well to bring back the much-needed moisture to your skin.
LEAVE YOUR CUTICLES ALONE
Do not remove or cut your cuticles as they are important in keeping your nails away from harmful bacteria and possible infections. You are also minimising the risk of having those unwanted hangnails by leaving your cuticles alone. It’s also best not to tear the former as you might rip live tissue along with it.
PLACE IMPORTANCE ON NAIL HEALTH OVER LENGTH
Even though long, painted nails are absolutely stunning, you should place importance first and foremost on the health of your nails. It’s recommended to keep them short (especially if you suffer from breakage or snags) and focus on strengthening them instead. For an added benefit, shorter nails are easier to manage and look professional and neat overall.
