If you’re like most women, there’s nothing worse than having chipped nails or stained fingers. If you’re not careful, these problems can cause your manicures to look unkempt and make you appear less polished in general. To ensure that your hands always look their best, try following these five nail maintenance tips.
1) Regular Manicures
One of the best ways to keep your nails looking great is to have regular manicures. Regular manicures will help you maintain the health and appearance of your nails while also keeping them healthy and strong. Plus, regular manicures are a great way to relax and take some time for yourself!
2) Applying Hand Cream
When it comes time to take care of your hands, you have the option of using hand cream or lotion. Hand cream is thicker and more moisturizing so if you have really dry skin, this may be a better option for you. For those who want something lighter, lotion is a great choice that will absorb quickly into your skin without feeling greasy. It’s also important to note that both types should be applied after washing your hands as the natural oils in your hands can interfere with the product’s ability to soak in.
It’s also a good idea to think about how often you wash your hands.
3) Wearing Gloves
Wearing gloves when doing household chores is the best way to keep your hands looking great. When using bleach or cleaning products, it’s important to wear gloves so you don’t end up damaging your nails and cuticles. Plus, you’ll be less likely to catch a cold as well.
4) Eating a Healthy Diet
Many people don’t realize that what you eat can have a significant impact on your nails. Eating a healthy diet, one rich in protein and vitamins and minerals, will help keep your nails strong. You should also avoid biting or picking at your nails. You can also try soaking them in lemon water for fifteen minutes after you wash your hands. Try these tips today!
5) Avoiding Bad Habits
1. Avoid biting your nails or picking at them. It can lead to nail loss or infection, so try using a bitter-tasting product or tape on the tips of your fingers instead.
2. Always wear gloves when you are washing dishes, gardening, and other household chores that will damage your nails.
3. Moisturize your cuticles with a lotion or oil before bed every night for soft hands in the morning.
