#Nail Damage And Prevention

The simplest way to avoid nail damage is to wear gloves.If you can’t wear gloves,you could at least use a long mop-this allows you to keep your hands off water and your nails will definitely benefit.If you get your hands wet,remember to rinse them well and dry them carefully after the work is done.Then apply ample amounts of a moisturising cream.

#Beautifying your nails

Hands are hard to hide because they’re almost always on show.Here are our hints to help you protect and moisturise yours.

#1 File

First,file and shape your nails using an emery board.Remember to keep the file at 45 degree angle and never file the nail back and forth.File in one direction only for the best results-Filing back and forth is bad because this frays and weakens the nails.

#2 Soften Cuticles

Next, soak your hands in warm soapy water for about 5 minutes.This will get them nice and clean and soften your cuticles.Pat them dry with a towel and massage cuticle cream into cuticles.

 

#3 Push Back Cuticles

Gently push the cuticles back with a cotton wool bud.Remove any dead skin with a circular movements then clean off with a tissue.

#4 Moisturise

Finish off with lashings of hand cream.
