Summer nails: Hydrate, moisturize, oxygen, replenish. Take a break in the summer and enjoy a relaxing, rejuvenating, and moisturizing hand and nail manicure. Its time to hit the refresh button ladies and let your nails get some TLC from natural sun exposure and the oxygen around us.
Our nails are made up of the protein keratin as is our hair. In order to build a nice luster in our nails and hair it is very important to be aware of our life style. Your nails can reap the benefits of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. It is recommended to take a break from polish because as the saying goes “too much of one thing can be bad” no matter what the “something” is. The recommendation can be anywhere form a week to up to a month with no polish application. It can be determined by going to your nail tech and having them analyze your nails health and asking for a recommendation.
One of the reasons we see a dryness in our nails is due to the lac of oxygen that can reach our nails, whenever we have any application have it be polish or layovers such as acrylic we are in a sense blocking an even flow of oxygen from getting through our nail and also hindering your natural oils to coat and condition your nail plate I.E. causing a weak brittle nail.
But there is good news, there are many things that can be done to keep your nails at their best. First and foremost receiving manicures in a regular basis is key to maintaining a healthy and clean look to your hands first impressions do count. Secondly we as women do so much to try and consolidate our beauty daily regimen and adding one more thing seems tedious, but you have to understand the importance of applying cuticle oil. Here is an example I always use; when we wash and shampoo our hair we always condition afterwards because we know that is essential to having soft and healthy hair, well same concept goes for our nails we wash our hands numerous times a day causing dryness and chapping to our skin and cuticles so what we do is apply lotion (if we even have time for that), but think about your nails the only thing that can truly penetrate through to your nail is cuticle oil “cuticle oil is the conditioner to our nails”. And lastly if you haven’t heard it enough the most important thing you can do is take care of yourself physically and mentally. Your nails are a window into your health and if you are sustaining a healthy lifestyle your nails will reap the benefits and thank you.
