TLC For Your Nails
Perfectly shaped and fashionably colored nails are a fantastic addition to your look, but broken, chipped nails surrounded by ragged cuticles and dry, flaky skin are most definitely not a fashion asset. As the seasons change and the temperature drops, here are some tips for keeping your nails looking their healthiest best.
Cooler air holds less moisture, and it doesn’t stop there. It also robs moisture from anywhere it can find it. This includes your skin and nails. Keep ahead of the hydration robbers with a moisturizing routine for your hands and nails that includes a rich lotion rubbed generously into your nail beds and cuticles too. And speaking of cuticles, invest in a good cuticle oil to keep them smooth and tear-free.
For some inner strength, be sure to get your fair share of biotin. This is one of the B vitamins, and while people usually think of it as a supplement that helps your body make energy, it also helps to strengthen brittle nails. You can usually find a good hair, skin and nail formula, or you can choose instead to ramp up your diet to include more lean protein as well as Vitamin C and biotin from choices such as lentils, sweet red peppers and almonds.
And finally, you may want to opt for a shorter nail length at your next manicure. Longer nails are more likely to snag, crack and ultimately break than shorter ones are. Keep them trimmed and smoothly shaped, and ask your nail technician about a protective polish that also delivers those vital vitamins for added strength.
