We either spend hours of sessions in nail studios to keep up the nail game or we tend to ignore the basic care that helps in keeping our nails strong. Beautiful long nails that are healthy and naturally shiny is every woman's mission to achieve. But what do we actually do to get our nails right? We do nothing!
Well, if you want perfect nails bordered with healthy and flawless cuticles, it's time to awake. It's time to take care of your nails and moisturize them regularly. Now, please don't ask me how moisturising your nails leads to perfection! Read on the reasons below.
1. Healthy cuticles - Cuticle is the delicate area of our nail. It can easily get infected, or damaged. This is how moisturising works on your nails for healthy cuticles. Moisturising your nails at least once in a day will protect your cuticles. Just like the roots of the plants need water, our nail roots need moisture. If the roots of our nails is healthy and moisturised daily, the cuticles will be healthy too!
Tip: Once in a while, cleanse your fingers by soaking them in soapy lukewarm water for about 5 minutes and then moisturise.
2. Leads to soft edges - In case you have a sensitive skin which is easily affected with change of weather, we advise you to keep your skin moisturise all the time including the skin around your nails. Moisturising our nails and fingers gives the right environment for growing soft edges around the nails, even if you have bitten edges. Moisturising eliminates dryness and dullness of skin resulting in soft corners.
Tip: Vaseline, glycerin, and olive oil are few amazing and easily available moisturisers for your nails.
3. Brings back the shine - Moisturised nails help in combat brittleness and avoid lines in nails. Peeling is common in nails but not letting your cuticles and skin dry will keep the shine alive of your nails.
Tip: To maintain this healthy habit of keeping your nails moisturised, always carry a hand lotion in your purse/bag.
