Who doesn't love going to the nail salon and treating yourself to a luxurious manicure? Of course, having someone else tend to your nails is great, but how are you treating your nails in between salon visits? Having strong, healthy nails is the new flex, so we cannot stress the importance of having clean, healthy-looking nails. Practising good nail hygiene keeps you looking your best! Here are a few quick tips that will keep your nails strong and well-maintained no matter your lifestyle.
Nails need Moisture too!
We tend to focus on moisturising every part of our body, forgetting about our nails. Try adding coconut oil to your cuticles and nails to prevent them from getting dry, brittle, or flaky. R&R Luxury Virgin Coconut Oil is pure, cold-pressed, and unrefined. Coconut oil is filled with vitamin F, helping to retain your skin's moisture softening the nail cuticles.
So Fresh, So Clean
Keeping your nails clean prevents bacteria from growing under your nails. Also, you want to make sure you thoroughly dry your hands after cleansing, as added water can lead to fungus. Our Liquid Black Soap is just what you need to keep your nails fresh, clean, and bacteria-free. Black Soap is an effective cleanser that removes bacteria from the skin acting as an antibacterial.
Harsh Products?! 🙅🏿♀️
If you cannot pronounce the ingredients in a product, chances are you should not use it. From dish detergent to nail polishes, your goal is to use natural products as much as possible. Sometimes you may need to use gloves when cleaning, and that's fine. However, any nail protection is the best protection. Start by looking for products that are eco-friendly and non-toxic. Good Vibes All-Purpose Cleaner is a safe cleaning product you should start using. Need nail polish? Try vegan nail polish brand Auda B.
Aht, Aht...Stop Biting Your Nails!
Nail-biting is one habit that is difficult to break for many. But think about it, we touch so many things throughout the day, so putting our hands in our mouth can quickly transfer germs and bacteria. There are multiple reasons why people bite their nails. However, identifying triggers and extending yourself grace will help you on the journey of stopping.
