Most of the times we tend to overlook our nails when looking at our personal hygiene. This is however a very big mistake. The nails are just as important as any other part of the body and failing to take care of them can actually pose a health risk to you. Just like all other parts of the body, a healthy diet is essential to getting good nails but this is just the beginning.
When it comes to proper nail care, cleanliness is one of the most important factors. It is vital that you take the time to ensure that your nails are well cleaned. You could choose to clean them by yourself. Simply wash your hands using water and a gentle soap then gently scrub your nails using a nail scrub. Apart from ensuring that your nails remain beautiful and clean, this will also serve to ensure that your nails are rid of any and all bacteria. You can also choose to have your nails cleaned by a professional. This is most probably the best idea as you can be sure that nothing will be left to chance. You can visit any of nail salons and have them professionally clean your nails for you.
Trimming your nails is also another very important aspect of nail care. Prior to trimming, warm some water and soak your nails for approximately five minutes. This will work very well to ensure that your nails and soft and it will in turn make it healthier, safer and less messy to trim the nails. Again, the option of visiting a nail salon to have your nails professionally trimmed is a viable one.
After soaking your nails, you should definitely take the time to take care of your cuticles. This is because at this point they will be yielding and soft and it will be very easy to do so. You should however not completely remove the cuticles from the nails. The main purpose of the cuticles is to keep bacteria from getting into your body. Completely removing them exposes your body to a lot of risk.
Get a cuticle stick and slowly and gently push back your cuticles. Having your cuticles remain pushed back also works very well to ensure that you never have to deal with any ragged cutting. This will eventually enhance the appearance of your cuticles. If you are not really sure about the best thing to do with your cuticles, it would be advisable for you to visit a professional nail salon to get further guidance.
What are the differences between Manicure and Full Set?
A manicure and/or gel manicure is where we concentrate on your “actual/real” nails; trimming and shaping your nails, the cuticles, and polishing on polish or gel polish on your nails. A full set, also known as artificial set, is where we apply solar powder and liquid onto your “actual/real” nails in order to extend your nail length and/or make it stronger using the powder, depending on your needs and wants for your nails. Manicure = dealing with your real nails Full Set = applying artificial nails and/or solar powder to your existing nails.
What Is The Best Nail Style For You?
As with many things in life, the answer to this question really boils down to your personal preference. If you love natural-looking nails, gel nails are a great choice. They’re also a great pick to help prevent your nails from getting damaged. On the other hand, if you’re trying to avoid cracking or peeling nail polish, acrylic nails will suit your needs. Keep in mind, if either gel or acrylic nails are incorrectly applied, you run the risk of damaging your nails. The key to getting the best gel or acrylic nails is to rely on a licensed nail technician to give you your manicure.
