Winter is extremely harsh on your hands and nails. It’s the height of cold and flu season. Frequent hand washing and use of alcohol based hand sanitizers to avoid contracting illness is very drying. Then there is the bone dry air and the fact that our hands are the part of our body most exposed to the elements. An important tool in battling the effects of winter on your hands and keeping them healthy throughout the season is a professional manicure.
Heal and Protect
A buildup of dead skin will prevent your skin from absorbing much needed moisture. The result is chapping and cracking that leaves your hands susceptible to infection. Our professional nail technicians will gently exfoliate your skin to allow moisture to be absorbed deep into the underlying layers where it is so desperately needed. They will then apply salon quality products to make your hands soft and supple, which will allow them to heal and protect them from further damage.
Critical Cuticle Care
Too often we neglect our cuticles, which can have very painful results. To prevent hangnails and sore, cracked cuticles you need to keep them well moisturized and properly trimmed. Regular hand creams are usually not enough on their own. You need a good quality cuticle cream to keep them in top shape. Since the cuticles protect your nails, it’s best to leave the trimming to the pros. Overtrimming can backfire and make matters worse by leaving your nails vulnerable to infection.
Prevent Dry Brittle Nails
It’s not only your cuticles and skin that feel the effects of the cold, dry winter air. To stay strong and healthy your nails need special care during the winter too. If neglected they will soon become dry and brittle and begin to peel and crack. Armed with the proper techniques and superior products, our nail technicians are prepared to condition, protect, and strengthen your nails to keep them healthy throughout the season as well.
