While you can make a change anytime you want, there’s something special about the start of a new year that sparks the desire for improvement. As you're making your New Year’s resolutions don’t forget to include your nails. Our nails don’t often get the attention and care that they need, so why not make this the year that all changes? Here are some resolutions to make for your nails in 2021.
Apply Cuticle Oil Daily
Caring for your cuticles should be at the top of your list for growing stronger, healthier nails. Your cuticles protect your nails and without proper care, they dry out and become damaged. This leaves your nails vulnerable to infection as well as snags and breaks. Keep cuticle oil next to your bed so you’ll remember to apply it every day to keep your cuticles and nails hydrated and strong.
Don’t Pick or Peel Your Gel
As tempting as it may be to pick at and peel your gel manicure when it’s ready to be removed, resist the temptation. When you're peeling off the gel you’re likely peeling off the top layer of your nail with it, and this is a disaster for the health of your nails. Instead, make sure to use a good quality gel remover or come into the salon to have them removed.
Filing your nails the wrong way weakens them and makes your tips prone to breaking and peeling. Never saw back and forth with the file. File in one direction with smooth, short strokes to shape them and remove rough edges.
If you’ve always dreamed of long beautiful nails but the reality is brittle nails, ridges, and peeling, your body could be lacking in certain nutrients. Adding supplements formulated for healthy hair, skin, and nails is a great way to ensure your body has what it needs to grow strong lovely nails.
Schedule Manicures Regularly
Manicures are more than just pretty nails. Professional manicures are an important part of your nail care routine. Scheduling manicures on a regular basis will allow your manicurist to spot potential problems and head them off early before they have a chance to wreck your nails.
