At Maxilous Salon, we want to share some of our fave tips to help you maintain beautiful, healthy nails year-round.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Dry, brittle nails are no fun. Show your nails some love by moisturizing daily with cuticle oil and hand cream. For an extra moisture boost, treat yourself to paraffin wax treatments. The wax works wonders to lock in hydration.
Trim Them Right
Clip your nails straight across to avoid painful snags and tears. Use sharp clippers after a shower when nails are softer. File them into a rounded or square shape that you like. And don't cut cuticles - it can lead to infection!
Protect Your Hands
Wear gloves when doing chores and dealing with chemicals. That hot water and cleaning stuff can be rough on your nails! An apron can also guard your nails from damage in the kitchen.
We know it's tempting to pick at peeling nails, but it just makes splitting worse. Gently file away peeling layers instead. Keeping nails polished also helps avoid the pick.
Go Gentle With Tools
Using metal nail tools too aggressively under nails can cause injury. Be gentle, and try a wood stick if needing to push cuticles. Don't overfile either–just light buffing.
Biotin, calcium, multivitamins can provide extra nutrients to strengthen nails. Ask your doc about dosage recommendations first. A balanced diet gives you nail-healthy vitamins too.
