Combating Winter: Keep Your Nails Looking Great!

I fully admit that despite the amount of time I spend on my nails each weeks, they’re often the first area to show the stress of winter. Today I have some great tips from Nail Beauty Expert Katie Saxton from Custom Nail Solutions.

Diet Right
Take in calcium, iron, protein, and vitamins A, B, C and D and your nails will gradually grow stronger and healthier. Take in a lot of biotin.

Eat the right foods. Try fish, chicken, eggs, cheese, milk and plenty of fruits and vegetables. These are also great foods to keep you healthy overall!

Consistent Nail Maintenance
Scheduling regular manicures is crucial during the winter months if you want healthy nails. You can schedule in-salon manicures, or do them at home. Both work as long as you are doing them regularly.

File, buff and massage the nails. Purchase a buffer, and start at the cuticle and move forward to buff the entire nail bed. The buff will keep your nails from cracking.

Protect Your Nails
Nail strengtheners and hardeners. Think of it as conditioner for your hair. It cuts down on nail chipping most of all!

Cuticle Care
If you don’t want to spend money on name brand cuticle products, you can also use olive oil right from your kitchen! Whatever you decide, leave it on for five minutes to fully replenish your nails. Don’t wash your hands completely, allowing your nails to get the richest conditioning possible.

Use lotions to keep your hands moisturized. During the winter months, hands become dryer than we’d like. Use a few times a day and you’ll feel the difference.
Refuse the urge to bite your nails.

Don’t use your nails to pry open jars; find the right tool instead.
