How To Keep Your Nails Beautyful?

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

The beautiful woman about town doesn’t just have a beautiful face her hands are beautiful too. But you don’t have to spend a fortune having a manicure every month to achieve this; you can do it yourself at home. Here are some simple nail care tips that will not only keep your nails looking beautiful but save you a small fortune as well.

1. Cuticles make sure you oil them: Do this each night before you go to bed it will make them healthier and stronger

2. Use Blue Tinged Translucent Polish: It will make the pink of your nails look a deeper shade of pink and the white in your nails even whiter.

3. Regular filing: Is essential and stops nails from breaking or splitting and makes them look better, so file them all to the same length.

4. Nail buffing: Do once a week this will increase the circulation and oxygen in the nails. Do for about two minutes each session and be careful to apply firm pressure but don’t be to hard, which can damage the nail

5. Moisturize: Have hand cream always so you can add moisture whenever your hands are feeling dry or in need of some protection.

6. Get a white nail pencil: This is great for enhancing the look of your nails. Use the pencil underneath the edges of your nails. This will enhance color and make them look fresh and clean.

7. Nourish your nails from within: If you have any of the following then you need to change your diet.

  • Lack of vitamin A and calcium indicates dryness and brittleness.
  • Lack of protein, folic acid and vitamin C causes hang nails.
  • White bands across the nails mean a protein deficiency.
  • A lack of sufficient hydrochloric acid can cause splitting nails.
  • Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to dryness, very rounded and curved ends or darkening of nails.
  • Zinc deficiency can cause white spots on the nails.
  • Red skin around cuticles indicates poor metabolism of essential fatty acids.

8. Keep polish in a cool place: Don’t store polish in a warm place as the polish will change consistency, store it always somewhere cool i.e. in the refrigerator.

9. Less is More: Do not remove and reapply polish more than once or twice a week. Why? Because it will dry out your nails. Choosing a remover with built in moisturizer will mean you don’t have to change coats too often.

10 Hand Massage: Boosts circulation and encourages healthy nail growth and is the perfect way to make your hands feel wonderful. Incorporate the above in your beauty regime and you will have healthy and great looking nails..

Take Care Nail for Men

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Clean Up

To start with, special attention should be paid to your fingernails. When cleaning your hands, be sure to clean just not the palm and the fingers, but also the fingernails. In most pharmacies and retail stores, you will find nail brush which are not very costly. Buy one and use it to clean the dirt under the fingernails at least once every day.

Keep Nails Short

Of course if you keep your fingernails short, then chances of dirt accumulating under it will be less. But always trim your fingernails with nail clippers and not your teeth. Many men have this habit of tearing off their nails with teeth either consciously or unconsciously. It is not only a bad habit but unhygienic as well because germs in your fingernails then can easily get into your mouth and not to mention jagged and uneven edges! So, as WebMD suggests, use the clipper to clip nails straight across and round off slightly at the edges. Pay a little more time to your nails and smooth any jagged edges with a nail file.

Cuticle Care

The next step of nail care for men is maintaining the cuticles. Cuticles are the soft tissues that surround your nails. After you take your shower or when you have washed your hands, gently push back your cuticles. Remember never to cut them as it can lead to infection.

Take Care Of Hangnails

Often you will find bits of bothersome dry skin around your cuticles. These are called hangnails and you should clip them with cuticle scissors to avoid further problem.

Moisturize

Your hands and nails are in danger of drying up because they are washed frequently and exposed to all the harsh elements. So it is very important, as WebMD suggests that you use a good moisturizing cream, gel or lotion after washing your hands. If you are particular about your products, then there are hand and body lotions for men available in the market; otherwise a good moisturizer is enough for this step of nail care for men.

Buff

If you are meticulous about your looks, then buff your nails to give that polished look and a nail buffer can help you to get that. You will find this product in various types in most retail stores and pharmacies. Instruction of use is generally written on the package which you should follow for best result..
