It is important to me that my nails and hands are taken care of, so I make sure that I give my nails and hands a pamper at least once a week. I have set up a nail care routine that ensures that my nails are clean, taken care of and healthy.
Here is my nail care routine:
I start by making sure that my nails are clean. I remove any old nail polish with a nail polish remover and an organic cotton wipe. It is important to make sure that any old nail polish is removed.
In order to have healthy nails, I need to make sure I take care of them. Here is how I take care of my nails:
Trimming nails: I trim my nails if they are too long seeing that I don’t like very long nails. If your nails are too long they also have the tendency to break more easily.
Cleaning up cuticles: I clean up my cuticles and get rid of any loose skins. Loose skins can hook and tear in, which is quite painful.
File: I file my nails shorter and fix any irregularities on them.
Buff & Smooth: I use my buff to smooth out any irregularities and get my nails looking shiny.
Cleaning Nails: Lastly I make sure that it is clean under my nails (dirty nails are yuck!)
It is important to moisturize your hands so that they are soft and smooth. Here is how I get my hands smooth and soft:
Washing my hands: After cleaning my nails I wash my hands with a gentle hand soap.
Using my favourite scrub on my hands: – I use my favourite scrub on my hands to get rid of any dead skin. You can get the recipe for the scrub here: Cinnamon & Vanilla Sugar Scrub
Applying cuticle and hand moisturizer: I apply my cuticle and hand moisturizer to ensure that my cuticles and hands are moisturized and soft.
Setting up a good nail care routine is absolutely essential. The best thing to do is to find what works for you and your nail care needs.
