Nail Care 101: Maintaining Healthy and Strong Nails

Nail Care 101: Maintaining Healthy and Strong Nails

Posted by Deluxe Shop on

The desire for healthy and strong nails is universal, transcending age and style preferences. At Deluxe Laser & Aesthetics, we understand the science behind nail health and the importance of a meticulously performed manicure. In this guide, we offer essential tips to maintain the strength and beauty of your nails.

  1.  Hydration is Key

    Just like your skin, your nails need hydration to stay healthy. Dry nails are more prone to breakage and peeling. Incorporating a nourishing hand cream into your daily skincare routine can make a significant difference. Seek products with hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and shea butter, all known for their deeply moisturising properties.

  2.  The Right Tools Matter

    Investing in high-quality manicure tools is crucial. Avoid metal files that can cause micro-damage to your nails; instead, opt for crystal or glass files. These create a smoother finish and seal the keratin layers together, reducing the risk of peeling and splitting.

  3.  Mindful Manicures

    Choose your nail salon wisely. A good manicure should never hurt. At Deluxe Laser & Aesthetics, our technicians are trained to be gentle yet effective, especially when it comes to cuticle care. Remember, cuticles should be pushed back, not cut, to prevent infection and promote nail health.

  4.  Be Cautious with Gel and Acrylics

    While gel and acrylic manicures offer longer-lasting colour, they can cause damage if not properly applied or removed. Ensure your manicurist uses LED lamps rather than UV and insists on professional removal to avoid damaging your natural nails. 

  5. Embrace the Naked Nail

    Give your nails a breather. Regularly going without nail polish allows your nails to recover and can help highlight any issues that need attention. Healthy nails are smooth, without discolouration or spots.

  6.  Internal Care

    Nail health is not just about external care; your diet plays an integral role. Ensure you're getting enough biotin, found in eggs, fish, and nuts, which has been linked to improved nail strength. Similarly, vitamins A and C, found in fruits and vegetables, promote nail growth.
Remember, your nails are a reflection of your overall health. Maintaining them should be part of your holistic wellness approach. At Deluxe Laser & Aesthetics, we offer a range of manicure services and premium skin care products, all designed to help you achieve and maintain strong, healthy nails. Trust us to be your partners in achieving and maintaining your nail health.
