Hand And Nail Care Tips

POSTED BY: TheBangleBusiness


Whether it’s a ring or bracelet, when we wear jewellery, it’s only natural that everyone will look more closely at our hands. The following are some tips that can help you to keep your hands and nails in great shape before you show off your latest or most favourite pieces.

  • On a daily basis, wash your hands frequently and use a nail brush to ensure that your hands and nails are clean.
  • Use a good moisturiser that is formulated for your hands on a daily basis. Just before your bedtime, moisturise your hands so that the lotion has a better chance to soak into the skin.
  • Once a week, apply nail oil or even just a drop of olive oil to your nails and gently massage your cuticles to help stimulate blood flow and nail growth at the nail bed. Doing this just after a hot bath or shower is the perfect time since the pores are open and the oil can penetrate more deeply.
  • Once your nails are dry, file them regularly to buff away any small nicks or jagged edges that might get caught on fabric or another surface, prompting a break or tear.
  • When you file your nails, file in one direction only instead of sawing back and forth; this will help to smooth your nail ends so that they are stronger and less likely to break or tear.
  • Have your nails professionally done, or use a good quality primer, colour and nail sealer when painting your nails for long lasting colour and shine.
  • When painting your nails, use thin coats so that the polish will dry quickly and be less likely to smudge. Make certain that your nails have time to completely dry before applying another coat.
  • Be careful when performing tasks that require you to use your hands. If your work requires you to type on a keyboard a great deal, make certain to choose a nail length that will be less prone to breaking with such frequent use.
  • When your colour begins to chip or fade, don’t pick at the colour that remains with your other nails. Don’t just paint over it either, as the end result will look lumpy and uneven. Use a good, acetone-free polish remover that is formulated with a moisturiser to help protect your nails.
  • Wear gloves to protect your hands if you are doing work that can cause them to get dirty or make callouses.

Following these few simple tips can help you to keep your hands and nails in top shape and dazzle everyone with your jewellery choice.
