8 Ways to Get the Best from Your Nail Care Kit

B

eing able to look after your nails at home with a nail care kit is an important part of maintaining healthy nails, no matter how often you go and see a manicurist. This is especially true when you consider how often we are all washing our hands now due to the good habits that the pandemic has reminded us of.

Harsh chemicals, soaps and dehydration can damage nails if left unchecked. That’s why it is more important than ever to look at using a nail care kit at home.

We have put together some simple nail care tips to help you achieve healthy, strong nails and the perfect manicured look. Good nail care only requires a little effort to go a long way, so let’s take a look at the different things you can do to make your nails healthy and strong, all from the comfort of home.

 

#1 – Start with a Good Quality Nail Care Kit

T

he best thing you can do for your nails is to invest in one of the best nail care kits on the market to help repair damage, restore nutrients, hydrate your nails or just to keep them in tip-top condition. Our nail treatment kits are designed to

“restore nails from foundation to surface with a range of regenerative formulas that reinforce the nail and aid the recovery or maintenance process”

according to Jessica Vartoughian, the founder of JESSICA Cosmetics.

Some benefits you can expect from using a nail care kit include:

      • Your nail health and appearance will dramatically improve if used as instructed.
      • You can do the work at home in your own comfortable environment and in your own time.
      • You get the satisfaction of doing it yourself and seeing the results.
      • It will likely save you money.
      • You manage your own level of care and decide what you need.

Going to the salon isn’t for everyone. Maybe you think it is too expensive, or perhaps you just aren’t comfortable in that kind of social environment. Whatever the reason, an at-home nail care kit offers you a way to care for your nails on a professional level without the hassle.

#2 – Pay Careful Attention to Your Diet

D

iet plays a big part in the health and appearance of your nails. Make sure that you eat a varied, balanced and healthy diet to ensure that your nails stay strong.

Some people may also benefit from taking a multivitamin and/or mineral supplement, however you should consult your health professional before starting these treatments.

A diet that lacks critical minerals and vitamins can impact your entire body, not just your nails, so we certainly recommend that you make the effort to eat as well as you can.

#3 – Use the Correct Nail Filing Technique

T

he correct filing technique plays a big part in how your nails look. Emery board style files MUST ALWAYS be used in only one direction when filing.

If you use a back-and-forth motion, you will separate the nail layers which leads to peeling nails and a poor foundation for your polish.

 

On the other hand, if you are lucky enough to have a good quality crystal nail file, these can be used in either direction without causing any issues.

You should also be very careful when buffing the nail plate too, as it is quite easy to remove enough of your nail to cause sensitivity and even pain!

#4 – Drink Plenty of Water or Fluids

W

e know that drinking enough water is one piece of advice that you have probably heard many times before. It is crucial to stay hydrated for many different reasons and nail care is another that we can add to the list.

Drinking sufficient water is essential for your overall health and more specifically your nail health too!

Without sufficient moisture or hydration, your nails can break and peel quite easily, or they may become incredibly brittle. You can ensure nails retain moisture and remain strong by drinking adequate water throughout your day.

#5 – Know The Products You Use

W

here possible, we recommend that you avoid the use of acrylic nails. We know many people like acrylic nails because they want longer and more luxurious-looking nails. However, acrylic nails are very damaging to your natural nail and when removed often result in peeling, damaged or weak nails.

Why not try the natural nail approach and find out just how easy it is to have healthy nails that are gorgeous to look at and all yours!

If you love the shine and wearability of acrylic nails, we recommend soak-off gel nails as they provide enhanced durability but are a much gentler alternative.

Soak-off gels can last for over 21 days and come in a huge range of colours and finishes to suit every mood. All look stunning and provide a much healthier alternative for your nails.

#6 – Consider A Biotin Supplement

A

nother useful tip when it comes to nail care is biotin supplements, also known as vitamin B-7 or vitamin H. Biotin is one of the B group vitamins, and it is very beneficial for several reasons. This vitamin is not stored in the body as it is water-soluble, therefore you need to consume it daily to ensure you take the recommended allowance.

Biotin can help strengthen your nails and hair, while aiding the body’s nervous system and enabling it to function correctly.

You can find Biotin in a whole host of foods such as legumes, cooked eggs and sardines, or you can take a supplement that contains this B vitamin. Check with your healthcare provider before you take a biotin supplement to ensure it is safe and appropriate for you.

#7 – Massage Your Hands and Feet Daily

I

t is important to massage your hands and feet daily as this helps to prevent all kinds of problems associated with circulation issues. Some of the many benefits include reducing the discomfort linked with burning feet sensation, relieving inflammation and pain, and making your ankles and hands flexible and strong.

Regular massages can also promote sound sleep, help you to relax after a long day and improve blood circulation to your legs.

Good circulation is critical to healthy nail growth and will ensure your nails always look their best. You can also use a cuticle oil in your massage to pamper yourself and soften cuticles.

#8 – Trim More File Less

Y

ou should trim your nails at least every two weeks to keep them looking their best.

NEVER use scissors, instead clean and sharp nail clippers are the best tool for the job.

A great time to clip your nails is after a shower or bath, as they will be soft and much easier to trim. In fact Jessica Vartoughian teaches us to soak nails during a manicure and prior to any filing for precisely this reason.

Do not trim your nails too short, as this can cause discomfort or pain if you contact the nail bed. If you encounter an ingrown nail, this can be both unsightly and painful therefore it is best to see an expert to deal with this problem, rather than trying to resolve it at home. A good nail technician or doctor will be your best help.
