Permanent nail care is most often possible at home. Weekly, not every woman can afford to visit the nail salon due to cash costs and free time. And is it necessary? Meanwhile, nails and cuticles require regular and proper care.
Care of the nail plates should always start with the removal of residual lacquer. To do this, it is better to use products that do not contain acetone, as it adversely affects the nails. It is even better if nail polish remover contains vitamin supplements.
After that, you need to adjust the length of the nails and give them the desired shape using a nail file, remembering that at this moment the nails must be dry, otherwise it is very easy to destroy their fragile structure. Well, then go straight to the cuticle.
Before proceeding with the removal of the cuticle, it is necessary, first, to apply a special tool. I use for this Oriflame gel. It moisturizes and softens the cuticle.
I like its impact. Great simplifies the procedure of care. The only complaint to the manufacturers is not a very convenient extrusion hole. Indeed, in this case, the funds need quite a bit, and squeezed out too much, it is difficult to calculate.
Do not confuse the means for softening before removing with conventional cream. At the right at this stage of the tool should be the inscription cuticle remover, which translates from English as a means to remove the cuticle.
After applying the gel gently push the cuticle with an orange stick, without pressing down on the nail itself. I want to remind you that this tool is disposable. Starting a new manicure, it is better to take a new wand.
I do not advise to save on them. They are sold in almost any cosmetic departments and stores, often in sets of 20 or 50 pieces and are inexpensive.
Very much, many seek to remove it without thinking that caution is needed in this matter. And the problems that arise are most often caused by improper care.
The cuticle can be divided into living and nonliving. Based on this division, it can already be concluded that the skin on the nail is not all to be removed, and that the living touch is not worth it.
A live cuticle is just that thin film that is pressed tightly against the nail. To remove it means to remove the protective barrier and turn on the green light for all bacteria and infections. Non-living is removed painlessly. Or you can only remove the side rollers.
Out of ignorance, I once touched the living part and there were painful sensations, and sometimes there was a little bit of blood. In these cases, the main thing is to treat the place with alcohol and not to repeat more similar mistakes.
After removing the cuticle, you must apply a nourishing cream or oil and gently rub it with light massage movements.
For a long time, I used again the product from Oriflame – a nourishing oil-care for nails and cuticle. Was quite pleased with the effect.
I applied it not only after a manicure, but daily before bedtime or, on the contrary, in the morning, it helped to avoid the feeling of dryness. By the way, thanks to this systematic care and the procedure of a full-fledged manicure is required less often.
And what tools do you use for nail and cuticle care?
