Winter Nail Care Tips
Keep your pointers pretty and in tip top shape this season with these winter nail care tips! I don’t know about you, but I definitely see and feel a difference in my nails when it’s wintertime.
Blame it on the cold air, drying heaters and overall moisture loss that make our nails weak and dry. But all hope is not lost, there are plenty of ways for us to combat the damaging effects of the coldest season on our nails with these simple winter nail care tips below.
Keeping your hands covered up is one of the best winter nail care tips I can give you. Even if your fingers aren’t freezing, keeping them shielded from the cold weather reduces damage. You can also take it a step further and slather on hand cream and wear cotton gloves while you sleep. You’ll wake up to noticeably softer, smoother hands in the morning. Don’t forget to wear gloves when you handle household cleaners and wash dishes, too!
KEEP LOTION HANDY
While you might not necessarily associate lotion with nail care, the two are related. Lotion helps keep your hands and nails moisturized so you are less likely to have hangnails, gnarly cuticles and brittle nails. Make an effort to moisturize your hands and nails after each and every time you wash your hands so they stay hydrated.
LOSE THE SCENTED LOTIONS
As much as I love scented lotions, the additives and chemicals in most lotions with fragrance can be drying. Instead of using a lotion, try out an ointment like Aquaphor. It is highly effective at keeping skin hydrated and creating a barrier between your skin and the environment. Although fragranced lotions can certainly be used on occasion, try to stick with fragrance-free creams for the most part.
USE NAIL POLISH REMOVER SPARINGLY
Overusing nail polish remover, especially in the winter, can be particularly drying to the nails. I know we all love our manicures, but try to limit using nail polish remover to once a week and use non-acetone nail polish remover. Acetone polish removers are harsh on your nails, cuticles and skin and can strip your nails of their natural moisture. But whatever you do, don’t peel off your nail polish! Peeling and picking at old polish is bad news for your nails.
You probably hear this nail care tip a lot, but it is undoubtedly worth repeating-go easy on your fingernails! Get in the habit of not using them as tools as well as avoiding biting your nails and picking at your cuticles. Doing so will only further damage your nails in addition to the abuse they get from the weather!
Benefits Of Using Top Coat And Base Coat With Nail Polish
Before you start practising on how to apply polish on your own, it is necessary to know the differences between the top coat and base coat. Many of us don’t know the real benefits of using a base coat or are in too much of a hurry hence we go straight to doing the manicure.

How to get a glowing skin? How to have flawless skin? These are the questions which need a satisfying answer. Clear glowing skin is a dream for every person. No one likes pimples, zits, dark spots, baggy eyes or dark circles. There are different skin types and different problems associated with them. Dry skin can get itchy sometimes and needs to be hydrated often to keep it glowing. Oily skin is prone to pimples and has a greasy texture. Some people have normal skin, which is God’s gift. The skin is not too oily or dry but needs to be taken care of regular toning and cleansing.
