Did you know that when talking about beautiful nails you first must have beautiful hands? The nails are attached to your hands so having ugly looking hands will ensure that your nails are ugly as well.
The first thing you need to understand is what it takes to keep you hands looking flawless and healthy that way you can translate that into your nails. The first thing I suggest doing is to wash your hands and your nails at least 5 times per day, sometimes more.
The reason you need to wash your hands at least 5 times per day is because you need to wash your hands before every meal, once in the morning, and once right before bedtime. What this will do is make sure that there isn’t dirt on your hands for longer than a few hours at a time.
After you have washed your hands I strongly recommend that you don’t wipe them off but dab them with a soft cloth in order to get all the excess water off. Doing this will ensure that you don’t rub any natural oils off your skin and also it will make sure that you don’t open any cuts or breaks in your skin.
The reason so many people have dry skin after they wash their hands isn’t because they aren’t using a $20 soap, it is because the soap they are using leaves more water on their hands than others do and with that you think you need to scrub the water off when in reality you don’t, you just need to dab it.
Now comes to most important part in making sure that your hands and your nails are moisturized and healthy, moisturizing lotion. Not as many people use moisturizing lotion as should be, and the reasons for it is unknown. The only thing I know is that with so many people have dried and cracked skin and nails they really should put on a good moisturizer in order to get rid of all the blemishes in their skin and nails. What moisturizers do for your skin and nails is it will help keep your skin and nail layers moist and in doing so it will help close cuts and gaps in your skin and nails.
Here is what you really need to understand about your nails. The only way you will ever have beautiful nails is if you keep your skin healthy. Something that most people never do is worry about their cuticles and doing that is very important in order to keep your nails beautiful. The best thing to do to your cuticles is to rub Vitamin E on them because this will make sure that they all grow together instead of splitting.
When it comes to your hands and nails there really isn’t anything that can’t be done and especially health wise. Think about everything you do when it comes to your hands because beautiful hands means beautiful nails. The one thing I want you to remember is that everything on your body is connected so make sure you keep everything in tip top shape.
