Winter-Ready Hands and Nails: Top 3 Tips for Ultimate Care

Winter-Ready Hands and Nails: Top 3 Tips for Ultimate Care

As the colder weather sets in, our enthusiasm for winter grows, but unfortunately, our hands and nails aren't as fond of it!

The combination of icy winds, snow, and central heating can spell disaster for the health of your hands and nails. It's all too easy to neglect their care, especially during the chilly months. To help you maintain strong and long nails throughout the season, we've compiled some essential tips for winter hand and nail care.

1. Hydrate

The cold weather often leads to dry and cracked skin, making it crucial to keep your hands hydrated. Invest in a rich, moisturising hand cream and make it a habit to apply it regularly. Look for products containing ingredients like shea butter and jojoba oil, as they provide intense hydration and help restore the skin's moisture barrier. 

Maintaining the health of your nails starts with prioritising your cuticles, a practice that should be consistently observed, particularly in colder weather. Incorporate the use of cuticle oil into your daily routine to ensure your nails remain healthy and well-hydrated.

For optimal results, we suggest applying cuticle oil and hand cream each night before bedtime, allowing your nails ample time to absorb the nourishing benefits overnight.

Finally, don't forget to drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin from the inside out. 

2. Protect 

Shield your hands from the winter elements by wearing gloves, especially when exposed to cold winds and snow. Gloves act as a protective barrier, preventing moisture loss and minimising the impact of harsh weather conditions on your nails. By keeping your hands covered, you'll maintain their natural moisture and protect your nails from becoming brittle. 

For extra care use our Hand Mask once a week. Enriched with a blend of natural extracts, vitamins, and antioxidants, to provide intense hydration and replenishment.  

3. Repair 

If your hands and nails have already endured some winter damage, it's time to focus on repair. With the winter bringing with it more brittle nails, it’s wise to keep your nails a little shorter to avoid snags and breaks. Be attentive to your nails, trimming any split ends and filing them regularly to maintain a strong and even shape.

For effective repair and protection against weak and damaged nails, consider integrating a deep conditioning Nail Booster treatment into your routine. This not only addresses existing issues but also acts as a preventative measure against future damage.

Take your nail care a step further by fortifying them with our Hard Gel, a highly versatile product designed to provide additional strength. This product not only strengthens your nails but also allows for the creation of short extensions up to 2mm. 

By following these three essential tips—hydrate, protect, and repair—you'll be well on your way to achieving winter-proof hands and nails that radiate health and vitality. Embrace the season with confidence, knowing that your hands are receiving the care they deserve.
