Our nails are made up of a hard protein called keratin. Did you know that?
Our nails are very crucial to us as they help protect the ends of the fingers and toes from any trauma and assist us in picking up small things.
Perhaps over the past century or so, nails have grown a lot of importance cosmetically. This is when manicuring came into prominence.
Even today, a manicure is the weekly regimen of most men and women. After all, whether at work or socially, your hand and your smile are the first to be noticed by strangers, acquaintances and friends.
Have a manicure once a month by a professional manicurist because only he or she knows best how to keep your hands looking and feeling beautiful.
Here are some tips for your manicure:
a. Restrict this to about 20 minutes each week in which you can begin by removing old nail polish with nail polish remover on a small swab of cotton.
b. Move from the base of the nail to the tip, until all the nail polish has been removed.
c. Soak your hands in warm, soapy water for a few minutes to remove all dirt.
d. Now, clean under the edges of your nails with orangewood stick.
e. Now apply clear nail polish.
f. Lastly, apply a dollop of moisturizing cream or lotion to your hands and cuticles to stop your nails from splitting.
