Damaged nails? weakened? What should you do?

Repeated manicures, frequent applications of semi-permanent gels, excessive sanding and filing, use of poor quality products, overexposure to humidity… not only alter the quality of our nails, but can also prevent them from lasting well. It is therefore essential to give them a moment of break and establish a real care routine in your daily life.

The nail expert Maryton will give you 5 steps to offer regularly to your nails before applying a treatment base, after applying a semi for lasting maintenance of the health of the nail and to make it easier to hold varnishes.

Step 1: Prepare the nail for treatment

File your nails, with the softer nail file, and leave a few drops of cuticle oil to act before gently pushing back your cuticles to obtain a clean nail contour. Then use the preparation file, always in the direction of growth, to open the scales of the nail, activate cellular exchanges, prevent its splitting and prepare it for treatment.

Step 2: Nourish deeply

Apply the cuticle oil generously, massage the nails and cuticles. Then wrap them in a hot towel for 5 minutes to promote absorption.

Step 3: Degrease

Massage your hands, using the excess oil, then degrease your nails with a cotton pad soaked in gentle nail remover.

Step 4: Regenerate & hydrate

Finish the treatment by applying a drop of moisturizer to each nail then massage gently until completely absorbed.

Step 5: Treat & strengthen

Finalize your manicure by applying a treatment base adapted to the nature of your nails. Damaged nails, soft nails, ridged nails, brittle nails… each type of nail deserves specific care.

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I recommend investing in some professional manicure sets to care for your hands.
