Chipping and peeling nails got you down? Sometimes it seems like no matter how carefully you apply the polish, it doesn’t last! Here, NYC celeb manicurist and Advisor to Dermelect Cosmeceuticals, Elle, gives her tips for caring for your nails.
1. Avoid fragranced lotions like the plague in the winter! If you can smell it, it contains alcohol which leads to drying and chaffing.
2. Be sure to protect your nails with a base or top coat (like Dermelect’s Launchpad Nail Strengthener). Taking this important extra step locks in the moisture your nails need to stay healthy.
3. When your nail polish starts to chip, it’s best to remove it completely and repaint your nails. As your polish chips, bits of your nails flake off with it!
4. Applying cuticle cream to your tips is a crucial step in your beauty regimen. Using creams like Dermelect’s Rejuvenail Cuticle Cream keeps your cuticles moisturized, healthy, and protected from the elements.
