Aftercare – Hands & Nails

  • Regular nightly use of cuticle massage cream-massaged well into cuticles and surrounding skin.
  • Wear rubber gloves for household work, when gardening or coming into contact with detergents.
  • Use mild soaps or hand cleansers, which are not too drying. n Remove rings before washing the hands so that soap does not build up behind them and irritate the skin.
  • Rinse the hands thoroughly with lukewarm water and dry them properly with a soft towel. Skin creases which are left damp can crack and become sore and chapped.
  • Always use hand cream or lotion after washing to lubricate and soften the skin.
  • Avoid knocking the nails on hard objects.
  • Keep the hands warm by wearing gloves in winter.
  • Always wear a basecoat with a hardener (a basecoat protects and will stop the nail plate staining).
  • Keep a supply of hand cream close to the kitchen sink and bathroom. Use each time the hands are washed or rinsed.
  • Eat a good sensible diet with plenty of vitamins B and C each day.
  • Always have regular manicures 2 to 3 times a week to keep nails stronger and hands soft.
