Are Your Fake Nails Ruining Your Real Ones?

If you love wearing fake nails and you sport them frequently, you know how brittle they can make your natural nails over time. Your fakes are preventing them from breathing, and the adhesive as well as the removal process can be harsh on your nails. That being said, it’s never too late to rehab them with supplements and a little TLC.

First, think about giving your natural nails a break by steering clear of fakes for at least a week. During this period, treat them with a strengthening polish to ensure that they’re getting the necessary nutrients.

Next, Oprah.com recommends protecting your hands with gloves during household chores and moisturizing them frequently, especially at the cuticles. In addition, be sure to exercise grooming tactics such as nail clipping and filing to keep them in shape.

Finally, the Mayo Clinic claims that it’s crucial to avoid picking at your nails or the skin surrounding them as they recover. Use hand cream to smooth over your skin and prevent irritating hangnails from forming.

After you restore your natural nails to their beautiful state, you may never want to wear fake ones again!
