4 Easy Hacks for Healthier Nails

Good nails make us feel sexy, youthful, and more put together. A lot of us associate perfect nails with our bi-monthly trip to the nail salon. But did you know that most of your crucial nail maintenance is formed by your daily habits? In addition to our lifestyle choices, our stylistic choices at the nail salon have a big impact on the overall health of our natural nails. Have your healthiest hands and feet yet with these 4 easy hacks that will keep your nails in tip-top shape!

  1. Take your vitamins daily.

If you aren’t eating enough fatty proteins, nuts or veggies, keeping consistent with your vitamins guarantees that you are getting the proper nutrients to grow strong, healthy nails. Biotin, in particular, can restore weak, brittle nails.

Besides biotin, some of the best vitamins for nails are:

•   vitamin b12

•   iron

•   magnesium

•   vitamin c

•   fish oil

Make sure to be consistent! Follow this tip along with proper hydration for best results. 

     2.  Keep your nails & cuticles moisturized.

Keeping your nails & cuticles moisturized is a way to prevent cracked skin, hangnails, and dry cuticles. Applying SNS’s Vitamin Oil can be a daily at-home routine.  Application is simple as you apply it 1 or 2 times a day by rubbing a small amount into cuticles. It contains natural ingredients such as safflower oil and sil protein. It supports healthier nails and cuticles with added vitamins A, D3, B5, E, and Calcium.  Getting supple, strong cuticles is a daily process but well worth the result.

    3. Choose healthier gel or dip manicures.

If you’re a fan of acrylic nails, long term use can harm natural nails and make them thin and dehydrated. The chemicals and removal process are both harsh. Choose a more up-to-date gel or dip manicure. Healthy Gelstar is our gel line and promoted nail health with added nutrients. We recommend you use it with our safer hybrid UV/LED light.  Our Dip Powder is a no-UV light solution that actually makes your nails healthier with

added vitamins in the bases and sealers. 

   4. Limit the chemicals that go on your nails.

Treat your nails as gently as you would the skin on your face. Your nails are equally as delicate and should be cared for as properly. There is no need for harsh chemicals, alcohols, or irritants to be on your nail bed, EVER! 

SNS products do not have common nail salon irritants and chemicals:

•   Formaldehyde resin

•   Xylene

•   Camphor

•   Toluene

•   Formaldehyde

•   Synthetic Sulfate

•   Triethanolamine

May your road to healthy nails be enriching!
