If not, you can simply follow some of the healthy ways to have healthy nails in winter. And of course, end it with pretty and healthy nails with easy at-home nail art ideas.
#1 Regular Manicures at Home
Every 10-15 days, soak your hands in warm water for about 10 minutes and follow up with a scrub & a hydrating moisturizer.
#2 At-Home Nail Care With Nail Serum and Moisturizer
You can even use almond oil as your nail serum which is good for nail growth, strength, and overall health & shine.
#3 Never Skip Hand & Nail Cream after Washing Hands
You will thank us when you realize how much this helps keep your nails healthy & your hands looking young. You can always use coconut oil, olive oil, or almond oil for this.
#4 Use Cuticle Remover/Pusher & Vitamin C Serum Regularly
This will keep the required hydration intact & minimize cuticle tear & painful in-growth.
#5 Always Use Nail Primer before Applying Nail Polish
This will protect your nails from chemicals in nail paints, and keep them smooth & hydrated.
#6 Never Apply Nail Polish without a Base Coat
It saves the nails from damage & staining from the nail paint. Also, it helps the nail color stay for longer, and of course, look smoother.
#7 Try Using Lighter Shades of Nail Polish
Especially if you wear nail polish regularly, this will save the nails from discoloration and yellowing.
#8 Work on Nail Health on the Inside
Eat healthy—not just for nail health, but also for overall health including skin and hair. You’d be surprised how helpful soaked almonds & walnuts, and a protein-rich diet can be for you.
#9 Take Care to File Nails Correctly
Be careful not to over-file nails, which could be very painful, especially during harsh winters.
#10 Wear Gloves, If You Can
Cold winds can make nails weak & brittle. If it’s possible, try to protect your nails from it. Try wearing more covered footwear like boots and ballet shoes for toenail health.
