Don’t let the ravages of winter wreak havoc on your nails! Keep your fingertips in tip-top shape with these three solutions to common nail problems:
Problem: Dry, ragged cuticles and nails
Solution: Moisture! The dry winter air can really do a number on your nails and cuticles, leaving them frayed and dehydrated. Be sure to keep them trimmed and moisturized – try Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme for a refreshing and soothing way to protect nails and cuticles from the perils of winter.
Problem: Splits and breaks
Solution: Nourishment! Along with moisture, nourishment is vital to the health and strength of nails. Helpful nutrients include biotin, a member of the B-vitamin family, as well as MSM and hyaluronic acid. If you’re not getting enough of these nutrients from food, consider supplementing your diet with a hair, skin and nails formula.
Solution: Manicure! (Like you needed an excuse?) If your nails are looking “blah,” it may be time for a cut and color. Want the salon look on a shoestring budget? Do it yourself! Grab a manicure kit and a bottle of your favorite natural nail polish today.
