Nail treatments & nail tools: All you need to know about nail care


In the world of self-care, we pay a lot of attention to our skin and hair, but we often overlook the importance of our nails. They play a crucial role in not only enhancing our appearance, but they are also a reflection of our overall health.

In this blog, we will delve into the importance of nail care and guide you on your journey to achieving healthy nails, covering all the tips, tricks, and nail treatments that are worth investing in!


The Importance Of Nail Care

Nail care is important for a number of reasons, your overall health being one of them. Your skin, hair and nails are made up of keratin. All three can indicate your overall health if you have an underlying health condition. Identifying a problem enables you to tailor your care routine to meet the needs of your nails. 

Taking good care of your nails will also help to prevent them from becoming weak or brittle, which can lead to a risk of infection or injury and of course, nail care will also enhance your overall appearance. Healthy and strong nails will give off a more clean aesthetic, making you feel more confident.

How To Keep Your Nails Healthy

Cleansing your nails: Cleansing is an important step in maintaining healthy nails. This can be easily done by using a gentle nail brush and soap to remove any dirt or bacteria from underneath your nails. This should be done regularly to help prevent any infections as well as keeping your nails looking fresh.

Nail Trimming techniques – Trimming your nails effectively is a key step that is often overlooked. It is worth investing in high quality nail clippers and scissors and using them to trim your nails regularly. Remember to avoid cutting too close to the skin to prevent any painful cuts. The Nail HQ Professional Manicure Set includes all the nail tools you need to cut nails smoothly and precisely and is safe and easy to use on both adults and children.

Invest in a High Quality Nail Strengthener: Nail strengtheners will restore your nails, providing them with essential hydration and nourishment they need. A strengthener will work as a protective barrier for your nails, whilst also imparting vitamins that will help promote nail growth. The Nail HQ Essentials Nail Strengthening treatment is enriched with a potent blend of Wheat Protein, Calcium, and Vitamin E. This works deep within the nail layers to stimulate growth and shield against potential damage.

Using cuticle oil: As any nail technician will tell you, purchase a good cuticle oil to keep your nails well nourished and hydrated. Regularly applying cuticle oil will promote both nail growth and strength. The Nail HQ Cuticle Oil is infused with enriching Vitamin E and Sweet Almond Oil, offering a treatment that deeply hydrates and revitalises your nail beds.Simply place a few drops of the oil onto your cuticles and gently massage into your nails daily for maximum results.

Consuming a balanced diet: Believe it or not, your diet plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy and strong nails. It is important to ensure you are getting the essential vitamins and minerals that will contribute to the overall health of your nails. B vitamins are well known for the benefits they offer nails. One in particular, Biotin, is essential for nail growth. You can keep your Biotin levels up by eating yoghurt, avocado, brown rice, sweet potato and flax seeds.

Nail Protection: consider using a pair of gloves when taking on daily tasks that are exposed to damage, for example any cleaning activities. Harsh chemicals can be damaging to our nails so it is important to keep them protected. 

Choose Nail-Friendly Products: When using nail polish or nail polish remover, opt for products that are acetone-free and formulated without harsh chemicals to prevent nail damage. The Nail HQ Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover – 235ml is infused with the enriching properties of Vitamin E and Panthenol, both ingredients are known for their nail-strengthening and cuticle-nourishing properties. Its soothing, nourishing action ensures that you can effortlessly remove every trace of nail polish, while being kind to your nails.
