The Top 10 Worst Nail Habits!
1. CUTTING INTO CORNERS
CUTTING INTO CORNERS to remove ingrown nails can lead to recurrent ingrown toenails that can become infected. Instead: Always trim straight across!
2. TRIMMING THE CUTICLES
TRIMMING THE CUTICLES can remove a layer of protection that prevents infections such as fungus and bacterial infections. Instead, lightly push back a cuticle, but do not be too aggressive and avoid trimming or cutting.
3. USING ACETONE
USING ACETONE nail polish remover can strip the nails of natural oils and minerals. Instead: use Dr.’s REMEDY Enriched REMEDY Remover
4. LIFTING UP A NAIL
LIFTING UP A NAIL to clean underneath can cause it to permanently disfigure and can allow bacteria or fungus to enter the nail bed causing infection. Instead: Wash hands and nails frequently.
5. CONSTANT USE OF GEL
CONSTANT USE OF GEL/shellacs that are finished under a UV lamp may dry out the nails. Melanoma from UV light is always a risk beneath nails as well. Instead: Use long-lasting Dr.’s REMEDY Enriched Nail Polish
6. BITING YOUR NAILS
BITING YOUR NAILS can lead to infections and bleeding of the nails and/or face.
Instead: Break the habit!
7. AGGRESSIVE CUTTING
AGGRESSIVE CUTTING of nails short can lead to unwanted infections. Instead: Trim monthly.
8. SKIPPING BASE COAT.
SKIPPING BASE COAT. Base coat is important for protecting your nails from staining and helping the polish adhere. Instead: Use BASIC Base Coat
by Dr.’s REMEDY.
9. BUFFING TOO MUCH
BUFFING TOO MUCH or too often can lead to thinner, weaker nails. Instead: Buff only weekly during a manicure!
10. PICKING OFF POLISH
PICKING OFF POLISH can weaken your nails, because often the top layer of your nail comes off with the polish, resulting over time in nails that are thinner, weaker, and more prone to peeling. Instead: use Dr.’s REMEDY Enriched REMEDY Remover
