Manicure Aftercare Advice 1

1. Avoid Sauna or Swimming Pool

Try to avoid visiting (for the 24-48 hours) sauna or swimming pool, do not do paraffin therapy (avoid any sudden temperature changes). After the treatment, the natural nail adapts to the coating (nail polish, Shellac), in other words, “shrinkage” of the material. Therefore, it is advisable to do water related work (washing dishes, floors, etc.) with rubber gloves and if possible later.

2. Use hand cream regularly

Keep hand cream at the kitchen and bathroom sink to remind yourself to apply after washing.

Frequent use of hand cream, will keep skin and cuticles moisturised.

Massage the hands and cuticles each evening with a rich hand cream just before going to bed.
