How to make sure your nails stay healthy after removing fake nails

Give your nails a little TLC with these tips.

From weak nails to having your nails looking a bit ‘dehydrated’; your nail aftercare is very important in ensuring you maintain healthy nails.

Here are some tips on how you can repair damaged nails after taking out acrylics.

Give your nails a break

You know how you give your hair a break after braiding for a while, then you need to do the exact same thing for your nails.

Right after getting your acrylics out, make sure to give your nails some time to breath before deciding to put a fresh set of acrylics or nail polish.

Try home-made recipes

Try out home remedies to help repair your nails.

For instance, Instyle recommends using treatments such as Vitamin E, olive and coconut oil to help care for your cuticles. This helps in making sure that your cuticles receive the necessary nutrients for healthy nail growth.

You can also soak your nails in olive oil, milk, orange juice or garlic oil for 10-15 minutes a couple of days a week.

Get a nail strengthener

There are numerous nail strengtheners that are easily accessible in chemists or supermarkets that can greatly help in repairing nails.

Do not take your acrylic nails out by yourself

There is a reason why manicurists exist so take advantage of yours especially when it comes to taking out your acrylics.

They will help advise on how to properly take care of your nails.

Keep them short

Opt to keep your nails short when you eventually take out your acrylics. This is because your nails may be a bit weak after removal therefore unable to handle length.

Don’t leave them on for too long

Acrylic nails are not supposed to stay on for too long. Experts recommend having them on for two weeks max.

There you have it, now go ahead and do the right thing for your nails.
