A BASIC GUIDE TO HELP MEN TAKE CARE OF THEIR NAILS

TAKING CARE OF HANDS AT HOME


Hands say a lot about a man. Sure they’re not the first thing folks notice, but they’re usually the initial part people come into actual contact with. And whether shaking, high-fiving or caressing, it’s beyond important they communicate the right message.

Well-groomed hands can be achieved in a number of ways, chief amongst them being regular professional or at-home manicures. No matter what route one goes, two daily action items are essential to maintain mitt integrity:

 

 

 



APPROPRIATE HAND WASHING

Just like the face, hands need to be regularly cleansed to remove grit and grime. An added item that necessitates washing is the need to eliminate the pesky germs and more that lead to infection, etc. Quality hand washes are recommended for use and are usually less drying and harsh than regular soap.

 

MEGA MOISTURIZING 

Hands take a pounding, whether via hard work or the elements. Restore the vital nutrients hands need to stay healthy and looking good by generously applying a quality hand cream several times a day. Nobody wants to look at or shake “alligator hands.”


Should a professional manicure be too much to “hand-le,” simply bolt the door and do it yourself at home. Here’s how:

THE AT-HOME MANICURE

  • WASH & SOFTEN UP: Start out by washing your hands with a quality hand wash to disinfect and remove grit and grime. Then, soak both hands in a bowl of warm water to soften the nails and nail beds.
  • GET UNDER THERE: Clean underneath each nail with a high-end file to remove the jammed- in dirt and slime that just ain’t attractive or sanitary. Quickly wash hands again.
  • GIVE EM’ A TRIM: Individually trim each nail with a strong, durable trimmer, starting each nail in the middle and then rounding off to the sides. It’s ideal to leave a thin, white strip on the end of each nail.
  • BE SMOOTH: Smooth the edge of each nail using a nail fileor emery board. Go one way with the file, not back and forth like a saw. This will smooth the surface and leave nails with a touch of shine.
  • GET CREAMED: Seal the deal by massaging a moisturizing hand cream all over hands and wrists.
  • BE PREPARED: Grab all your nail care tools in one set to save some cash and keep them all in one convenient, harder-to-lose pouch.
