Did you know that our nails are actually skin? Nails are the last three layers of the five layers of the epidermis and – just as with our various skin types and conditions – nails too can become adversely affected by exposure to the increasingly inclement weather and the drying effects of our central heating systems. If you invest in the benefits of a good moisturiser, you’ll likely have noticed your skin improve: the skin is less dry, less obviously wrinkled, perhaps younger looking! Without moisturiser, the problems quickly start to appear. Keeping a regular skin care routine ensures optimum results are maintained, without the need to resort to more extreme, hasty and risky measures that have, as you’ll no doubt have observed, varying and debatable degrees of success.
A maintenance and regular treatment plan is as important for nails as it is for the care of your complexion. As well as suffering the adverse effects of our heating systems and the contrasting cooler weather outdoors, nails are also significantly affected by diet, exposure to harsh chemicals and detergents, the general condition of our health is also extremely important and – the bugbear of our times – age has a huge influence on our nails. It is not by accident that our nails become drier and thinner or more rigid and less flexible as we advance a little in years but, even in much younger people, nails can manifest a multitude of disappointing and frustrating conditions, for which there are many possible causes. After eliminating the obvious: any possible underlying medical explanations, checking for deficiencies in diet or simply kick-starting or fine-tuning a regular exercise regime, where the condition of the nails still continue to fail to produce any obvious signs of improvement then, in exasperation, it is a natural progression for many to reach for topical treatments and remedies to satisfy the desire to restore the appearance of the nails. To many, being able to extend a well-manicured hand, without the embarrassment of flaking, thinning, ridged or discoloured nails grabbing the limelight, is as important as the outfit we select to wear, the quality of the shoes we invest in, and even the condition of our hair. Having healthy looking nails is key! For many, any detraction from a polished presentation is unforgivable, almost on a par with an admission of poor personal hygiene, imperfect etiquette and manners or a substandard education.
