Men who take great pride in their personal grooming, choice of clothes and general appearance, sometimes forget the importance of taking care of their nails. Many men think that nail care is time-consuming and expensive, but this simply isn’t true.
Your nails are always on show and can help to make a positive first impression when meeting someone new.
Below we share our quick nail care guide for men –
- Give your nails a good clean
When wanting to take care of your nails, the first step should be to ensure that they are kept clean. Using a nail brush when in the shower is a great way to remove any loose dirt. Keep the brush somewhere you can see it, so that it becomes part of your daily routine. Once out of the shower you can then apply a nourishing hand cream to keep the skin around your nails soft.
- Trim those nails
After cleaning your nails it is important that your nails are regularly trimmed. This will prevent your nails from breaking or snagging. Be sure not to cut into the nail bed, the pink part, and only cut the white. Invest in a good pair of nail scissors or clippers which will make the job much easier.
- Use a nail file
Once you have cut your nails, you then need to use a nail file to make sure that your nails are smooth. It’s quick to do and will stop your nails from snagging on clothing or ripping which can damage the nail bed.
- Look after your cuticles
Many men forget about cuticle care. The cuticle is the skin at the bottom of the nail bed. This needs to be pushed back, which not only improves the appearance of the nail, but will help to create a healthier nail. Always use a blunt nail tool and after showering, as the skin will be softer.
- Get a monthly manicure
A monthly manicure is great for keeping on top of your nail care and will make your job much easier. A manicure will involve cuticle care, meaning you won’t need to do this at home. You can also have a protective coating applied to your nails to make them stronger and less prone to breaking.
