Going beyond manicure and pedicure services, luxury nail spas today are as much about relaxing as it is about preening, with perks like champagne, chocolate and full-body massages. But on top of these well-deserved pampering sessions, daily care is needed
Get in the habit of using moisturisers on both your hands and cuticles to keep your nails hydrated and your hands supple, while preventing nasty hangnails. Look for moisturiser with Vitamin E. Wear gloves when cleaning to prevent your nails from coming into contact with excessive moisture and harsh chemicals, which may cause brittleness and discolouration. Don't file your nails right after a shower, as they are weaker and more likely to break. Also, file in one direction instead of back and forth.
