You probably heard of the drying effects of the winter season on our skin. Continuous exposure to dry heat from central heating deprives the skin of moisture and makes us need to take special care of it. But what then happens to the feet? Have you ever thought of taking “special care” of the toenails?
It’s been proven by scientists that nail polish is generally not the best thing for nails. Not only do many nail products (not all) contain toxic substances, but polish also blocks air supply to the nail. And the winter climate is not the only thing drying the feet out. If worn for too long, the pigment of the nail polish soaks into the top layers of the nail and deprives it of moisture.
But don’t get too scared too fast. Creating a little detox for your nails can make them feel healthy again. SO WHY DO THE DETOX IN WINTER?
Winter is the time when most triggers for infection and nail problems appear. Tight shoes and socks create exactly the kind of warm and humid environment where most fungi thrive. And the polish blanket covering your nail makes it even easier for the infection to hide.
Moreover, coming back to the drying effect of the nail polish, as it soaks into the nail, it loses its natural color and thinners.
The bottom line – choose classic pedicure in winter. Giving your toenails a vacation does not mean forgetting your feet altogether. A classic pedicure has a number of benefits, from maintaining the cuticle health to making your heels look smooth and soft.
If you can’t imagine your life without coloured toenails, make sure you choose a high-quality nail polish to relieve the effects on your tootsies. Karin offers a wide range of polish in different colors, that has near to zero nail damage and lasts as long as a regular one.
