How to Take Care of Your Nails During The Summer

As the temperatures rise and the days grow longer, summer brings its own set of challenges when it comes to nail care. From sun exposure to frequent swimming, your nails may be affected by certain factors. However, with the right care and attention, you can keep your nails looking healthy all summer long. Here are some tips for maintaining healthy and beautiful nails during the summer months.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Just like your skin, your nails can become dry and brittle in the summer heat. Make sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Additionally, apply our PURE NAILS Cuticle Oil daily to keep your nails and surrounding skin hydrated and supple.

Protect Against UV Damage

UV rays from the sun can cause discoloration and weakening of the nails over time. To protect your nails, apply sunscreen to your hands and nails whenever you’re spending time outdoors. Look for a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating.

Practice Safe Manicures and Pedicures

If you’re visiting a nail salon for a manicure or pedicure, make sure that proper sanitation practices are followed to prevent the spread of bacteria and fungus. At PURE NAILS, we prioritize your nail health along with cleanliness and hygiene! Additionally, avoid cutting or pushing back your cuticles aggressively, as this can increase the risk of infection. Instead, schedule an appointment with our professional nail technicians to take care of your nails.

Protect Your Nails in Chlorinated Water

Chlorine from swimming pools can be harsh on your nails, causing them to become dry and brittle. Before swimming, if you do not already have nail polish on, apply a protective coat of clear nail polish to create a barrier between your nails and the chlorine. After swimming, rinse your nails thoroughly with fresh water to remove any chlorine residue, and apply our PURE NAILS Cuticle Oil to replenish lost moisture.
