As the sun shines and the temperatures rise, it's important to pay special attention to the health of your nails and skin during the summer months. The combination of exposure to chemicals and excessive sun can take a toll on their well-being. In this blog post, we'll explore essential dos and don'ts to help you maintain healthy, beautiful nails and skin all summer long. Let's dive in and ensure you have a season filled with radiance and confidence.
DO Minimize Sun Exposure
While basking in the sun can be enjoyable, excessive sun exposure is known to be damaging to the skin. However, it's worth noting that prolonged sun exposure can also impact the appearance and color of your nails. To prevent fading and discoloration, consider using sunscreen on your hands and feet, or keep them shaded with an umbrella when spending long hours outdoors.
DON’T Expose Yourself to Chemicals
During the summer, we often encounter chemicals such as bug repellents and chlorine from swimming pools. These substances can be harsh and weaken your nails. Minimize your exposure to these chemicals whenever possible. If you do come into contact with them, consider using nourishing products to restore your skin and nail health, such as our Collagen Gloves With Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil. These moisturizing hand masks keep your hands ultra hydrated and protected.
DO Schedule Regular Pedicures
With the arrival of sandal season, it's important to keep your feet in tip-top shape. Regular pedicures help prevent and address common foot concerns such as calluses, corns, and dry heels. Aim to schedule a professional pedicure every four weeks, or more frequently if you're engaging in outdoor activities that may place extra strain on your feet. Be sure to bring your Pedi in a Box kit to your salon, or find a salon that uses VOESH products.
DON’T Forget to Moisturize
Keeping your hands and feet moisturized is crucial, especially during the summer months. The sand, saltwater, and open-toe shoe season can cause dryness and discomfort. Regularly moisturize your hands and feet using hydrating lotions or oils. Pay extra attention to your cuticles, using products like Collagen Gloves and Collagen Socks or Youth Therapy Elbow-High Gloves to keep them soft and supple.
DO Practice Foot Soaks & Exfoliation
In addition to regular pedicures, pamper your feet with foot soaks and gentle exfoliation. These practices help cleanse, refresh, and invigorate your feet, leaving them feeling revitalized. Consider using products like our intensive Peeling Socks and detoxifying Pedi In A Box O2 Fizz 5 Step for a soothing and rejuvenating experience. By incorporating these treatments into your routine, you'll enjoy cleaner, more comfortable feet between your pedicure appointments.
Embrace the joy and adventure of summer while taking care of your skin and nails. With proper attention and nourishment, they will thrive all season long. From getting regular VOESH pedicures to minimizing sun exposure, these tips will ensure your nails and skin are at their very best during all of your sunny day activities.
