If there’s one thing I’ve always struggled with it’s maintaining strong nails. But, what I discovered a few years ago is the importance of maintaining good cuticle health to ensure your nails are as happy as can be!
I was recommended this Jessica Phenomen Oil for my cuticles by a beauty therapist, and it is the most amazing thing!! She told me that if I use one thing on my nails, make it this, as it’s so strengthening.
It firstly smells absolutely divine (I wish I there was a smell cam). And even better, this little pot goes such a long way!! I’ve had this for a good year now and it still looks untouched. I was told to use a small amount of this everyday before bed, but it’s more like once or twice a week depending on when I remember! But, this still is a good amount for leaving your cuticles feeling nourished. I basically take the applicator and dab a small amount on each cuticle then gently rub in. I also use the Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment to make sure my hands also feel super moisturised. The combination of the two products tricks my hands into thinking they’ve spent a day at a spa!
A great alternative to this oil that I’ve found is this Vaseline intensive care cream, which is a two in one targeted hand and nail cream. It’s not as effective as using the oil alongside a hand cream, but if you use this daily it will definitely make a difference!
My final tip for helping your nails to be as strong as can be it to use a strengthening nail polish. I use this Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Nail Polish either alone, or as a base coat if I’m painting my nails. If you want this to act as a targeted treatment then build up layers every other day. I don’t have the patience to do this often, but when I do I can really see the results! Would love to hear if of any other cuticle targeted products!
