The manicure master and creator of the popular youtube channel Masha Create told why folk remedies do not work in nail care and what procedures will actually improve the condition of the nail plate.
If your nails are peeling, find the reason
The condition of nails, hair and skin is a reflection of the internal processes of the body. If your nails have been strong all your life, and then began to exfoliate, find out the reason. Think about what external influences the nail plate was exposed to, maybe the gel polish was applied and removed incorrectly, or did nail cosmetics play a role?
Past illnesses, changes in hormonal levels (during pregnancy, for example), as well as vitamin deficiency - all this affects the quality of the nails. I do not call for self-medication and, relying on the responsibility of the reader, I would like to advise you to drink vitamins for hair and nails twice a year. If you have a problem, add collagen, chondroitin, gelatin to your diet.
The number of keratin layers of the nail is genetically laid down, and you will not influence it with any vitamins, tablets and varnishes. Many girls try to improve the condition of the nails with folk remedies. Rubbing lemon juice into the nail, trays with all sorts of nonsense or wax massage do not work! And also do not trust varnishes and bases for gel polish, which are written "with keratin", "with vitamins", "with calcium." All these components will not be absorbed into the nail in any way. This is pure marketing!
IBX nail strengthening system
The system consists of two tools that can only be used in pairs. IBX repair restores the nail plate from the inside, while IBX protects the top layer of the nail plate and consolidates the result from using the first product.
If you do the procedure as a course, the nails really stop exfoliating, they become stronger, and the effect can be cumulative. Once every two weeks, go through the procedure before applying the gel polish. But at the same time it is important that the removal of gel polish (at home or in the salon) is carried out correctly.
During the course of strengthening procedures, it is necessary that the funds are in contact with the nail plate. Therefore, you need to either abandon the gel polish (but you can use the usual one), or remove the gel polish without cutting it off, but soaking it.
For lamination, an insoluble coating is used, which, when applied correctly, will remain on the nail and protect it from the chemical effects of the remover and mechanical damage during removal. I told you more about the procedure here.
Means for "repair" nails
If you need to make the plate more durable or repair a cracked nail, ask the technician to use acrylic powder, silk patches or the FOX Cover & Repair, which I developed in conjunction with the FOX brand.
Aligning the nail plate
If you just need to strengthen the nail for applying regular or gel polish, ask the master to align the plate with gel, biogel, or a regular base for gel polish. This is a very simple procedure, but effective if you are worried about the condition of your nails, regularly applying gel polish on them.
