Your Winter Nail Relief
To keep up with COVID-19 guidelines, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that you should clean your hands often, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose. While you should wash your hands with soap and water, if it’s not possible to do so, you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. While constant hand washing and hand-sanitizing are two of the best ways to protect you and your family from COVID-19, these practices are also doing a number on your hands and nails.
Since you’re already wreaking havoc on your nails, you definitely don’t want to add chemically-infused nail polish to the mix. Not only are DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde damaging to the health of your nails, but they’re harmful to your whole body as well.
A vegan nail polish coat can help protect your nails from the daily wear and tear from constant handwashing and hand sanitizing. Not only will nail polish add a protective barrier that helps prevent breaking and peeling, but vegan nail polish, full of vitamins and minerals, can shield your nails from both safety practices and harsh winter weather.
As a bonus tip, if you can use soap and water, do it! Hand sanitizer and other alcohol-based products not only take off the top coat of your nail polish but fade the color as well, making them more susceptible to chipping.
