Funky Nail Problems Solved
You can beat out ridges, fungus, white spots and other skin problems with these tools
Cause: Constantly applying and removing nail polish will cause nails to look dry, according to Schoon. And frequent hand washing can also contribute to nail peeling.
Fix: "If you keep doing new manicures, you'll end up removing the natural oils that maintain moisture in the skin and nail plate," Schoon says. Instead of switching hues every other day, keep the color you have. He also recommends adding a few drops of oil to your nail polish remover to counter its drying effects, and he suggests rubbing even more nail oil onto the nails after removing polish. To solve the water damage issue, wear rubber gloves when washing dishes and keep hands/nails constantly moisturized with a rich cream. Try Kiehl's Unusually Rich-But Not Greasy At All-Hand Cream With SPF 10, $15.50).
