I find that my nails flake and peel especially during the winter months why is this ?

This is caused by the dehydration in the nail plate; use rubber gloves when doing household chores. To instantly re-hydrate the nails, start using nail oil such as our Dare Cuti-Oil, which is rich in Vitamin E use this regularly and steer clear of acetone polish removers.

Buffing the nails can help remove the dehydration – like exfoliating your skin.

Usually caused by dehydration. Moisturise frequently with a nail or hand and nail cream especially one rich in panthenol which helps prevent brittleness.

If you can find a good nail technician overlays are a great way to strengthen poor nails, but if you want to stay 'au natural' then have regular manicures, gently buff the ridges smooth and keep them short. Wearing your nails too long can cause you to catch and break them.

Ingredients these conditions should avoid or use:

  • If you have brittle nails then make sure your products do not contain toluene or formaldehyde - our CM nail polish is toluene & formaldehyde free.
  • If your nails are dry, you must steer clear of nail-polish removers that contain acetone, as this will dry out nails further.
  • If you have oily nail beds you will find base coats cannot adhere to the nail properly. In cases like this a polish remover containing acetone will temporarily dehydrate the nail bed allowing polish to adhere. I usually recommend using our Dare Perfect Balance, this will remove the oils and replace the pH in natural nails. If unsure of your nail type a professional nail technician will be able to tell you.
