Why should women care for their nails as they age?

I wrote a similar blog some months ago and most women that reacted through comments posted on my social media pages believed they should pay more attention to their nails as they grow older. Donna says “I should keep myself well groomed as I age so I can look my best”. Smith says “I didn’t think I should care about such things when I grow older but I find myself doing so”.

Both said almost the same thing and I agree with them.

Why stress your hair and skin care when you can DIY?

MONSTER PIMPLES:

Problem: A volcano just erupted on your nose in the form of a pimple and you have a big dance in a few hours.

Solution: Don’t pick the pimple or make it pop; doing this will only make it more glaring. Use a gentle cleanser to wash it and apply some salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Use a mild layer of oil-free cover-up, which won’t obstruct your pores and cause more pimple breakouts.

PEELING SKIN:

Problem: You got yourself burnt will trying to get a tan. Your skin is now glowing red and peeling.

Solution: A moisturizer containing natural aloe-vera may help soothe the agony sensation and make your cracking skin a bit unnoticeable. Peeling usually continues for a while, as your entire body eliminates the broken layer. To prevent skin burning and enhance your skin’s health, use a broad spectrum sunscreen when you leave the house and don’t forget to re-apply it after staying a few hours under the sun.

 

HAIRY ARMS:

Problem: Your arms look like they belong to King Kong!

Solution: Investigate and find out if your family members were hairy. Teenagers can idolize certain bodily features that most individuals might consider absurd. If you still want to complete the task, try a depilatory, which gets rid of hair using some chemicals. Seek medical advice as to which brand is best for you. Use a moisturiser subsequently to avoid discomfort or kiara sky nails. Shaving the hairs would only make them, grow stubbly so that isn’t recommended.
