My hand and nail care

Hi ladies,
I used to get acrylic nails done every 3 weeks. This has damaged my nails so much and so they chip and break very easy. A few weeks ago one of my nails ripped so far, it started bleeding, which was pretty painful! I decided I needed to take care of my hands and nails.
❤ Daily Care
I always have a hand cream on me and I try to moisturise my hands all day, especially after washing them. Currently I'm using a hand cream by L'Occitane in Cherry Blossom. The cream has a light, floral scent and sinks quickly into the skin, which is ideal. At night I like to moisturise my cuticles with the Nuxe oil or with the Elizabeth Arden eight hour cream. 

❤ Every two to three days
Every time I take of my nail polish, I file my nails with a glass nail file by Herôme. Sometimes I will use a nailclipper. Then, I moisturise my nails with a hydrating nail gel also by Herôme, which I let this sink into my nails before I polish them. When I use this gel, I instantly see the result. Once in a while, I will scrub my hands if I feel the need to.

My nails are in such better condition and I really think they are repairing from all the damage. So I can say that my hand and nail care routine really helps!

What is your hand and nail care routine?

  3. Ooh sounds painful girl! Take care of your nails! My nails are really brittle and break easily too (and I don't even wear acrylics, so don't feel bad).

  4. I honestly don't really have a nail care routine. But I don't get my nails done, or paint them that often, so they stay pretty healthy. I think I lucked out with my hands/nails!

  6. I am so bad on my hands. It's all those diapers I change. I just try to moisturize as much as possible!
