Every now and then, the internet starts roaring with beauty myths. And when that happens, it’s time for the experts to enter the scene and set the record straight.

We’ve been seeing a lot of nail-related myths circulating the web lately. In this blog, our nail technicians are debunking the most common myths out there.

Keep reading, pull out a notepad if you need to, and start making some changes to your nail care and styling routine! Let’s begin.

 

Myth #1: Cutting Your Cuticles Is Okay

Nope, it’s not! People might be getting increasingly aggressive with their cuticles, but it’s time to take a step back and look at their purpose. Cuticles are part of the skin. They play a big role in keeping bacteria out and preventing any infection. If you keep trimming, cutting, and pulling at your cuticles, you’ll inadvertently increase the risk of infection.

Stop messing with your cuticles and start giving them some TLC! Moisturize your cuticles using a good quality cuticle oil to keep them soft and healthy. Trust us; you don’t want to damage your nail’s natural barrier against the bad guys, namely, yeast, bacteria, fungal infections, and microbes.

 

Myth #2: Diet Doesn’t Really Affect Nail Health

Wrong, it does! You are what you eat. If you consume a lot of processed, packaged, manufactured, and junk food, your nail growth and overall nail health will suffer.

Incorporate more fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and lean meat into your diet. As your nails get the nutrients they need to toughen up, you’ll see the growth and health for yourself.

Your nails will grow longer, look shiny, get thicker, and become more resilient. Consume foods that are high in biotin, iron, magnesium, protein, vitamin C, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin A.

 

Myth #3:Press-On Nails Are Bad for Your Nails

Nope, they’re not! Press-on nails are actually a great alternative to nail polish. Frequent polish removal can leave your nails looking dry and brittle. The damage will be worse if you use an acetone-based nail polish remover. In comparison, press-on nail glue is a lot gentler.

Make sure you moisturize your nails between press-on applications. When you buy high-quality press-on nails that come with safe, gentle, and toxin-free glue, you have nothing to worry about. Experiment with different nail designs and styles without feeling anxious about nail health.
