6 Practical Tips To Maintain Healthy Skin, Hair and Nails

1. Reduce Wrinkles

Did you know that how you sleep can affect skin aging? Daily side or stomach sleeping may contribute to the development of ‘sleep lines’ on the face and chest.

2. Remove Makeup and Hydrate Your Eyelids

Petroleum jelly is inexpensive and can treat many skin problems all over your body. It’s an effective way to remove your eye makeup and rehydrate the eyelid skin. Apply a thin coat of jelly, wipe it off with a tissue or gentle cloth, and gently rub in any residual jelly into the skin to rehydrate overnight.

3. Minimize Irritated Skin When First Using a Retinoid

Retinoids can cause irritation for those who haven’t built up a tolerance, so dermatologists suggest introducing them into your skin care regimen slowly. To minimize these effects, try using retinoid products two to three times per week for a couple of weeks or so. If you don’t see any excessive irritation, then you can apply the product more often.

4. Revive Dry Hands and Brittle Nails

Repeated washing and using hand sanitizers can seriously dry out your hands and nails. Use an ointment-based moisturizer, such as petroleum jelly on your hands, nails, and cuticles after every time you wash.

5. Avoid Developing Nail Fungus

Athlete’s foot and sweating are major risk factors that can lead to the development nail fungus, frequently causing nails to thicken, lift and turn yellow. Keep feet clean and dry, look for signs of fungal infection, and treat any fungal skin infections of the feet promptly to avoid infecting the toenails.

6. Boost Hair Health

Getting your hair cut on a regular basis will make it grow healthier because it removes the hair that would split. However, it will not make your hair grow faster because hair growth occurs below the level of the skin and is not affected by cutting.
