True or false: 5 misconceptions about nails
Categories: Nail care, Nails Art, Women Beauty

You thought you knew everything (or almost) about your nails and do what it takes to always have perfect hands? Know that there is however an anthology of received ideas on the subject! We take stock of 5 general points.

1. White spots on the nails are a sign of a lack of calcium

False. You’ve been trying to fill your calcium quota for years by enjoying dairy products. In fact, there is nothing to do with the little white spots that appeared on the nail. It would be due to the small shocks or traumas that the nails undergo!

2. Nails grow slower in winter

True. It turns out that the cold, by stimulating the keratin less than the summer heat, limits the growth of the nail. It is therefore normal to notice that your nails grow faster in summer!

3. Varnish damages nails

False. If the nails are well protected by a base before applying the varnish, they are safe. So, be sure to moisturize your nails as you do your hands, using a specific cream or oil. This will help them to be less fragile and to solidify.

4. Lemon whitens nails

True and false. Lemon is actually very good at helping the nails whiten… but it’s an ephemeral result. Also, applying lemon too often to your nails is likely to damage them: in the long term, the acidity can soften or weaken them.

5. It is good to cut the cuticles

False. And it really is better to avoid! These small skins at the base of the nail protect it from moisture and bacteria. Instead, push them back with a wooden stick instead of cutting them and promoting infections. Your nails will thank you.

OK! You now have a new understanding of the 5 misconceptions about your nails, so bring your manicure supplies and take good care of them! If you don’t have, please have a look at our nail supply store online, where there are all kinds of nail beauty products.
