Manicure Magic: Transform Your Nails at Home This Fall

As the weather cools down and the leaves start to change, it's easy to get caught up in the excitement of Autumn. But before you dive headfirst into all of the fun activities that come with the season, there's one thing you should definitely make time for, and that’s taking care of your hands!

Your hands are an essential part of your body that you use every day, from typing on a keyboard to cooking dinner for your family. But despite all that hard work, they often get neglected when it comes to self-care. That's why it's crucial to take a few moments out of your busy day to pamper your hands and give yourself an at-home manicure. With a little bit of time and effort, you can transform your hands from rough and dry to soft and smooth. Here’s how to transform our nails at home this Fall.

Clean Your Nails With Polish Remover

To achieve a professional-quality manicure at home, follow the experts' lead and prioritize nail care just as much as the actual polishing process. This involves beginning with a high-quality acetone-free nail polish remover that not only effectively removes all traces of old polish, but also contains vital nutrients to nourish and fortify your nails while hydrating your cuticles. It's important to note that even if you aren't wearing any polish, it's still a good idea to wipe remover on each nail to eliminate any oils or grime that might interfere with the smooth application of polish (if using.)  After using the remover, remember to thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water.

Clip, File, and Push Back Cuticles

It's the perfect time to bring out your manicure kit. Start by clipping your nails if needed, and then use a gentle filing motion in one direction to achieve the desired shape, whether it be square, round, or somewhere in between. To achieve a smooth surface on your nails, gently use a nail buffer on the tops and sides of your nails instead of an emery board. Finally, push back your cuticles with an orange stick, which is also a great option for cleaning underneath nail tips. You’ll also want to avoid cutting your cuticles, as they protect your nails from bacteria!

Exfoliate Your Hands

Exfoliate hands, wrists, and forearms with a scrub that eliminates dead skin cells and replenishes moisture, like our Lemongrass Body Scrub. This formula contains a soft and smooth lotion base, especially crafted to gently cleanse and soothe even the most sensitive skin. Next, we incorporate mild yet efficient natural exfoliants, along with our exclusive blend of essential oils, lead by Lemongrass. Turmeric root powder to promote healthy skin is featured to combat the look and feel of inflammation.

Treat Your Nails

If your nails and cuticles are feeling irritated, dry, or brittle, now is the time to treat them. Our Nail and Cuticle Elixir boasts a formula that is free from harsh chemicals but also contains a potent blend of natural oils that work to combat the appearance and feel of fungal infections on both skin and nail beds. This oil promotes a healthier appearance of the affected areas. This highly targeted blend of oils effectively hydrates, cleanses, and purifies, leaving your skin and nails looking and feeling clear and healthy. If fighting nail fungi, we recommend massaging one drop directly into each nail bed or skin affected at least 3-4 times a day.

Moisturize Your Hands

Using hand and nail cream regularly can prevent dryness, roughness, and chapping of hands caused by constant work and our environments. It also will repair and restore lost moisture. Hand moisturizer can also reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots, keeping hands soft, plump, and youthful. Additionally, hand cream can soften nails, treat dry cuticles, and strengthen nails over time. Our favorite remedy for dry hands? Our Lemongrass Mani-Pedi Cream. This cream is enriched with Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Organic Hemp Seed, Avocado Oils, Turmeric Powder, mineral-rich algae extracts, prebiotics, and pure essential oils. Its clean, fresh scent is invigorating and perfect for daily use, providing a quick pick-me-up. The cream's proprietary blend of 100% pure essential oils helps care for and protect your skin, particularly your hands and feet, especially after or during manicures and pedicures. Take this opportunity to give yourself a mini hand massage- You deserve it!

Polish or Au Natural?

If you’re choosing to polish your nails, you’ll want to apply a base coat, which will help hydrate and protect nails while preventing your color from chipping. Apply two coats of color (wait two minutes in between coats!) and finish with a top coat. A top coat will help prevent chipping and add shine to your nails. Tidy up any mistakes with nail polish remover and an orange stick, and you’re good to go!

Not only will taking care of your hands make them look and feel better, but it can also have a significant impact on your overall well-being. Studies have shown that self-care activities like manicures can reduce stress, improve mood, and even boost self-esteem. So why not take advantage of all of these benefits and treat yourself to a relaxing at-home manicure this Fall?
