Healthy Cuticles

Cuticles are very fragile. Picture them as if they were like a rubber band that runs over top of the nail and underneath the nail. You never want to cut your cuticle because it’s like cutting into a rubber band, which will create a weak spot leaving it open to infection.  Gently push back your cuticles. Never use anything that is sharp to push back your cuticles.
When you get out of shower, while the nail cuticle is still moist, take a towel and gently push each cuticle back towards your knuckles. Do it slowly over a period of time. Don’t try to do it all at once.
Keep your cuticles moist with a very good quality hand cream, not lotion, especially at night. If you're one of my clients I offer a special oil you can use as well as a lovely peptide cream for your nail plates that makes them beautifully enhanced and enriched with that beautiful pink and white look.

Hydropeptide Skincare line

For the last 7 months I have integrated this skincare line into my practice. I have clients with many different skin types and disorders and they have seen a huge improvement in their skin! Some of my clients who were skeptical - who have been struggling with poly (extreme) sensitive skin and/or rosacea have been able to use these products with no side effects. They are pleased to see how much their skin has improved with Hydropeptide and now use it on a daily basis as their regular skincare routine!

Hydropeptide has won multiple Beauty Awards throughout the years and I am highly confident in using this product line and retailing it to my clients.
