Nail care

Nails are living structures that are continuously growing. They are mainly formed of keratin, water and lipids, which gives them a high permeability (they are 1000 times more permeable to water than the skin), so they are easily dehydrated and weakened.

Fragile and unprotected nails

In addition, the fact that they are always unprotected and exposed to multiple external aggressions adversely affects their integrity. Environmental (cold, water, etc.), chemical (detergents, coloured nail polishes, etc.) and mechanical factors (many manual works) gradually impair the structure of nails, making them weak, dehydrating them and reducing their growth rate.


Daily care using specific products to protect, moisturise and regenerate the nails will help us enhance their vitality and natural beauty.

Tips to combat weak, brittle nails

  1. Keep your nails clean and dry to prevent infections caused by germs under your nails.
  2. Moisturise your nails regularly using specific creams.
  3. Use a nail hardener or replenisher that is toluene, sulfonamide and formaldehyde-free.
  4. Protect your hands with rubber gloves when working or coming into contact with water, detergents or harmful chemical agents for long periods of time.
  5. Keep your nails nice and short and slightly rounded to prevent cracks or peeling.
  6. Keep a fine-textured nail file handy to prevent future damage or to minimise breakage.
  7. Cut your nails after a bath or shower. Dry nails are more likely to break.
  8. Use acetone-free nail polish remover. Acetone produces excess dryness and encourages peeling.
  9. Do not remove your cuticle during a manicure as it will protect your nail from infections. Use a suitable product to soften the cuticle and then scrape it away gently with a stick.
  10. Do not use your nails as a tool for tough tasks (levering, scraping, poking and so on).
  11. Avoid the habit of biting your nails.
  12. Take a nutritional supplement that contains a variety of nutrients to encourage good nail growth and improve their appearance, strength, resistance and elasticity.
