Winter Friendly Manicures!


Dry, cracked skin (especially the hands!) is a common problem around this time of year. The cold weather outside and dry heat from indoors will suck the life out of your clients' hands. A great way to cater to your clients right now is to offer cold weather, winter-friendly manicures!

Hydration treatments and products are perfect for this. Using warming mitts along with the hydration products will help increase the absorption into the nails and nail beds. Nail strengtheners are definitely another great item to incorporate into these manicures because this weather causes nails to become weak and brittle. But, before you even want to think about moisturizing, exfoliation should be your first thought. Exfoliating the hands will help get rid of all the rough, dry skin. Exfoliation along with deep moisturization are the key to these winter manicures.

Don't forget about massage! Massage will help to penetrate the moisturizers deeply into the skin. Also, add-on paraffin treatments are ideal to include with winter manicures, and can help increase your profits as well.

You should also educate your clients on home care in between their appointments. Some ideas include applying cuticle oil every night to prevent cracked skin and cuticles, exfoliating 2 to 3 times a week, and wearing cotton gloves after applying a moisturizer to keep hands insulated.

Great products for your Winter- Friendly Manicures:
