Acrylic Nails - Aftercare

Golden Rules!

 

Oil nails daily to help them remain flexible, nails that are not oiled are prone to becoming brittle and can therefore “lift” from the natural nail.

Don’t bite or pick your nail enhancements. This will weaken the bond between the acrylic and natural nail and therefore reduce their lifespan.

Don’t be tempted to use your nails as tools, e.g. opening cans.

After approx 2 weeks your acrylic nails will require an in-fill to replace the acrylic that has grown out at the cuticle.

For best results please return to me for acrylic removal, where the acrylic will be safely/professionally removed followed by a manicure.

PLEASE DO NOT BITE OR PICK OFF YOUR ACRYLIC NAILS! THIS WILL REMOVE NATURAL NAIL LAYERS, LEAVING THEM SOFT AND WEAK.

Waxing - Aftercare

If your skin is particularly sensitive to waxing, apply antiseptic cream to the area regularly to speed up the healing process. A “bumby” waxing rash is normal immediately afterwards and should subside within an hour or two.

For 24 hrs after, avoid:-

“Very” hot baths, showers, sauna’s etc as skin can be sensitive to heat.
Sunbeds and fake tans.

Exercise

Tight clothing

Deodorant, perfumed body lotions, talc, etc.

After 48 hrs, exfoliate (very gently) and moisturise the waxed area to prevent ingrown hairs, do this twice a week.

Clients new to waxing may see re-growth after a few days or a week. It can take up to 4 waxing sessions, (4 weekly) for your hair to get on a growth cycle which gives best results. Hair needs to be at least 1cm long in order to be waxed from the root. Please don’t be temped to shave in between appointments as this will interfere with the growth cycle.
