Pinot Noir Pedicure: The Best Treat for Your Skin

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We almost make it through 2020, and here is everyone’s favorite Holiday. It’s the season of family, love, and joy. Everyone is busy running for Christmas shopping, and sometimes it can be difficult to think of gifts for your beloved ones. How about a trip to Nails & More salon for a relaxing pedicure and massage with our staff? Pedicure and massage? Yes, you heard us, a relaxing time with our best services could never go wrong.

Winter is associated with joy and family, however, it’s the time when most of us experience a tough time for our skin. The cold wind has extracted most of our body moisture and left the skin incredibly dry and flaking. We can help! At Nails and More salon we always offer our clients the best and unique service. Have you heard of our Pinot Noir and Champagne pedicure package? Right, it is the pedicure package that comes with a drink (either Pinot Noir or Champagne of your choice!) to warm up your whole body during your visit.

If you are wondering how red wine could benefit your skin, we have good news for you. Red wine and champagne are not only good for your heart but also benefit your skin as topical treatments. Red wine and champagne carry most of the antioxidants that came from grapes during the production process and can easily absorb in your skin as the liquid forms to gently moisturize, reduce inflammation, restore collagen, and leave your skin the soft texture. While the wine is doing the part of moisturizing the skin, the sugar will scrub off the dead skin, leaving you that healthy-looking skin.

At Nails and More salon, we use red wine and champagne in running warm water along with eucalyptus sugar scrubs to pamper your feet, ankles, and calves. Our staff will gently massage your feet and rub all of the dead skins off while letting your legs soak in the red wine and champagne which gives your skin that extra moisture and softness at the end of the service. Hurry up, bring your beloved ones to our salon and give them as well as yourself a treat for this Holiday.

Biting Your Nails? Try this

The cause of nail-biting is due to repetitive motion during one’s childhood. It stems from feeling stressed, frustrated, or bored, and even all of them. The consequences of nail-biting besides the horrid appearance are exposure to fungal infections on the nails and skin. Which can transfer into your body, when touching your face and mouth. As well as damaging the teeth, causing chipping and misalignment. Their tips provided by Tanya Momi and Healthline.com are:

  • Keeping the nails short. 
  • Make sure the nails are filed smoothly
  • Apply cuticle oil, lotions, or bitter polish
  • Cut the excess rough skin and cuticles
  • Stay away from harsh soaps and detergents as they strip the natural oils and lubricants from the surface of the skin

Hand Massage Techniques that relieves stress to use on yourself

There are pressure points all over our bodies to help relieve anxiety. Studies have shown that having your hand massage just once a week may help reduce the pain associated with many conditions, including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and neuropathy. One may massage their own hands (and arms) with or without oil, essential oils, or lotion.

Here are some hand massage techniques you need to know how to do to yourself:

[Resource from healthline.com “The Benefits of a Hand Massage and How to Do It Yourself”]

  1. Sit in a comfortable position. To apply moderate pressure, it may be easier to have one hand on a table while you use your other hand to do the massage strokes.
  2. Use your palm to stroke your forearm from the wrist to the elbow and back again on both sides. If you want to, you can extend the stroking to your shoulder. Do this at least three times on both sides of your forearm. The idea here is to warm up your muscles.
  3. Use your palm to stroke from your wrist to your fingertips on both sides of your hand. Do this at least three times. Use moderate pressure.
  4. Cup your hand around your forearm with your thumb underneath. Pinch your skin starting at the wrist, and work slowly up to the elbow and back down again. Do this on both sides of the forearm at least three times using moderate pressure.
  5. Use your thumb and forefinger — or your thumb and all your fingers — to press in a circular or back-and-forth motion, slowly moving up your hand and forearm. Do this on both sides of your arm and hand at least three times using moderate pressure.
  6. Press your thumb in a circular motion with moderate pressure all around the back of your hand and then your palm. Continue pressure with your thumb along both sides of each finger. Use your thumb to massage the area between your thumb and forefinger (known as the union valley point).

A significant pressure point in both our hands is the ‘union valley point’ (shown in image below):

[Resource from healthline.com “6 Pressure Points for Anxiety Relief”]

  1. With your index finger and thumb, apply firm pressure to the webbing between the thumb and index finger of your other hand.
  2. Massage the pressure point for four to five seconds, taking slow, deep breaths.

To Massage the fingers specifically:

[Resource from healthline.com “The Benefits of a Hand Massage and How to Do It Yourself”]

  1. Beginning with the pinky finger, pinch the tip of the finger firmly for a moment. 
  2. Then using firm, short strokes with your thumb, massage up the finger towards the knuckle. 
  3. Finally, squeeze the finger all over. Repeat the process with each finger, and finish with the thumb.

How changing your diet can increase your nails health

Do you know a little change in your diet can help strengthen your nails too? If you have been giving little thoughts about your nails, just know that your nails do need some decent care especially during the winter time.

Most of us would experience dry, brittle nails that feel weak or break easily. Trust me, it is more than just how your tips look, your nails can be an indicator of underlying health concern, or a sign of lacking nutrients intake from your body. Therefore, a little change in your diet can improve these problems and give back those healthy-looking nails.

1. Protein-rich diet

Lean meat such as chicken, turkey, fish, etc. can really help build up those strong nails. Egg is also a rich source of protein, Vitamin A, and also biotin. One whole cooked egg contains 10 mcg of biotin per serving

2. Fruits and berries

Fruits can be added to your diet as a nutritional boost and for thicker and stronger nails. Fruits contain lots of Vitamin C helps with producing collagen, which naturally make nails more resilient.

3. Dark leafy greens (spinach, broccoli, and kale) – there a reason for Popeye to eat lots of spinach in his diet

4. Nuts (raw, salted, or roasted nuts contain tons of biotin)

A quarter cup of roasted almonds has 1.5 mcg of biotin per serving.

5. Milk – great source of Vitamin D

I know many of us are lactose intolerant however since nuts are great sources of biotin you can also go with nuts milk too!

6. Whole grains like brown rice and oatmeal

7. Beans and legumes like lentils and lima beans

7 Easy Tips for a Winter Nail Care Routine

Winter is coming! Many of us have experienced a rough time for our whole entire body. The dry air and the cold wind in the winter months can cause so many damages to our skins and health in general. It can take away all of the moisture from our body and leave our skin incredibly dry, itchy, and flaking. Likewise, your nails can possibly become a victim of the weather. Have you ever noticed your nails would become brittle and cracked more often? It’s time to step up for a proper winter nail care routine!

The season can be tough and brutal, however, your nails do not have to be ugly and brittle. The lack of moisture in the air is the main cause of dry skins and cracked nails. The warm air in the summer holds more moisture than the cold wind during the winter season. And the warm air from the heater is actually worse for your skin since it drys out the humidity level in your household, which leads to uneven skin texture, chapped lips, dry skin, or brittle nails. Here are some tips for proper winter skin and nail care routine:

  • Hand lotion is your friend! – apply hand lotion at least three times a day and while you are rubbing the lotion on your skin make sure you rub it on to your cuticle too!
  • Cuticle oil at least once a day. Cuticle oil is a must for our stunning nails and prevents our cuticle from turning into a mess
  • Keep your nails a little shorter during the winter months
  • Don’t forget to take multivitamins. Multivitamins can be used every day as a dietary supplement for our body. Multivitamin can vary in the market, therefore, choosing those with biotin and vitamin E can help strengthen your nails
  • Don’t forget to drink water
  • Put on gloves – during the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot avoid using sanitizer, which causes excessively dry skin. However, we can still protect our skin by wearing gloves.
  • Get your nails treated properly! – trips to the nail salons regularly since your nails deserve a treat during this tough season!!!

 

Cuticle oils are available at our salon for $5/ea. Grab one to complete your healthy winter nail care routine!!!
