No matter how well one dolls up, neglected nails is a giveaway on poor grooming standards. Instead of spending time and money getting salon treatments to improve nail health and appearance, you can conveniently DIY at home, at pocket-friendly prices. Sweden’s No. 1 best-selling cosmetic brand, Depend, has launched a 3 step nail care routine for healthy and beautiful talons.
Apart from daily activities such as opening can drinks and typing on the keyboard, some household chores can easily damage our nails. Stress, another common problem faced by ladies living in a fast-paced city, is another factor that can take a toll on the body psychologically, affecting nail quality adversely. Having consecutive gelish over the past 3 months has made my nails became thin and brittle. Depend nail care products proved themselves helpful by strengthening my fragile nails.
The first step in Depend’s 3-step nail care routine is Depend Nail and Cuticle Cleanser ($6.90). This product effectively exfoliates dead skin cells around at the cuticles, thereby allowing them to absorb oxygen and nutrients, leading to increased cell renewal and regeneration which is required for stronger and healthier nail growth. Not only does it prep the nails and cuticles for better absorption of Depend Myrrh Oil, it also smoothens out the nail surface for smooth nail polish application.
Apply Depend Nail and Cuticle cleaner to the cuticle and around the nail root. Leave on for 4 minutes, then massage nail. Clean with a nail brush and rinse with warm water. I like how my cuticles and dead skin cells are completely sloughed off, without any dryness.
A powerful anti-oxidant, Myrrh oil has been popular since ancient times as a natural remedy for ailments, and valued for its skincare benefits. Depend Myrrh Oil ($7.90) comprises of Myrrh oil to condition and strengthen nails, Vitamin E to improve nail appearance and growth and Almond Oil to hydrate nails.
After 2 weeks of usage, I noticed that my nails are more hydrated and resilient. Most importantly, they look healthier and there’s less breaking. I used to rely on layers of nail polish and gelish manis for the past 10 years to hide the ghastly discolouration as well as providing protection from breaking, but thanks to Depend Myrrh Oil, I can start embracing natural nails.
Please ignore the tiny brown streaks, they’re splinter haemorrages (broken capillaries) caused by trauma to the nails (I accidentally hit my nails against something).
Depend Cuticle Cream ($6.90) is made from aloe vera, Vitamin E and allantoin to nourish, soften and moisturise the cuticles. Allantoin is a natural soothing, anti-irritant and skin protectant that increases hydration to cells, as well as increases cell replication, thereby promoting healing.
Say goodbye to dry, flaky, discoloured and brittle nails! Depend Nail and Cuticle Cleanser, Depend Myrrh Oil and Depend Cuticle Cream are exclusively available at Watsons Bugis Junction, Vivocity, Nex and Suntec City, and is also avaliable online at www.dependcosmeticsg.com.sg.
