Get ready to give your hands a much-deserved break from their everyday hustle and bustle with the BIOEFFECT x Asami carefully curated healthy hand care routine, featuring our three hand care heroes; the EGF Hand Serum, OSA Water Mist and Volcanic Exfoliator. Rejuvenate and pamper yourself as you achieve healthy skin that's soft to the touch.
Step 1: Wash, wash, wash!
Start by thoroughly washing your hands with warm water and a gentle soap. Pay special attention to the nail beds and under the nails to remove any dirt, moisturiser, and oils. This will not only keep your hands clean but also extend the wear of your nail polish.
Step 2: Time for a trim.
Once your hands are dry, it's time to shape those nails. Use clippers or a nail file to trim and shape your nails. After that, grab a 180-grit nail file and gently buff the edges of your nails to smooth them out. For an even smoother finish, use a 250-grit nail buffer.
Step 3: Soften those cuticles.
Soak your hands in warm water for five minutes to soften your cuticles. This will make it easier to push them back and give your nails a clean, polished look.
Step 4: Push and wipe.
Using a dry gauze or a Q-tip, gently push your cuticles upwards to prepare the nail bed. Wiping away any excess cuticle will leave your nails looking neat and tidy.
Step 5: Exfoliate for silky-smooth skin.
To remove dry skin and make the most of our Hand Serum, massage a small amount of our BIOEFFECT Volcanic Exfoliator into wet hands and rinse carefully. For ongoing softness, use the Exfoliator twice a week.
Step 6: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Mist your hands generously with our BIOEFFECT OSA Water Mist before applying our EGF Hand Serum. This step will help the serum penetrate your skin better, maximising its benefits. Massage the serum into your hands using circular movements, focusing on the back of your hands, fingers, and cuticles. Repeat in the morning and before bedtime for truly nourished and youthful hands and nails.
Other Useful manicure prep tips.
● Always make sure your tools are clean and sanitised before using them.
● Use the EGF Hand Serum regularly to keep your hands soft and hydrated.
● If you're prone to dry or brittle nails, try applying nail oil or treatment before bed to keep them strong and healthy.
● For longer-lasting polish, wrap the tips of your nails with the polish brush to seal the edges.
● If you make a mistake while painting, dip a fine-tipped brush in some polish remover and clean up any smudges or errors.
