Bio Sculpture Tips
TO KEEP YOUR
BIO GEL NAILS BEAUTIFUL
Even though Bio Sculpture is the only 5 Star Safety Rated gel system in the market today, a little extra TLC can help keep your nails looking beautiful and healthy.
Below are some helpful tips for looking after your Bio Gel nails:
1) NEVER Pick, Pull or Bite
This will likely cause the gel to be forcefully removed from the natural nail, bringing with it layers of nail and ultimately resulting in weakened or damaged nails. Removal should be done by a qualified Bio Sculpture therapist who has been trained on how to safety remove your gel nails without causing any damage. Alternatively, enquire about our DIY removal and home care kits in store at DE LA RUE Beauty, which contains everything you need to safety remove your Bio Sculpture Gel and keep your nails healthy.
2) Protect Your Nails
Whether working in the garden or doing some cleaning around the house, simply wearing gloves can protect your nails from dehydrating detergents and harmful bleaches, resulting in longer lasting wear and shine.
3) Top Up Your Shine
Regularly apply Bio Sculpture’s High Gloss Top Coat, which has been specially formulated with a sun filter that protects the Gel from UV light exposure and will keep your talons looking shiny. After about 1 week, easily remove the High Gloss Top Coat with Bio Sculpture’s Polish Remover and reapply a shiny new High Gloss Top Coat layer.
4) Keep Regular Appointments
Nails grow quick, and after only a week or two you will begin to notice some signifiant regrowth. It is recommended that you have an appointment every 2 to 3 weeks to help maintain cuticle health with Bio Sculpture’s natural nail treatments, and to have the Bio Sculpture gel removed and/or reapplied. Removal is an important part of nail health and safety, and should be done by a qualified Bio Sculpture therapist who can safely remove the gel or polish without damaging the natural nail plate.
5) Try A Spa Treatment
A Bio Sculpture manicure and pedicure spa treatment is a great way of getting moisture back into your nails, hands and feet. Inspired by nature, Bio Sculpture’s Luxury Spa Range products are infused with heavenly aromatics and nourishing essential oils such as rose geranium, ylang ylang, lavender, mint mask and jojoba, that help keep your skin feeling smooth and hydrated.
Cuticles, cuticles, cuticles!
Often mistreated, the cuticles play an important part in nail health, acting as a protective barrier for the fast growing soft keratin that eventually becomes your nails.
If neglected, your cuticles may become damaged, dry or harden, and allow microscopic dust and organisms to penetrate the area under the cuticle. This may not only cause discomfort and pain, but may lead to an infection that impacts on the overall health of your nail, and can leave them feeling soft, discoloured or misshaped.
Below are some helpful tips to keep your cuticles healthy, and your nails strong and beautiful!
1) Keep ’em strong!
Like your skin, your cuticles need regular moisturising to maintain their health and structure. By regularly applying Nail Treatments like Bio Sculpture’s Cuticle Oil or Nail & Cuticle Conditioner, your cuticles will be enriched with nourishing jojoba, ginseng and almond oils keeping them healthy, strong and flexible.
TIP: Be sure to check the ingredients of your Nail Treatments – some nail hardeners and cuticle conditioners may contain toluene sulphonamide or formaldehyde which are irritants and can further damage the skin. Bio Sculpture products are 5 FREE, meaning they do not contain toluene sulphonamide and formaldehyde, as well as toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde.
2) Leave it to the professionals
Tempted to bite, cut, pick, trim or clip those unruly cuticles? Think again. Cutting or trimming cuticles at home increases the risk of breaking that protective barrier, and allowing germs to enter and infect the cuticle or nail area. It is crucial that you go to a well trained Nail Technician, who understands how to provide a safe and healthy manicure service without damaging the cuticle.
All Bio Sculpture Nail Technicians have undergone training to ensure your nails and cuticles are professionally treated and cared for.
3) If you suspect that you have a cuticle infection, GO TO THE DOCTOR!
Doctors can easily treat cuticle infections with a range of antibacterial and anti-fungal treatments. Avoid getting gel or polish manicures or pedicures until your infection has gone, or you have received the all clear from the Doc.
FACT: An infection in the cuticle is called paronychia, and an infection in the nail plate is called onychomycosis
