Nail Care for Men
Nail care for men is usually referred to cutting of nails when they grow big and nothing more than that. Other than this, some societies discourage this nail care habit amongst men and regard them as feminine. Nail care isn’t a very bad habit, in fact it is an attempt to maintain basic personal hygiene and there is nothing bad about it or nothing to laugh about.
Nails of men grow faster than women and this is a natural effect. Men are involved in physical labor most of the time and this causes their nails to get dirty. Washing your nails only can not be a very good source for maintenance of your personal hygiene. If men are still not convinced about the need for nail care, consider the fact that Hollywood stars and different heroes take good care of their nails. If dirty nails are a standard of your society, it is fine, but if not then one must take good care of nails as women are mostly repulsed by men having dirty hands. Nail care for men adds to their look and makes their personality a little bit more attractive.
The process of nail care is same for men as it is for women. A wide range of nail care products are available in the market for men. Nail saloons also offer nail care for men though prices for men are higher than women. That is the only discrimination but after some search you will find a non-discriminating saloon.
If you are not willing to go to a saloon for nail care, one can apply numerous procedures at home for care of nails. If someone is willing to keep long nails, one must shape them first by filing them and apply procedures on it as manicure. Next is application of polish. Most of the men prefer clear nail polishes which are transparent having no color but have a glossy look. Nail polishes usually consist of a base coat, top coat and strengthener. In order to get a good look, one must purchase and apply all these products according to the given instructions.
One must need to re apply nail polish after washing hands. There are some special nail polishes intended for men and they are not colorless but have an advantage that they are having a unique chemical composition that helps to keep nails strong and healthy. These act as a moisturizer as well as a thickener. These types of products have become equally popular in women as well.
After the application of nail polish there are cleaners, whether you use a colorful or colorless polish. One of the disadvantages of cleaner is that it dries your nails so polishes with moisture are best. Apart from this lotion can also be used to make hands and skin look softer and beautiful.
Gone are the days when nail care was only for women, so what are you waiting for. Rush to the market and get yourselves a nail care kit too.
