As we all know, the saltiness and ultraviolet rays represent a deadly combination for the nails. How to protect the enamel and nails in general from the aggression of the sun and the sea? Let’s find out together with these 5 universal tips!
1.Avoid the hours of maximum solar radiation

2.Use professional products for manicure and pedicure
A correct manicure is essential to show off perfect nails on the occasion of your next beach vacation. Among the manicure and pedicure sets, we find pumice stone and nail files can remove the unsightly “skin” from the nails.
3.Apply specific moisturizing and protective creams
In order to prevent the skin experience some dryness, it is necessary to apply one or more specific moisturizing and protective creams with a minimum of consistency. This applies to both hands and feet. If possible, remember to always rinse your body with fresh water as soon as you come out of the sea.
4.Apply high-quality resistant enamels
There are hundreds of semi-permanent nail polishes available on the market, please apply the high-quality resistant enamels to withstand the effects of the sun and salt.
5. Refer to expert and competent beauticians
