Cold weather, long-wear gels, detergents and hand washing can all play havoc with nails and cuticles. Give them a little love and attention this Winter with first aid for nails from Mavala.
Scientifique K Plus Nail Hardener
The tip of the nail is the most fragile, most unprotected part and breaks easily.
Mavala Scientifique K+ hardens the nail plate thanks to a scientific active ingredient that improves the cohesion of keratin fibres, thus allowing the nail layers to bond together.
It also contains crystal resin tears, that helps the natural keratinisation process of nails, reinforcing them.
This penetrating solution hardens soft nails and avoids them breaking or splitting.
Use two to three times a week until nails have obtained the desired hardness.
Then, you may space out the applications.
Mavala Cuticle Oil Daily Cuticle Care
Uncared for cuticles tend to harden, crack and turn unsightly.
Mavala Cuticle Oil maintains cuticles’ suppleness, softening the skin around the nail, enabling it to be detached from the nail plate and to be rolled gently back.
Use nightly and allow the product to act, while you sleep.
Mavala Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover
The non-acetone formula gently removes polish and does not dry out nail nor cuticle.
Specially developed for delicate and fragile nails.
It does not contain any acetone and is enriched with ingredients that counteract the harsh effects of solvents and protects the nails.
The nail plate is composed of three layers. The visible, outer layer is particularly sensitive to outside elements and can very easily be dried out by the Sun, cold weather, detergents etc.
Mavala Nailactan is a nutritive cream for damaged, dry, brittle, fragile nails, composed of essential amino acids, lipids and kerato-balancing and fortifying vitamins.
Its nourishing and moisturising action restores flexibility to the nail plate, improves its general condition and makes nails more resistant to splitting.
Suitable for long-term care.
How to use
Use as a four to six week cure.
Every night, massage nail and nail root and allow to act overnight.
Apply directly onto bare nails at least once a week.
Mavala Nail Buffer Kit
Buffing not only provides an attractive lustre but also stimulates blood circulation in the nail bed, which encourages a good nail growth.
The Mavala Nail Buffer Kit contains two pads: the grey pad has a slightly abrasive surface to even out ridges and other irregularities; the pink pad is for polishing and shining nails.
How to Use
Use on bare and dry nails.
To even out irregularities, gently draw the grey buffer across the nail – in one direction only – avoiding the nail tips and without pressure. Once a month is sufficient.
Shine the nail with the pink polisher, using long, energetic, back and forth movements without overheating.
Mavala Manicure Sticks
Wrap the bevelled end of the birch wood stick with cotton wool to roll back cuticles and remove dead skin.
The arrow shaped end is handy to remove nail polish smudges or clean under the free edge of nails.
Mavala is available at Minihan’s.
