Many of us enjoy having a manicure and or pedicure. It’s the easiest way to make us feel relaxed and get pampered. Some may enjoy getting a new nail polish every week. You can visit your nail salon as often as you wish, but like many others, you may notice your nails starting to become discoloured and look a bit yellowish.
Discolouration can appear for different reasons. One of the main reasons is that your nail isn’treceiving enough air. When using nail polish, it can penetrate the layers of keratin on the nail itself. This can lead to the discolouration of your nails. Nail polish sitting on your nails for an extended period of time can cause nail discolouration.
Another reason includes fungus. This may require medical attention. The fungus can affect the appearance of your nails. If you’re not sure – see your doctor.
You’ll be happy to know that to avoid nail discolouration, time is on your side. No need to fret! By simply taking a break for just a few weeks to let your nails breathe properly and naturally – the discolouration should disappear. Dermatologists recommendleaving your nail polish off for about 14 days to rid your nails of any stain associated with your nail polish.
If your nails still have stains, don’t worry! Your nails will grow and it will outgrow the stains – just let your nails be polish free for a couple of weeks.
