Plan for the Future Care of Your Nails

You have done so well working through this program and caring for your nails. However nothing is achieved unless we continue with this process. We often hear people saying that something didn’t work. The problem here is that they didn’t stick with the program to the end and were possibly not commited to it in the first place. Perhaps they were initially and then became bored or impatient with it.

In todays society most people are seeking instant gratification. Growing our nails is not something that will happen overnight. It is a steady process that only works when you are working it. So stay committed and make sure you stay within the Facebook group as this is where much of the encouragement and motivation will come from although I am sure you have family and friends supporting you too.

If you have any questions or would like to find out about our other programs, feel free to reach out and send us an email.

Three Potentially Harmful Chemicals In Nail Polish

Toluene is a solvent and is also used in paint thinners, rubber, adhesives and laquers plus car exhaust and cigarette smoke. It is also linked to Cancer and birth defects.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that use of nail polish or nail polish remover containing toluene may result in the chemical passing through your skin and into your bloodstream.

Debutyl Phthalate (DBP) this is used as a solvent for the dyes. Researchers confirmed that DBP is absorbed through the skin in a 2007 study. In addition to being linked to developmental problems, it’s also believed to be a hormone disruptor, to impair fertility, and to be toxic to aquatic organisms.
After measuring phthalate metabolites in the urine of over 2,600 participants, CDC researchers found that they are widespread in the general population. Women had higher levels than men for those phthalates “used in soaps, body washes, shampoos, cosmetics, and similar personal care products.”

Formaldehyde is a colourless gas found in nail hardeners. The CDC notes that breathing formaldehyde can cause sore throat, cough, scratchy eyes, and nosebleeds.
