Rejuvenating at-home facial for your fingertips

Rejuvenating at-home facial for your fingertips

You've mastered your skincare regime, now it's time for your nails because they need pampering too!

Many of us are sporting dry tired winter hands due to a lack of moisture. During winter, the humidity in the outside air plunges. Inside, things are even drier, thanks to indoor heating. If you're washing your hands frequently to avoid catching a cold or the flu, you sap whatever natural oils are left in your skin.

Let indulge and take time to get back to nail care basics – cleanse, exfoliate and rejuvenate.

Enter the much needed at-home facial for your fingertips. With a focus on the health of the nail underneath the colour, PAX products both nourish and strengthen your nails, leaving fingertips in tip-top condition.


Ready for your nails to look their best yet? Here’s my step-by-step guide on how to complete an at-home facial for your fingertips:

Step 1: Remove your existing polish with PAX water based nail polish remover.

Step 2: Gently file your nails to shape, being careful to file in one direction, then buff the nails with a buffer.

Step 3: Apply PAX’ Cuticle Oil to your cuticles in a soft circular motion and place your hands in a bowl of warm water. Let them rest.

Step 4: Dry your hands. Emma recommends doing this with a warm mitt for extra indulgence. Now that the cuticles are soft, gently push them back using a cuticle stick.

Step 5: Next, apply a body scrub directly to the nails and gently scrub with a brush. Leave the scrub to work its magic by wrapping in a warm towel before rinsing.

Step 6: Massage hand cream into the palms and tops of your hands. Focus on your pressure points and work down your fingers.

Step 7: Now it’s time to apply your PAX base coat.

Step 8: Followed by your favorite PAX colour and completed with a layer of PAX high shine top coat.


Now sit back and check out your beautiful nails, rejuvenated, strong and shiny!
