Yes, Your Nails Get Old Too. But There's Something You Can Do About It

What: Dermelect Anti-Aging Nail Treatments, $16-$18
Why: When I first heard about Dermelect ’s new line of anti-aging nail treatments, I thought, “Oh wonderful. Another body part to age-obsess about.” Then I thought, “Wait—our nails age?” Prior to learning of these treatments, I never really focused my anti-aging efforts toward my nails.
I am now. As we age, keratin diminishes in our nails, which lessens the nail bed’s strength and moisture. Touted as the first nail treatments to stymie aging, Dermelect’s High-Maintenance Instant Nail Thickener , Launchpad Nail Strengthener and Makeover Ridge Filler all help restore lost keratin proteins in nails, in turn slowing the aging process.
I’m personally digging High-Maintenance , which purports to instantly thicken my nails by up to 50%. I can’t tell if that’s the case, but my naturally weak nails feel stronger and harder than ever. I’ll report back in 20 years to let you know how fit-as-a-fiddle my nail beds are.
