The Huge Mistake Almost Every Woman Makes When Getting A Manicure...

September 19, 2016 by Jeanine Edwards

Besides getting your cuticles cut… because everyone knows that’s a huge no-no.

No, instead the major mistake I’m referring to is right after your nail technician applies your top coat. Chances are you walk over to a drying station and stick your hands in a device that promises to dry them in a jiffy. Problem is, those “UV” and LED lamps are actually emitting UVA rays… yes, the really bad ones that have been linked to premature skin aging and skin cancer.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “the safest bet is to allow nails to air-dry naturally, avoiding the drying lamps altogether.” If you’re really pressed for time, help speed things up by placing your wet nails in front of or under a fan.

If you simply can’t pass up the UV lamps, bring a sunscreen to the salon with you and have your nail technician apply it before you stick your hands in.

Now you know!
