Dior Apricot Fortifying Creme
My nails peel and split, even though I have never used fake nails for longer than a day (and that was just once). Yeah, so they peel and split and I've been hearing things about this Dior Crème Abricot Fortifying Cream For Nails and am wondering if it actually works? Everybody says it does wonders for their cuticles, but I am concerned about my peeling nails, not cuticles. So, has any one of you girls tried this cream for PEELING NAILS and got results?
I really want it to work. Apricot? I just might eat it....
Hi, gabidee. The Dior Fortifying Creme is a good product for keeping cuticles and your nail bed in shape. However, since you said that you're having trouble with peeling, splitting nails I wanted to let you know about a couple of products that I think would be much better for your nails than the Dior product.
Perfect Formula brand products are designed to strengthen and treat damaged nails using unique and specially designed gels and lotions that assist in making them grow longer and healthier. People, such as you, with brittle nails, damaged cuticles or peeling due to acrylic products will find that these treatments help renew your fingernails (and toenails) quickly and perfectly.
Perfect Formula Daily Moisture is an awesome product that is a daily conditioner for your nails and cuticles that prevents splits and breaks, but I think it works better than the Dior creme. This non-greasy nail conditioner maintains moisture balance and its colorless, odorless formula includes jojoba oil to help all nail types achieve longer, stronger, healthier nails—especially hands with brittle nails. You can find it at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P26
I also recommend using Perfect Formula Gel Coat which is like a "Suit of Armor" which creates a clear coating that strengthens and hardens your natural nails so they can grow long and strong. The keratin-rich formula can be worn alone or layered over your favorite nail color and you can find it at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P26
By the way, a few side notes about fingernail health in general: Fingernails can become brittle and chipped if the body is not receiving certain proper nutrients. Biotin is a vitamin that helps the body process fatty acids and proteins. Take a biotin supplement of 2.5 milligrams per day to strengthen your nails. Another important vitamin for fingernails is the B vitamin folate and it can be supplemented in a daily B vitamin complex. Make sure you are getting adequate protein in your diet, with at least several servings of meat, dairy or nuts per day. You can moisturize your nails just like you would your skin by rubbing moisturizing lotion into them. This is especially important after you remove nail polish and after the nails have been in water.
Good luck with your nails and I hope this helps!
Have a great day!
