Moisturize your nails, but beware! 

In summer, the humidity is a lot higher and you probably seek out the water more often. Your nails may become too well hydrated as a result. Your nails can then become too soft and flexible, causing faster damage.

Oil your cuticles with cuticle oil every night. Your cuticles will protect your nails from bacteria and prevent them from drying out in the summer heat. This will also prevent brittle nails, making your manicure look less attractive. Don't forget to regularly apply SPF to your hands to keep them beautiful and protected as well.

When you’re cleaning or working in the garden, it may be wise to wear gloves. Wearing gloves while cleaning and gardening not only protects your manicure, but also prevents cuticles from drying out due to soil and moisture.

Now that the weather is nicer, you might wear open shoes or walk barefoot more often. In that case, don't forget your toenails too! The important thing is to keep your feet and toenails clean and dry. Scrub your feet every week to remove dead skin cells and apply a moisturizer every day for strong and healthy toenails.
