Hey, ladies! Before you head out for your summer pedicures, know this: traditional nail polishes are killing your toenails! They are full of toxic chemicals that can leave your nails yellow, brittle or otherwise damaged.
Because of that fact, most podiatrists flat out tell their patients to not get pedicures or wear nail polish. In my years of practice, however, I've learned that advice doesn't fly. Especially here in Houston, where my patients likely wear open-toed shoes all year long. So, the question remains: what are polish lovers to do?
Finding a Better Nail Polish Solution
Thankfully for our Houston patients, we found a nail-friendly solution: Dr's Remedy Enriched Nail Polish.
This revolutionary nail polish offers a stunning array of the colors your would find with any nail polish. But lucky for us, there's one main difference between Dr. Remedy's and the other polishes! This line of polishes doesn't contain the harmful toxins found in most other brands. And that's a big deal, because some of those chemicals are really scary: think Formaldehyde, Toluene, and DBP, just to name a few.
And forgetting the damage these chemicals can cause to your nails, they have also all been linked to serious health problems. While you may not immediately notice some health issues, damage to your nail will be easy to spot. You will probably recognize the damage as white streaking that you find on your nails after your polish is removed.
So...that's the bad news. But here's the good! Not only does Dr's Remedy not contain these damaging toxins, each polish is enriched with natural antifungals and Vitamins C and E. These natural additives nourish the nails to provide a stronger, healthier nail. In addition, Dr's Remedy Enriched Nail Polish also is manufactured from organic ingredients and is vegan.
The Safe Way to Remove Polish
Now that I've (hopefully) scared you away from traditional polishes, let's talk about the removal process. Nail polish remover is also damaging to the nails. It generally contains acetone, which can dissolve plastic...so just imagine what it is doing to your nails! Lucky for all of us, Dr's Remedy also makes an acetone free nail polish remover. And, not only is it missing the bad stuff, but it is also enriched with wheat protein, natural antifungals, and vitamins. Best of all...it works!
