Step By Step Remove Gel Nail Polish At Home

Gel polish exemplifies a woman’s beauty and takes it several notches higher. However, nails do tend to grow, thereby necessitating the removal of the polish after some time. Generally, gel polish lasts for three to four weeks comfortably. Subsequently, it is necessary to remove it and apply a fresh coat.

The ideal way to remove your gel polish is to visit a salon and let the experts do their job. However, in these times of the pandemic, it is natural for you to hesitate to visit the salon. Under such circumstances, you can learn the art of removing nail polish at home. This article details out the procedure for you and endeavors to make it simple.

The Gel Polish Removal Procedure

As the gel polish begins to fade away, you will feel tempted to pick or rip off the nail polish on your own. Though many people consider it as a satisfying urge, one should desist from doing so. As you peel off the polish, it could take some part of the nail bed with it, thereby weakening your nail altogether. It is better to learn the procedure of removing gel polish at home in a proper manner.


What Is The Best Method Of Tanning?

Tanning is a beauty procedure that makes dull pale skin look lively by putting in some color to it. Tanning is possible in three different ways

  • Sun tanning
  • Tanning beds
  • Self-tanning

Sun Tanning

You find a beautiful place where your skin can be exposed to the sun for an extended period allowing it to tan naturally. Well, naturally may be a good thing most of the time but not here as the sun’s rays have harmful UV rays that can cause skin cancer. But many people prefer this method as it is the cheapest possible way to achieve a tan.

While tanning outdoors, you need to use an outdoor tanning lotion or tanning oil. Using the best outdoor tanning oil gives you faster results.

Tanning Beds

You visit a saloon by applying tanning lotion to help your body be exposed to a controlled environment. This process is a little shorter than sun tanning as the controlled environment has a complete focus on you, unlike sun exposure. You get exposed to specific, less harmful rays that change your color. This was the middle ground where people choose to be a little safe yet little expensive to look tanned.


Applying an exclusive tanning product, and without any application of heat, it turns your body dark due to a natural reaction. You can apply best tanning lotions for legs right at your home and wake up with tan without being in the sun. This tan lasts a little less time than the above methods but is the safest method as it happens only to the dead skin layer that eventually peels off. The DHA causes the browning of skin and does not involve complex processes or irreversible issues.

What is a Board Certified Dermatologist?

A dermatologist is an MD or DO who specializes in medicine of the skin, hair and nails. Becoming a board certified dermatologist means that doctor has graduated from 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, passed parts I, II and III of the National Boards, and completed an additional 4 years of specialty training in an accredited Dermatology Residency in order to sit for the Dermatology Board Exam, an intensive two day long examination with hundreds of questions on all aspects of Dermatology. Only after qualifying for and passing that exam does that doctor become a board certified dermatologist.
