1. Soak and relax
Soak hands in the Sh'Zen Spa Manicure
for five minutes. It will revitalise dull skin, condition and brighten nails, and soften cuticles.
2. Soften and neaten
Smooth tough, unsightly cuticles with the Sh'Zen Cuticle Exfoliant
, then push the cuticles back neatly with the Sh'Zen Hoof Stick.
3. Exfoliate and renew
Clean, smooth and soften hands with the Sh'Zen Exfoliating Cream
or the Sh'Zen Perfecting Sugar Scrub
. Massage into hands with a little warm water to remove the build-up of dry, hard skin.
4. File and shape
Shape nails while sealing the edges with the glass Sh'Zen Nail File
. It gives nails a professional, neat look - whether they're long or short.
5. Buff and shine
Smooth and polish the surface of nails with the Sh'Zen Nail Buffing Kit
. Use the Emery Buffer to smooth ridges and remove discolouration, and the Chamois Buffer with the buffing powder to polish the nail. It gives nails a natural shine, beautiful on its own or as a smooth base for the perfect application of nail varnish. Regular buffing also increases circulation in the matrix area, which stimulates growth and strength in the nail.
6. Strengthen and repair
Massage the Sh'Zen Matrix Oil
into nails to improve their strength, especially if they're weak or damaged, and to stimulate growth. Then apply the Sh'Zen Cuticle Cream
onto nails to help repair and condition dry, cracked cuticles.
7. Nurture and treat
Massage your hands using the Sh'Zen Treatment Cream for Hands
. Apply 5ml to one hand and massage firmly. After five minutes, repeat the process on the other hand. Apply more cream, cover hands with gloves and wrap in a warm towel. The warmth aids the penetration of the active ingredients and gives skin an intensive moisture boost.
