Protect your hands during gel manicures: Tip of the Day 6-17-22

If you’re a fan of gel manicures, you might want to start protecting your hands before heading to the nail salon (if you aren’t already).

Dermatologists say nail lamps are like mini tanning beds for your hands! Researchers say nail lamps emit less radiation than a tanning bed, but still recommend protecting your hands. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends applying a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to your hands before getting a gel manicure.

The AAD says it released this recommendation in light of an increase in nail damage and skin cancer over the years linked to UV lamps.
