Nurturing nails at Lymington's Natural Health Hub
All-natural manicures and pedicures using chemical-free skin and nailcare products make an ideal gift or pre-Christmas treat!
The Natural Health Hub now offers all-natural manicures and pedicures using nourishing chemical-free skin and nailcare products. Perhaps a voucher for she who loves her nails? Or, even better, a pre-Christmas treat to yourself?
"We were shocked a couple of years ago when we opened The Hub to find just how toxic many skin products are – particularly nail varnish," explains Sue Leach, owner of The Natural Health Hub in Lymington. "Did you know most standard polishes contain chemicals that are banned in other countries due to their potential health risks?
"So we sourced a range that is totally chemical-free and made instead from essential oils and other natural ingredients: Dr’s Remedy nailcare selection. The range includes 40+ colours, plus acetone-free polish remover and top/bottom coats that look and work just like normal polish but nourish and moisturise your nails (rather than drying them out and wrecking them!). They are also vegan and cruelty free."
Toxin-free manicures and pedicures
Now, in time for Christmas, The Hub are introducing Nurturing Nails toxin-free manicures and pedicures. Corinne Light is especially excited to be offering this service because two years ago she had to stop her nail practice after having a violent skin reaction to the products she used.
"It’s brilliant to be able to get back to my manicures and pedicures," says Corinne. "The Dr’s Remedy polishes are really impressive: they go onto the nails really easily, last the same amount of time as regular polishes and don’t chip."
Corinne has also chosen luxury pampering Prendé oils, which are enriched with moisturising vitamins and essential oils, to massage your feet and hands, and a nourishing cuticle oil that contains lavender, safflower and tea oil plus restorative tea tree oil.
One of the aspects that particularly drew us to Dr’s Remedy is the range of colours they offer, from traditional neutrals to favourite corals to on-trend greys and classic reds (such as sultry Rescue Red or vibrant Remedy Red). For the festive season treat yourself to glimmering Glee Gold or Magnetic Midnight silver, and the shimmering tones of rich-red Glimmering Garnet.
And therapeutic too
As well as being free from formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and tuolene – constituents banned in America that are found in many nail polishes sold here – Dr’s Remedy is the first and only nail polish to receive the American Podiatric Medical Association seal of approval.
With organic tea tree oil and garlic bulb extract, wheat protein and Vitamins C and E, the polishes inhibit fungal growth, strengthen weak nails and are nourishing for yellow, discoloured or dry/brittle nails. Plus there is a Hydration Nail Moisture Treatment that’s great to use to give your nails a break or if you have problem nails. Formulated originally by podiatrists, the Dr’s Remedy collection is a must if you have fungal tendencies and particularly recommended for pregnant women and diabetics.
Reasonably priced at £12.95 per pot, the polishes make fantastic stocking fillers. Get everyone painting their nails safe in the knowledge they’re not doing them any harm…
