Dermelect Nail Recovery System

Nail Recovery System (4 piece), $59.00

This 3 bottle and 1 jar system of products that are full of Keratin Peptides, Vitamins A, C, & E, plus shea butter was designed to help women who have hard to grow nails, thin, weak, chipping, splitting nails; those damaged by artificial acrylic or gel nails; or nails that are ridged and have uneven coloring. Would you believe that I have every single one of those problems?

Because my natural nails were so icky, I became a devotee of artificial nails when they first hit salons in the late 1970s  and early 1980s, and I did not stop wearing them until this past January 2017 when I began taking harp lessons. This new pursuit came with the demand that my nails be kept super short. My instructor and I soon discovered that the acrylic nails, no matter how short they were filed, caused the harp strings to “click,” a real “no-no” in the world of harpists. So off came the artificial nails and I was left with my awful real ones.

I started looking for various solutions with manicurists, both in NYC and Dallas, and each said there is not much that can be done with nails like mine. Then, I was told about these Dermelect products by one manicurist. She said that they had been effective for a handful of clients who tried them. I have been using them for about three months and I believe that I see an improvement in the strength of my nails and they seem to grow faster. However, as of yet, nothing has changed as far as the ridges, but I will take the improvement that I am seeing with great pleasure. If you don’t have great nails either, give this system a try and you might see positive outcomes in all areas.

This system of four products consists of:

  1. Peptide-Infused Nail Strengthener
  2. Peptide Infused Concealer and Treatment
  3. Anti-aging Top Coat
  4. Rejuvenail Fortifying Nail and Cuticle Treatment

Emjoi Micro-Pedi Portable Pedicure 

 As I get older, my skin seems to become drier. In past columns, I have recommended the Clarisonic products for facial cleansing and exfoliation as well as their appliance for the care of your feet. I am still a devoted user of those innovations, but just as my skin has become drier in the last few years, it has also become thinner. I find that I can’t use the Clarisonic device for feet more than once a week. However, a great substitute that can be used daily is found in this Emjoi Micro-Pedi.

It has a vibrating head with a much gentler abrading surface than is found on the Clarisonic correlate. I find the Emjoi Micro-Pedi to be very effective on the heels, as well as the underside of my toes and the balls of my feet. I use it more often than the Clarisonic, but I feel that I need both to keep my feet in great shape.

I hope you find these manicure and pedicure products to be effective. If you have products you’d like to recommend, please send to [email protected] and we may feature them in the future!
