Fact Friday - Gel Manicures

Manicure mavens beware....Gel manicures are on the loose. While we all know the worst part of getting our nails done is drying them. We live in a world where everyone is always on the go, go, go and we never have time for anything so to take the time to dry our nail polish is just impossible. Now that we have gel manicures which doesn't required any drying time, we are good to go or are we.

I came across this article on Everyday Health about the dangers of gel manicures (oh more thing to worry about) and how they can cause an increase risk in skin cancer because of the UV lights which is the same light source used in tanning beds. Oh the things we do to cut down on time and the risk we put ourselves in. And to add insult to injury, these lights can also make your hands look older.

If you like gel manicures, you can use a sunscreen with SPF and cut the exposure time or as I like to do only get a gel manicure when I travel.
