Healthy Nails By Loceryl

Getting my nails done by a beautician in Posh! Nail Spa.

Beautiful nails are just as important as having beautiful hair for every girl (and guy) out there. We beautify our nails by keeping them clean and lacquered with loads of colorful options we have nowadays. Some of us even go for regular, monthly manicure and pedicure to maintain our fingers and toenails. It's just as much of a necessity as a good dose of retail therapy.

However, beautifying our nails does not guarantee its health. One of the worst things that can happen to our nails, is getting a fungal nail infection.

What is a fungal nail infection, you ask?
Well, it is a fungal infection of the finger nails or toenails which does not go away without treatment. It has very obvious symptoms, where your nail will appear yellow or brown, be either very thick or brittle and it can also be separated from the nail bed. Yikes!

The cause of it?
Possible nail injury, tight footwear or even an existing medical condition. These are caused by three main types of fungi - dermatophytes, yeast and moulds. Contrary to common belief, fungal infections are not caused by poor hygiene. However, it is quite severe and if not treated, can spread to other nails and cause permanent nail damage.

A yellow nail can't be good for social calls. No, definitely not.

Thankfully, we have a 'nail doctor' who goes by the name of Loceryl, by dermatology company, Galderma. Loceryl is a sort of nail lacquer, that helps treat fungal nail infections. The main active ingredient, Amorolfine, kills the infections and can sustain its antifungal effect for a minimum of 7 days within the nail.

To help us understand more about the product, Loceryl had invited a few of us to a pampering and educational session at Posh! Nail Spa. I was warmly greeted by the amazing team, and was given an express manicure pampering session by the beautician.

Teh Chean Boon, Sales & Marketing Manager of Galderma Malaysia, and Jean-Sebastian Ricard, General Manager of Galderma South-East Asia make an appearance.

I was given a choice between some lovely blue hues - very apt, blue being the main color for Loceryl.

I chose a lovely lilac-blue color.

Right after that, I gave my nals some time to dry before heading over to their DIY station. Over here, each of us get to make our own natural foot bath salt. It is pretty simple actually, and anyone can make them at home for a nice home pampering session for your foot.

The ingredients to help us make that natural foot bath salt.

This is my bowl of foot bath salt mixture. To get this, mix: 8 tablespoons of natural sea salt, two drops of lavender oil, two drops of blue coloring and a sprinkling of dried lavender flowers. 

Loceryl is very easy to use, and you only need to apply it once a week on the infected nail. Clean the affected area by filing the nail, and cleaning it. Using the provided spatula, apply Loceryl onto the nail like how you would apply nail lacquer. Allow the nail to dry for 3-5 minutes, and you're done!

The duration of complete cure depends on the growth rate of each nail. It is an average 6 months for finger nails and 9-12 months for toenails.

No more fungal nail infections with Loceryl! Available in all major pharmacies nationwide.
