Posts for tag: gel nail polish

While watching the NBC Nightly News last night, I caught a short story about gel nail polish. News anchor, Brian Williams discussed how the Dermatology Journal of the American Medical Association released a report. They estimate that only 24 exposures to UV light while getting a gel nail polish manicure may mutate the DNA in your skin and cause skin cancer.

Currently, we recommend that you avoid the UV gel manicures and ask the nail technician if they have LED light gel polish manicures, which are thought to be safer. Better yet, avoid it all together and as always, make sure you wear your mineral-based sunscreen everyday!

You can watch the story yourself at nbcnews.com.
