Nail Slugging TikTok Trend Tutorial

Nail Slugging is similar to other forms of “slugging”. It involves generously applying an occlusive skincare product to a particular area where you want to prevent moisture loss. The method of skincare slugging uses petroleum jelly to lock in the skin’s moisture while hair slugging utilises Vaseline to nourish locks.

The technique should be done daily.

Meanwhile, nail slugging is more versatile. You can use heavy night cream, Vaseline, ointment or petroleum jelly for the technique. All you need to do is clean your nail and generously apply the occlusive product of your choice. Dermatologist and TikTok user @drcharlesmd1 advises that you should do this every day to strengthen your nails and protect them from water damage.
