Don’t ignore your nail health. It not only looks untidy, but can result in fungus and infections.

Here’s some tips to maintain good nails.

First, if you go for manicures or pedicures, make sure any item they use on you is properly sterilized.

Keep the cuticle intact.

Nails should be kept dry and clean in order to help prevent infection.

Trim your nails straight across, with each tip ended in a gentle curve, should you wish.

When applying moisturizer, put it on your nails as well, rubbing it into your nails and cuticles.

If your nails appear to be brittle or weak, ask your MD about biotin. It’s thought this may be a nail strengthener!
