1. Take Care When Cutting Your Nails
It is imperative that you know the correct way to cut your nails. Do not cut them down too far, cut to a length that is just slightly beyond your fingertips.
Longer fingernails are not a good idea. They may look beautiful and attractive, but they have many downsides. For example, it is difficult to keep them clean, and dirt and debris that becomes trapped under longer fingernails is more difficult to remove. Instead, opt for shorter nails and take good care of them.
Cut each nail across, adding a slight curve at the edges that mimics the shape of your fingertip. Be sure to use sharp scissors or a sharp pair of clippers, as rusted or dull blades can cause damage to your nails.
2. Clean Your Fingernails At Least Once A Day
It is very simple to clean your fingernails.
First wash your hands as you normally would. Pay special attention to your fingers. Next, take a soft nail brush and run it under the water. Rub it on a bar of soap and then use it to scrub your fingernails. Make sure that you get under each nail as much as possible.
Once you are done, rinse and look for any remaining dirt or debris.
3. If You Use Nail Polish, Stay Away From Acetone Nail Polish Remover
While some women enjoy having natural nails, some women prefer to polish their fingernails.
If you choose to use nail polish, stay away from acetone based nail polish removers to avoid drying out your nails. Dryer nails break and crack much more easily, and you definitely wouldnt want that!
4. Remember To Take Care Of Your Cuticles
Do not neglect your cuticles. They need to be included in your nail care routine. Either treat them with cuticle oil, or use olive oil from the kitchen. Lotion is another good choice.
Also, you should never rip out a hangnail. Cut it off instead. Ripping it off might lead to an infection from germs or bacteria, especially considering that we are using our hands constantly throughout the day.
