How to Keep Healthier Looking Nails



  Six Nail Care Tips for Healthier Nails
1.Do not rip or bite a hangnail. It's safer to clip it with a clean, sanitized nail trimmer.
2.Do not cut or push back cuticles, as they act as barriers against infection.
3.Clean and sanitize all nail grooming tools before use.
4.Each time you wash your hands, carefully scrub the underside of nails with soap and water (or a nail brush).
5.You should keep nails short by trimming them regularly.
6.Cut your nails straight across and rounded slightly in the center. This keeps nails strong.
