Some people forget to take care of their toenails only focusing more on their fingernails and that isn’t right all. You need to take good care of your body from head to toe to avoid any fungal infection, bacteria, disease and many more.
Here are tips on how to grow healthy toenails.
Always try to wash your feet daily using a mild soap not only helps ward off germs, dirt but the warm water can help stimulate circulation to your feet and toes, which helps toenails grow healthy and strong. Be sure to scrub your toenails with a foot brush while bathing and thoroughly dry each foot, including between the toes.
Make sure you inspect and trim your toenails with a good pair of toenail clippers about once a month. It is very important that you trim your toenails properly in order to help prevent ingrown toenails and bacterial and fungal infections. Remember, do not you should also never cut your toenails too short.
Go for occasional massage
Whether you go for a professional rub, receive help from your partner or do it yourself, occasional foot rubs will help keep the circulation in your feet and toes strong. Good circulation gives your nails a rich blood supply.
Be cautious of your pedicures and nail polish
Some professional pedicures can leave your toenails vulnerable to toenail fungal infections, and nail techs often cut your cuticles which can lead to infection. Meanwhile, some non-organic nail polish can leave your toenails stained yellow, and some nail polish remover can significantly dry out your nails, leading to unattractive peeling and cracking. Hence, it’s best to use caution when treating your feet and toes to pedicures.
