Top Ten Foot Care Tips Over 10 Days. Day 4

4. Trim Toenails Properly

Every couple of weeks, you must trim your toenails to keep them healthy and strong.

Use proper nail clippers only; do not use scissors. To make the task easier, trim your toenails after taking a shower when they are a bit softer.

Do not trim your nails too short, as this can cause discomfort while walking.

Always trim your toenails straight across and smooth the corners with an emery board or nail file. Never trim at an angle or down the edges as this can lead to ingrown toenails, which can be extremely painful and also unsightly.

Always get help from an expert to treat an ingrown toenail, instead of trying to do it yourself at home.

Remember to push your cuticles back, too, and never cut your cuticles. Apply some cuticle oil to your toenails, wait 5 minutes and then push the cuticles back with an orangewood stick.

Make sure that you do not push too hard, which can increase your risk of developing an infection.

Small children and elderly people should have someone help them trim their toenails.
