Nail the Look
Tips to keep your nails clean & healthy.
Your nails form a very important part of your hands and need to be cared for. Well-kept hands, with neat, clean and healthy nails, are a pleasure to behold. As our hands are constantly used, nails are exposed to water, sun and other elements. Hence, nails are more prone to damage and certain infections. But with a little care and proper hygiene, we can all have healthy nails.
To avoid any kind of fungal infection, nails and body should be kept clean. An anti-fungal powder should be dusted in all the body folds and also in the webs of the toes. Nails should be cut into a square shape. In case of infected nails, an anti-fungal lacquer, which is available at chemists, should be applied on the affected area. A visit to a dermatologist is essential as he can prescribe oral anti-fungal tablets and some creams for topical application. The nails should be kept dry at all times.
