    Top tips for toenails

    Hair tends to get all the attention but remember that feeling and looking healthy is a head to toe thing. With healthy, well cared for nails you can go out into the world feeling confident from head to toe. Read on for our top tips on nail care for feet - and hands.

    Stride with pride

    Split and discolored toenails are not a good look, so start with foot hygiene. Cleaning and exfoliating regularly can prevent bacteria from growing underneath your toenails and stop them from splitting. It’s best not to share your nail equipment with others as that can easily spread infection, which will damage your nails.

    Careful with the cuticles

    Cuticles are living skin and act as your natural protective barrier to fungus and bacteria, so don’t cut yours. When protection is lost, infections can harm the nail bed and lead to permanent nail damage. Carefully neaten things up using a cuticle pusher instead.

    Nourish your nails

    You’d be surprised by how your lifestyle can impact on your nails. Stress can affect your body at a cellular level, even down to the nail cells. 3 Inflammation caused by free radicals can also cause damage. Foods with high levels of antioxidants - like blueberries, beetroot, and kale - help protect your body’s cells against free radicals.

    Helping hands

    If your nails are soft and bendy, maybe it’s time to get someone else to do the washing up. Nails get softer and weaker with too much exposure to water. So, if you’re stuck with the chore, always use disposable gloves. Wear them when doing any housework to help protect your nails and cuticles from liquids and chemicals, which may soften and damage your nails.

    Get even with ripped nails

    If you notice the slightest nail damage, it’s best to act quickly. Even the smallest split can give bacteria and fungi the chance to penetrate into the nail bed causing further, harder to treat nail damage. So the minute you spot a slight break simply grab the easy to use electronic nail pen from the Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System and even out the damage in no time.

    Very important Pedi treatment
