Tips to follow for well-groomed hands

Refrain from harsh soaps

You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you’re washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand’s skin dry and scaly.

Clip your nails regularly

Make use of your personal nail clipper to cut your nails. After cutting your nails at a comfortable length also file them using a nail filer. Never share your nail care clipper as the germs can get transferred to your loved ones.

Also, don’t forget to use grime remover to remove hidden germs in corners and beneath nails. Also, you may like to file your nails to have a smooth finish.

Good-quality nail clipper

Do not use a rusted or chromium coated nail clipper as it might be harmful to skin and might cause dangerous bacterial infections

Stop the habit of nail chewing

Sometimes anxiety or extreme boredom can lead to chewing of nails. This habit only makes your nails uneven and ugly. Sometimes, our unclean nail folds give rise to viral, bacterial or fungal infections, which in turn can make us sick if we chew our nails.

Exfoliate your hands

Similar to the way you exfoliate your face; your hands also need it. It helps to keep the dry skin at bay and keep your hands soft. You can buy a scrub or make one at home using brown sugar and olive oil. After scrubbing, you need to massage your hands with moisturizer.

Don’t use your nails as tools

Always keep in mind that your nails are like jewels. Never use them to pry things open such as pop cans, removing keys from the ring, opening letters or scraping off labels. This results in unnecessary breakage of nails, making your hands look dirty.

Be aware of nail or cuticle inflammation or redness

If there are any signs of infection, disinfect the skin as soon as possible with an antibacterial or antifungal ointment.
