Many people tend to overlook taking care of their nails. Are you one of them?

The health of our hands and nails are often taken for granted by many people.

We should ideally be giving them the same level of care as we do for other parts of our body.

Keep your hands and nails clean

It is essential to keep our hands and nails clean and neat at all times. Wash them if they are dirty, using water and products that are gentle on them. Harsh products should be avoided as they can make our skin and nails dry and weak. Clip and file nails when necessary and avoid interfering with your nail cuticle.
