When you look down at those gloriously manicured fingernails you beam with pride! Whether it’s a fabulous color that you have discovered or a new nail artist that is using your finger nails as their canvas, you love your fingernails! However, what about your toes and your toenails?
Just because they don’t see the light of day as often as they should doesn’t mean that they need to be neglected. To help you get started on the path towards healthy toes and feet, below are some great tips.
Clean! Clean! Clean!
Waiting for the soapy water to wash down your body and finally make it to your feet and toes doesn’t cut it when it comes to cleaning your feet and toes. Neither does simply swishing them around the water if you are lying in a bath.
The next time you are bathing, set aside some time to give them a good soaping, either with your regular bar soap or with a loofah or similar product to give them a good scrub. While you don’t need to spend an hour on your feet and toes, you should give them some attention.
Put Away Those Big Scissors
While it’s admirable that you cut your toenails in the first place, it’s likely that the scissors that you are using are causing your toes some serious damage and putting you at risk of ingrown toenails.
Instead, head to your local beauty store or even $2 store and pick up a basic pedicure set that includes a purpose designed pair of toenail scissors. This kit will also include tools to help you to remove tough stains or dirt along with boosting their appearance and overall health.
What Are You Wearing?
One of the reasons why so many people suffer from foot and toe problems is because they aren’t wearing the right type of shoes. For example, if many of your shoes are closed toed then you are lily to be causing toe problems with too much wear because your toes are constantly being cramped together. Check out the Groupon Coupons page for Nine West and broaden your selection with some open toed shoes to promote foot and toe health.
Show Them Off!
Just as you like to show the world your fingernails, don’t be shy in showing off your shiny new toes. Along with the possibility of matching or complementary colors for your toes and fingers, the aforementioned nail artist is likely to also provide their service for your toe nails! Only now they get to work with a larger canvas!
Just because they aren’t always seen by the world (or even yourself) doesn’t mean that you should neglect them. After all, your toes and your feet are responsible for ensuring that you can walk easily and without pain or discomfort. The next time that you are bathing or pampering yourself, remember to include your feet and toes in your routine.
