We all love to pay attention our fingernails. Whether it’s keeping them short and trimmed, growing them long, or even using them as palettes for artistic creations. The reason, of course, is because they’re visible to the public. But what about your poor feet and the toenails you barely give the time of day to?

Well, the first step is to stop talking to your feet. The next step towards healthy feet and toenails is to read the tips below.


When it comes to keeping your tippy toes fresh, keeping them clean is the most important task. But don’t worry, you shouldn’t expect to be scrubbing them for 30 minutes each day. However, you should be giving them a thorough wash each morning during your bath or your shower. When it comes to scrubbing, a good scrub once a week as you bathe is a great way to brush off any stubborn dirt or skin cells and give you a fresh start.

Cut Them Nicely and With Real Scissors

If you are the type of person who takes to their toenails with regular scissors and cuts away until you can’t cut anymore, it’s time for a change. Head to your local beauty store or pharmacy and pick up a good pair or toenail scissors. These are designed to prevent you from cutting your toenails in a way that promotes ingrown nails.

Wear the Right Shoes That Don’t Squeeze Your Toes

Speaking of ingrown toenails, what you wear on your feet has a serious impact on the health of your toenails. Instead of shoes that come to a point, look through the Groupon Coupons page for Edmonds for a pair of flat-ended shoes. If you must wear pumps, look for ones which allow for wriggle room, or at the least are open-toed.

Don’t Forget Nice Creams

Just like you treat your fingernails to luscious creams, so too should your toenails receive the same level of care. If you want to give your toenails complete care, look for a rejuvenating cream targeted towards toenails. However, the regular cream you use for your fingernails should more than suffice. If you find that you often encounter fungal problems, speak with a pharmacist about a cream which can repair your toenails and also provide moisture to the skin around them.

Keep Them Colored

Your fingernails get painted and designed so that you can show them off to everybody you see. However, your toenails should be considered as your own personal touches to your body that only you see. Those types of changes that make you feel good on the inside which shines through on the outside. Don’t be afraid to have them painted or printed on to reflect your own sense of style.

Despite their potential, toenails barely get a second thought when it comes to beauty or body maintenance. However, as this article shows, it only takes a few tips to get you walking on healthier and more beautiful looking feet and toes.
