Avoid Ingrown Toenails
The most common reason for an ingrown toenail is cutting toenails too short. When nails tare cut too short, the skin on the sides can cover the corners of the nail which causes the nail to grow back into the skin.
Nail Care Tips…
Cut nails when they’re dry, not wet because wet nails are more likely to tear, bend, or not cut smoothly because they’re softer when wet. Cutting dry nails will give you a cleaner, smoother cut.
A straight trim will help ensure your toenails grow forward as they should. Curved edges provide more opportunity for your nails to grow into your skin instead. If you are concerned about the corners of your nails poking against you or catching on your socks, gently file them down instead of clipping them off.
Nail clippers or manicure scissors are appropriate, but avoid tools such as regular scissors or knives that aren’t specifically designed for cutting nails. You should have two nail clippers — one for your fingers and one for your toes. Since your toenails are broader and thicker, they require a larger clipper.
How do you sterilize metal nail tools?
Make sure to keep your nail tools sterilized. Cover nail clippers with 70% Rubbing Alcohol in a glass bowl. Let soak for 30 minutes. Rubbing Alcohol kills bacteria by destroying the cell wall as it dries. It’s important to use a 70% concentration because it contains the proper amount of water to alcohol.
