Nail careBy Mayo Clinic staff
Take a close look at your nails. Are they strong and healthy looking? Or do you see ridges, dents, or areas of unusual color or shape? Proper nail care is important, whether your nails are healthy or in need of special attention. Consider top nail care tips, from keeping your nails clean and trimmed to moisturizing your nails frequently.
If you rely on manicures to keep your nails looking good, know what to expect from your nail care technician. If you have weak or brittle nails, understand the do's and don'ts of various nail care products. If you tend to bite your nails, think about what fuels the behavior.
Remember, basic nail care can go a long way toward keeping your nails healthy.
