While proper handwashing etiquette is key to keeping those germs at bay, one thing we seem to have overlooked is the importance of nail care and hygiene. We don’t want to gross you out, but the number of germs hiding under your fingernails is enough to make a girl squirm.
But there’s no need to panic! Just remember these simple tips when taking care of your nails at home.
1. These are stressful times, but try not to bite or chew your nails. Though long nails are in, keep them short and trim them often for now.
2. If you do have long nails, make sure to scrub the underside of your nails with a nail brush. You can do this while washing your hands, after you’ve lathered them up nicely.
3. Your cuticles protect new nails from bacteria, so don’t push or cut your cuticles, and keep them clean and moisturized. We recommend regularly applying cuticle oil at home to prevent dryness and cracking.
4. Never rip or bite a hangnail. Instead, clip it with a clean, sanitized nail trimmer.

5.Don’t forget, clean your nail grooming tools before and after use. Get a scrub brush and dip it in alcohol for 5 minutes. Add antibacterial soap to its bristles afterwards, and you’re all set. Once they’re sanitized, make sure to keep them dry. Remember, molds love moisture!
