      hand cream (for fingernails) or foot cream (for toenails) as often as you can,
      e.g. after washing your hands/feet
      or taking a bath.
    • 30. Fungus can enter through cracked skin.
      To prevent skin from cracking
      use a good moisturizer.
      But do NOT use it in between your toes as they breed fungus easily.
      Daily for toenails
    • 31. Daily for toenails
      Avoid walking
      on your bare feet
      as this can encourage bacteria growth as well as causing your heels to become hard and start cracking.
    • 32. While choosing shoes and boots
      for outdoor activities,
      buy those that will easily allow circulation of blood
      to the toes.
      Daily for toenails
    • 33. Daily for toenails
      If you have sweaty feet, ensure that you use antifungal powder
      while working outside for long periods of time. This will prevent nail fungus infection.

      (or Nail File)
      and Dust Brush
      Metal File
      (it can damage the nail)
    • 40. Softening Cuticles
      Push up the cuticle in a circular motion using the corner of the cotton stick with light pressure.
      The circular movements will prevent damage to the skin.
      DO THIS FIRST:
      Apply cuticle remover and
      soak fingers in a soapy lukewarm water for 5 min
      Cotton Stick or Orange Stick
    • 41. Applying Nail Polish
      Apply thin coat of nail polish,
      let it dry and then apply another coat.
      Starting at the base of the nail and applying polish
      in an upward motion helps you evenly coat your nail.
      Bottles of Nail Polish
