Get a pedicure once a week, or at least once in 15 days. If you can't get a pedicure, be sure to clean the and cut your nails regularly.

Cut your nails in square shape and round off the edges. But be sure not to go deep around the edges. Pointed edges may grow to dig into the flesh. Use a nail clipper to cut the nails.

For those who work, make sure to keep an extra footwear in office. Damp or wet footwear will only leave your feet soggy and wrinkled. It may even lead to some fungal infection in between the toes, thus leading to candidiasis, which a common infection of the skin going white and patchy .

Use anti-fun gal powder between the toes if you get an infection.

Use olive oil or cuticle cream to soften the cuticles. A hand cream works as well as it contains urea that exfoliates dead cells. Of the products that contain urea are Nutregena hand and nail cream and vaseline hand and nail cream.
