4 Tips for Avoiding Ingrown Toenails
The summer is here and the sandals are out! Are your toes ready? Before you head to the spa or break out your DIY kit (or Pinterest ideas), check out these tips for avoiding ingrown toenails. 4 Tips for Avoiding Ingrown Toenails
Cut your toenails straight across - don't make a rounded shape
Clean and trim your toenails and cuticles regularly - wash them daily, and have a thorough pedicure once a month, either DIY or at Pink & White
Be careful where and how much you trim - cutting the skin or tearing the cuticle can lead to ingrowns
Don't wear shoes that are too small - this is the #1 cause of ingrown toenails
In the event you ever do have an ingrown, you should immediately seek a medical professional - not a nail salon. Doctors should be used to remove, while salons/spas can help keep them away.
