A Man's Guide to Caring for Hands & Nails, Manhattan, New York

Taking care of your nails creates a positive impression no matter the gender. Learning the basics of nail care will make you appear more polished and groomed. To help you prevent painful nuisances, like hangnails, between manicure appointments, protect your hands using the information in this guide.

How to Properly Trim Your Nails

To get healthy nails, clip them at least every two weeks. Keeping your nails short will also prevent pesky ingrown nails.

Using sharp clippers, trim off the tip of each nail straight across, then round out the edges with a filer. Make sure you don’t leave any jagged edges, which could cause discomfort. Also, don’t trim too close to the pink part to avoid bleeding.

How to Moisturize Your Hands 

Moisturizing your knuckles and nails every day will not only help soothe dry skin, but also prevent hangnails. Any body moisturizer will do the trick, but stick to unscented kinds if you tend to have skin irritation.

Habits to Avoid

To keep your nails healthy, don’t bite them. Doing this can expose them to bacteria that cause infections. Picking at your cuticles is also a way for bacteria to sneak in.

Another common habit that isn't healthy is pulling off your hangnails. Doing so brings a strip of skin with the nail, creating a bigger and more painful wound. If you have a hangnail, use a clipper to carefully cut it away.
