Natural Nail Care Tips for People Over Fifty

Keeping Your Hands Very Clean

This is a very important element to do if you want great nails at any age, especially after the age of fifty. Making sure that your nails are always clean will help to prevent you from getting fungus around the nailbed. What you can do other than wash your hands is to take a toothbrush, apply soap to your toothbrush and clean in between and up under your nails to make sure that you have gotten all the extra crud and dirt out from under your nails. It would hurt to also scrub the skin around your nails too because if there are any left dirt and germs on the surface of your skin, that will seep down into the nailbed as well.
