With spring here and summer on the way, get ready for open toed shoes and sandals! If you are hiding your unsightly nails under heavy coats of polish or concealing them in your winter boots, it’s time to do something to prepare your feet and hands for summer fashions.
Many people suffer from thickening of the nail beds or ugly, yellowing nails. Dark or dull nails, lacking healthy luster and shine, is another sign that fungus has crept in under the nail.
There are a number of things you can do to counteract this problem. Fungus flourishes in a moist environment, so walking around in sweaty socks is only going to make the problem worse. Be sure you keep your feet dry, changing your socks if necessary. Absorbent socks, preferably cotton or wool, will also help. Do wear water proof sandals in public shower areas, as cleanliness helps prevent reinfection. And be sure your nail salon properly sterilizes their instruments, as this can be another source of contamination. Don’t borrow or lend your own personal manicure tools either. And avoid artificial nails, as they tend to have a negative impact on your nails, weakening them further.
Nail fungus can be difficult to completely get rid of. This is because the nail is designed to keep fungus and other contaminants out, but once inside, it also tends to work to keep them in. If you are using a treatment on your nails, be sure to be consistent and keep applying even after the condition has cleared up, as nail fungus has a tendency to return.
There are very effective natural remedies available to clear up problem nails. Tea tree oil is one ingredient often found in natural nail treatments. Tea tree oil is recognized as a potent antiseptic, killing bacteria and fungus on contact. Oil of clove can also do the job. Clove oil is an herbicide used in natural and organic farming to get rid of mold and weeds safely and without toxicity.
