Don't cut your nails too short and don't cut your calluses at all

With or without varnish – well-groomed feet can look very nice. But it is not only for aesthetic reasons that you should be careful when cutting and filing the nails and planing the callus.

Frankfurt / Main (dpa / tmn) – Those who care for their feet shouldn’t cut their nails too short. The nail should line up with the end of the toe. This is not only important from a fashion point of view.

In particular, you shouldn’t cut too much away from the nail corners, explains Birgit Huber from the Association of Toiletries and Detergents. Otherwise the nail corners can grow into the skin – and that can be very painful.

File, cut and plane with care

To shorten the nails, it is best to use special nail scissors or a clipper. The toenails should not be filed round, but should always be as straight as possible, advises Huber. Otherwise it can happen that they also grow in.

To gently push the cuticle back, Huber recommends using a soft stick. Cutting the very sensitive cuticle, however, is taboo. Huber warns, especially since the skin can become inflamed with the smallest injuries.

Edit the cornea

Calluses should also be removed regularly – not only for aesthetic reasons, but also because it usually makes the feet uncomfortably dry. However, you should never cut away the cornea. Otherwise it will grow back stronger.

Caution is also advised with a slicer or rasp – this increases the risk of injuring yourself or removing too much skin, Huber warns. Callus files or, if the callus is coarse, a pumice stone are better suited for this.
