2.Trim the fingernails and shape them with a nail file. Metal nail files or emery boards can be used. To file properly start with the file at the outer edge of the nail and move towards the center. Movement should be one side not to use vigorous filing. Use cuticle cutter to cut the nails which grows in the skin.

Some extra steps for Treating crack heels:

1.Paraffin wax: In case of cracked heels which happen due to dryness and especially during the winters, paraffin wax can apply to heal the cuts. Heat the paraffin wax in the heater and apply it with brush on the whole feet and cover with cling fling for 10 minutes.

2.Orange Peel: This is peel off mask which is used to take out the tan on the upper area of the feet.

Important: All the equipment used, must be sterilized and disinfected.
