What is the Proper Way to Cut Your Toenails?

What is the Proper Way to Cut Your ToenailsCutting your toenails may seem like an easy process, but it should not be done carelessly. People don't usually need to visit a professional to take care of their toes, but people with diabetes are an exception. They need to cut their nails properly to reduce the risk of future foot problems.

Toenails should be cut straight across with toenail cutters then smoothed at the edges with an emory board. Digging too much into the corners can cause an ingrown toenail. Remember to clean your toenail cutters with alcohol every time you cut your toenails!
