There are numerous health benefits to properly maintaining healthy feet and nails for both men and women. Your feet take a beating, and if you happen to be carrying extra weight on your frame, your feet get the brunt of it. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to about 115,000 miles over a lifetime. Cutting, clipping and cleaning of the nails prevents nails from growing inward and causing infection. The elimination of dirt and bacteria from your feet will also help prevent nail diseases and disorders and helps eliminate foot odor. If using salons for pedicures, look specifically for salons where patient safety, proper hygiene and caution are the number one focus.
