Hands, if not kept clean can be the source of ill-health. The hands come into direct contact with food and everything we touch. It is very important to wash them after using the toilet and before eating, before handling food and whenever they are dirty.
The habit of nail-biting is not right and often causes pain. Dirty fingernails can introduce germs into the body. The process by which the hands are softened, fingernails are trimmed, cleaned and sometimes, varnished is called manicure. A manicure can be done on your hands and fingernails by you at home. Professional manicure can also be obtained at the beauty shop at a price.
Painting or varnishing of fingernails is an old art of grooming. In some parts of the county locally available dyes are applied to the nails and hands to give colour and beautify them. The modern approach is the use of commercially available nail varnish, which comes in an array of colours. Nail varnishes should be chosen carefully. Avoid colours that are vulgar or loud. When too bright or too dull a colour is used, the fingernails appear repulsive, and are uncomplimentary to you. Fingernails can also be well groomed without being painted.
Some habits to cultivate in caring for your hands are, wash your hands before meal, before handling food or cooking, after using toilet and whenever they are dirty. Do not bite your nails.
