Wash your face twice a day and make sure to wash the rest of your body frequently in order to keep your skin healthy.

This puts less strain on your hair’s roots and your hair will be healthier.

You can maintain their health in the same way as your fingernails, but be sure you’re clipping them straight across to prevent ingrown toenails.
