Take care of your calluses – Calluses and corns are the hardened areas of skin that can develop crack if they become too thick. Try to soak your feet in warm water for some time and then using foot file, pumice stone or scrub, exfoliate the dead and dry skin cells from calluses area. Apply moisturizer after removing dead skin cells. And it is best to avoid going barefoot to prevent formation of calluses.

Remove nail polish frequently - Living dark and dramatic shades of nail polish color such as red and purple on your nails for long time can stain then yellow. Therefore try to remove such color before it stains your nails using proper nail polish remover and keep them clean and without any color for some time for natural look.
