The First Line of Defense

Life support often depends on a small matter that yields huge benefits.

Simply trimming nails even with the ends of the fingers and polishing them with a multi-grit buffer improves keyboard efficiency, leaves nails flexible and the fingertips sensitive, and prevents hangnails, a significant source of infection.

Be gentle with the buffer so nails don’t get too thin, and don’t worry about looking over-groomed: the first time you wash your hands will dull the gloss.
