Take care of your cuticles
Cuticles are thin skins around fingernails or toenails. It is a protective barrier against bacteria. This is why you have to take care of your cuticles. In this article, your expert nail supplier Maryton will give you some steps to take care of your cuticles.
Step 1: soften cuticles
The first step is to soften them. You can do this in a simple way by soaking your hands (or your feet) in hot water with a few drops of lemon, for 5 minutes. Then, dry.
Step 2: push back cuticles
Once the cuticles have softened, they need to be pushed back. Do it with a wooden stick, or special plastic nails.
Tip: don’t cut the cuticles. It affects the health of the nail and they grow back three times thicker than before.
Step 3: moisturize and nourish your cuticles
They can be moisturized and nourished with sweet almond oil, or with a special cuticle moisturizer. Apply by massaging the cuticles. Preferably, perform this operation in the evening before going to bed, so that the product can act as much as possible.
- Cuticle care should be done once a week at most.
- If your cuticles are really very dry, soften them with an olive oil bath.
- If a cuticle is invasive, don’t pull on it. You can cut off the protruding end with a small manicure scissor, and then moisturize and nourish well.
