Though you may only think about your cuticles when you get a manicure, they’re not just hanging out on your hands. They serve a purpose, and they need care, here are 3 important steps to take.
1. Don’t Cut Your Cuticles.
Cutting your cuticles can also lead to nail problems, irritations and infections, push your cuticles back gently with a wooden orange stick instead.
2. Moisturize.It’s essential to keep them moisturized. Cuticles get dry, cracked, peeled, and flaked. A good moisturizer for the cuticles is important. Be sure to moisten your hands regularly.
3. Avoid Rough Manicurists.Before getting your nails done, tell your manicurist that you only want your cuticles pushed back very gently with an orange stick, nothing more. If she pushes the cuticles too vigorously, ask her to stop right away.
