The cuticle is a skin that protect the nail in its entire base. It prevents the entry of bacteria, fungi and preserves the shape and quality of the nail.
To keep your cuticles without removing them, follow some tips:
- Thread a cuticle softener around your fingers. Wait between 3 and 5 minutes. If you do not have this product at home, apply a moisturizer and dip your hands in a pot with warm water.
- Then pick up an orange slice or a spatula and gently stroke it around the nail
- Then, wipe your fingers with a towel to remove excess cream, sand your nails and apply a moisturizer to your hands. Now, just choose your favorite enamel and leave with hands, nails and cuticles beautiful.
For those who want to stop taking cuticles with pliers, a good idea is to use cuticle removers. Here are some suggestions for cuticle remover:
- Cuticle Remover, Mavala
- Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover
- Mira-Cuticle Complete Avon Cuticle Reducer
- Velox Cuticle Remover
The cuticle remover is a creamy product that you should apply on the bottom of the nail,and on top of the cuticle.You can also buy a specific hydration product for cuticles. I personally use the Deliplus brand, from Mercadona.You can use the hand cream that you normally use . This is recommended every time when you wet your hands or wash them. Put them cream and massage well in the cuticles, so you’ll look beautiful and well-groomed hands.
What Is The Purpose Of Cuticles?
According to the Brazilian Society of Dermatology (SBD), the main function of the cuticles is precisely to protect the nails. This skin prevents the entry of dirt and bacteria that can infiltrate.
- Have your own nail clippers: Salon appliances should always be sterilized. The best though is to prevent yourself from taking your own pliers. Always check to see if you are properly dented so as not to injure yourself.
- Take the removal with a professional: Even if you have nail practice, the professional will always be the best option. He has a clinical eye for this function and will know the ideal way to treat his hands.
- Avoid removing too deeply to avoid skin exposure: If you do not dispense with removal, do so superficially and without exaggeration.
- Always keep a hand moisturizing cream in the bag, especially in the winter: Creams have emollient factors that leave the hands soft and silky. Use throughout the day, especially those who have a lot of contact with abrasive products, that dry the skin.
- Avoid dead skin with your teeth: This habit can transmit fungi and bacteria to the body. What’s more, it can hurt your fingers and open doors to diseases like hepatitis.
