Cuticles protect the nail by sealing off the opening between nail and skin and they keep the germs and the bacteria away from the roots and form the nails too and it is very important.
But to get the maximum benefits from this you need to protect and look after them too, cause If you don’t care of your cuticles, then they will get prone to hangnails and dryness and the extreme conditions like wounds, bleeding and fungus.
Ways To Care For Your Cuticles
1- Never Cut Cuticles
Although it is becoming a fashion to cut off Cuticles to look good and perfect with long and sleek nails, but when we do that we kind of snatch the shield of our nails and put a welcome sign to the nails for germs and the bacteria and the other reason I am totally against of cutting it is when we start cutting our cuticles we kind of disturb the natural look of our nails and production and repair of skin around our nails and then which is totally wrong, you should find the way to look good with your natural look.
2- Never Push Them Back
Honestly speaking, it is worse than cutting them, you literally make them injured and if you really have to do that then you have to make sure that they are not dry when you push them, it is best to put some cuticle softener which are available in the market and then use soft stick or orange cuticle stick to push then back from the moon of your nails, but not too much, keep your hands soft and care for your cuticles and don’t damage them.
3- Use moisturizer
This is the best thing to get the perfect look, if you keep your nails and your cuticles moisturizer and healthy then you will see that you don’t need to push them back or cut them, they perfectly fine when they are natural, the way God created them, you just need to take some essential oils and I would say olive oil and rub over your hands and over your nails and cuticles everyday without any fail and keep rubbing it till it get fully absorbed and then wipe off the excessive oil and go to sleep.
4- Maintain a healthy routine of trimming and filing your nails and make sure you keep your nails and your hands neat and clean and it is very important for healthy and beautiful hands and nails.
5- Last but not the least, eat healthy and balanced food and keep your body hydrated for care for your cuticles.
