Cuticles aren’t just the annoying piece of skin on the
bottom of your nail; they actually serve a purpose. Cuticles help prevent germs
and bacteria from getting into that sneaky area where your nail starts. If your
cuticle is removed, you open up an entryway to infection.
Getting rid of cuticle also can be pretty difficult and hard
to master. It’s tough to remove all your cuticles without snipping too low. And
watch out: This seriously hurts—it can cause bleeding and leaves your fingers
feeling sore for days. Ouch!
So what are you supposed to do about your cuticles, you ask?
There is another safer and healthier option. Push ’em back! To do this, first
soak your fingers in warm water for five to 10 minutes, then apply a drop of moisturizer
or petroleum jelly to each cuticle. With
an orangewood manicure stick, gently push back each cuticle. Dry them off and you’ve got salon perfect
(and safe) nails!
