How to take care of your cuticles?

It's not always easy to know how to take care of your cuticles. Should they be moisturised, pushed back, cut? With which care and which tools should you use? Let's take stock of the situation together!

What are cuticles?

Cuticles are the very thin skins found around the nail that protect it from the inclusion of bacteria. This is a very important area that requires a good nail care ritual to avoid the risk of the skin growing on the nail, curling up or hardening.

If this is the case, they can become unsightly and prevent a perfect manicure on both hands and feet.

How to take care of your cuticles. All our advice!

Should you cut or regrow your cuticles?

This is the question that everyone asks when it comes to caring for their cuticles. First of all, you need to be well equipped. You can opt for the special wooden cuticle stick or metal cuticle remover (our favourite tool) to push them back. If you want to cut them, it is best to do so with a pair of (special) cuticle nippers. However, if you do use tweezers, be aware that they can be more difficult to handle.

Cuticle nippers can cut cuticles quickly, but they can also hurt you. By cutting them, you can leave the door open to bacteria.

What beauty ritual to adopt to take care of your cuticles?

____

  • Soak your fingertips in a warm water bath for 5-10 minutes.
  • Apply nail oil to the nails and cuticles and massage in circular motions with the pad of your thumb.
  • Leave for 5 minutes.
  • Using a wooden stick, gently push back the cuticles and cut off any stubborn skin with a pair of cuticle cutters.
  • Apply in the evening and leave on overnight.
  • Always carry a hand and nail cream in your bag to moisturise your cuticles regularly.

If you don't have time to leave it on overnight, you can remove the excess with a cotton pad. On the other hand, in the weeks when you don't wear nail polish, you can apply the oil every night to boost your nails and effectively fight against stubborn cuticles.
