How To Rmove Cuticle


Regular nail trimming not only looks good, but also prevents some physical injuries.

Generally speaking, the skin cycle is 28 days, the stratum corneum will follow the metabolism of the natural shedding, if the old cells are too late to detach, they will accumulate in the surface layer of the skin, forming the old waste keratin, also known as dead skin.

If you don't take care of your hands and nails in general, it's easy to form dead skin.

If you have not removed dead skin before and the area around the nail is hard to the touch, you can use dead skin pliers to remove the dead skin.

Soak your hands in warm water for 15 minutes, use dead skin pliers to cut off the dead skin and barbs near the nail, be sure to choose a sharp dead skin pliers, cut off directly, do not pull, or very painful.

But usually the cuticle next to the nail is very fragile. The cuticle blocks bacteria from entering the nail bed and is a barrier that protects the nail from infection, so don't over clean the cuticle.

Generally speaking, if you take good care of your nails and cuticles every day, your nails will not accumulate a lot of dead skin with normal metabolism.

When it comes to exfoliating, the question arises, should I push back the nail cuticle?

In a nail salon, the nail technician usually removes or pushes back the cuticle to make the nail more slender and the nail effect more visible.

However, it is best not to do so in daily care, as this can disrupt the physiological function of the nail cuticle.

The nail cuticle is a thin layer of skin underneath the nail that protects the nail matrix from invading germs and foreign objects.

If the nail cuticle is removed or pushed back, the nail matrix is unprotected and bacteria can easily enter, causing the subcutaneous tissue to become red, swollen and painful, and if the infection is severe, it can quickly become septic and form a nail infection.

If the nail cuticle have shrunk or disappeared, soak your fingers in warm water for 10-15 minutes daily, gently dry them with a hot towel, and then massage your fingers with a nourishing cream to promote the re-growth of the nail cuticle .
