You Have Cuticles? Here Is How They Occur And How To Remove Them!

Cuticles on the hands are a very common problem. They usually occur from nibbling nails or the skin around the nails.

It is an inflammatory process that is in the root of the nail. It can often happen for the skin around the nail to swell, crack or for a redness to occur. If the inflammation is not treated in time, it can spread and cause intense pain.

Besides looking very ugly, cuticles can become infected and cause major problems.

How to treat cuticles?

1. First you need to remove the dead skin located on the root of the nail. Try not to use someone else’s nail kit. It is extremely important that the nail kit you use only belongs to you because sharing nail kit can often lead to exchanges of bacteria found in skin around the nail, thus making a problem.

2. If you have inflammation of the cuticle then we highly advise you to carefully remove excess skin that is dry, and the rest to treat it the following way -- first clean the skin with soap and then well moisten the nails and skin with greasy cream.

3. When you remove dead skin from around the nail from which cuticles occur, make sure the skin does not wrinkle.

4. If your irritated and red skin that is around the nails it is itchy, that means it has come to bacteria and fungi. If the itching does not stop even after you have washed your hands or clean then with alcohol, try disinfected with hydrogen.

5. Do not nibble your nails and cuticles. Also, it is very important what you enter into your body. Make sure the food you enter be rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, calcium and zinc. It will ensure the rapid growth of nails.

6. Do not wash your hands frequently. If you use any harsh chemicals then you need to regularly use moisturizing cream for hands and nails.

It is highly important for the skin to be wet, because dry skin is prone to cracking. It is desirable the acetone you use to be oily.
