Keep Your Cuticles

Keep Your Cuticles

Instead of cutting your cuticles, just push them back carefully about once a month (unless they’re sticking out or catching on things). To prevent that, moisturize your nails regularly with a hand or hand-and-nail lotion. Cuticles protect the nail bed from bacterial infections, so cutting them creates a potential break in the shield, enabling bacteria, fungi, or viruses to enter the nail.
