How to properly remove the cuticle

A few decades ago, during a manicure, the cuticle was practically ignored, or they simply cut it off with scissors or tweezers. Today, the method of removing the cuticle without circumcision is most often used, which involves its preliminary softening with special means.

In order to know how to properly remove the cuticle, it is not at all necessary to be a professional manicurist. It is enough to study certain principles for removing the cuticle at home and follow the following sequence of actions:

  1. The first step is to remove the old varnish from the nails, wash your hands thoroughly and wipe them dry. Next, gently apply a special gel to remove the cuticle in such a way that it does not get on the nail itself in any case, and wait from 3 to 10 minutes (depending on the type of gel used) until the cuticle softens. Among the nail care products on the world market, Sally Hansen’s Instant Cuticle Remover is considered the best. It does not irritate the skin and gently removes the cuticle, while not having an unpleasant odor.
  2. Instead of a gel, cuticle oil can be used, but it is worth remembering that it only works effectively when an unedged manicure is done at least once a week. Oil can be applied not only to the cuticle, but also to the entire nail, since it does not have a negative effect on the nail plate, but, on the contrary, additionally nourishes and strengthens it. CND Solar oil contains jojoba oil and vitamin E, which nourishes and softens cuticles, making your nails stronger.

The next step is to gently push back the cuticle to the nail bed with an orange tree stick. Do not press too hard on the nail and push back the cuticle with sudden movements, as this can damage the nail bed. It is best to hold the wand at an angle of approximately 45 degrees to the nail and move it as slowly as possible.

Next, you can use sharp tweezers to remove the cuticle if it looks torn or a little uneven. However, with regular manicures, tweezers simply become unnecessary, since the cuticle already looks quite well-groomed.

In conclusion, you should wash your hands again with warm water and a mild detergent and apply a nourishing cream with an anti-inflammatory effect on them, carefully rubbing it into the nail bed. If necessary, immediately apply any varnish to the nails, they must first be degreased, and the place of the removed cuticle should be treated with an antiseptic solution.Cuticle removal without circumcision

Those who are afraid to do an unedged manicure themselves should at least once contact an experienced manicure master who can clearly show how to properly remove the cuticle.

With a limited amount of free time, you can use a pencil to remove the cuticle, the effect of which manifests itself in just a few seconds. However, it should be remembered that the use of such a pencil is an emergency measure and does not eliminate the need for regular manicure and cuticle care.
