[According to ‘Schoonheid met natuurlijke cosmetica’]
- Do not use metal nail-files/scissors as this is the most effective way to ruin your nails.
- Do not cut the cuticle off and do not push it down with a filer.
- Try to avoid buying cuticle scissors as these are very harmful to the nail and can harden the skin of the cuticle, unless you are skilled in manicures.
- Massage the cuticle with a special creme (specifically for nail cuticles) and use a cuticle pusher to push it back. On the right is an image of a wooden cuticle pusher.
- An easy method ? Push your cuticles softly to the back with the towel when drying your hands!
- Increase growth of nail ? Massage the cuticle and the area under this in order to feed the nail its healthy nutrients.
