Clean Your Hands:Start with clean hands to prevent introducing bacteria to the cuticle area.
Soak Your Nails:Soak your nails in warm, soapy water for about 5 minutes to soften the cuticles. You can add a drop of gentle liquid soap to a bowl of warm water.
Gently Push Back Cuticles:Use a cuticle pusher or a wooden stick to gently push back the softened cuticles. Be gentle to avoid causing any damage.
Apply Cuticle Oil: – Pour a small amount of cuticle oil or natural oil into a small bowl or dish. – Dip a cotton swab or your fingertips into the oil.
Massage and Stimulate Blood Circulation: – Gently massage the oil into the cuticles for a few minutes. This helps stimulate blood circulation, promoting nail and cuticle health.
Optional: Wear Cotton Gloves or Socks: – If you can, wear cotton gloves or socks on your hands overnight. This helps to retain moisture and allows the oils to penetrate deeply.
Leave Overnight: – Allow the oil to work overnight. The extended exposure time will help the oil penetrate the cuticles and nourish the nails.
Morning Routine: – In the morning, wash your hands with lukewarm water. – If you used gloves or socks, remove them.
Repeat as Needed: – For optimal results, repeat this process regularly, ideally a few times a week or as needed
