Home Remedies To Treat Cracked Cuticles.

The skin around the nails gradually becomes rough, coarse and dry and later the  skin begins to split, and dry cuticles appear.The cuticles are essential as they protect the nails from infections, providing a protective barrier from bacteria and act as a seal between the finger and the nail.
Here are some easy tips to treat cracked cuticles.
1)Moisturising is the best remedy for cracked cuticles. There are special cuticle moisturisers available in the market, or you could use a good cream or lotion.
2)Being a natural moisturiser, Vitamin E oil can also be used to take care of dried and cracked cuticles.Just pour some oil into a bowl and let them soak for up to 10 minutes, then wipe with a damp towel.
3)Also try shea nut butter. Shea butter or shea nut butter is naturally occurring fat, yellow or cream in colour, and it is a good moisturiser.
4)Mix honey, beeswax, plant butters and organic neem oil to make a sort of ‘nail balm’ for cracked cuticles.
5)Use a cuticle pusher to push your cuticles once a week. This prevents them from getting cracked further.
6)Choose liquid soaps as they are less drying and contain more moisturizing natural indgredients and have antibacterial properties.
7)Exfoliate your hands and nails once a week to get rid of rough, dry cuticles
8)Always remove all cuticle cream or oil before polishing your nails.
