How to Use Cuticle Oil

October 7, 2022

The cuticle is a living thin skin responsible for protecting the growing nail plate. If you do not care of cuticles, this can provoke a number of inconveniences — burrs, sloppy nail contours, loss of attractiveness of your manicure. Using cuticle oil can easily help with these issues.

What is cuticle oil

Cuticle oil is an effective care product for maintaining the beauty and neat look of nails. It contains a mixture of essential and vegetable oils, moisturizing ingredients, as well as vitamins and antioxidants that are responsible for healthy nail growth.

How cuticle oil works

Moisturizes, nourishes, softens, restores the cuticle, making it more elastic, and the nail contour neat and well-groomed. The oils in the composition form a protective veil that prevents the evaporation of water from the skin, while glycerin and panthenol retain moisture, providing hands with nourishment and softness.

The use of cuticle oil helps to preserve the beauty and health of not only the cuticle, but also the nail plate itself, gives the nails strength and flexibility, accelerates the polymerization process, and also prevents the appearance of chipped nail polish.

Why you need cuticle oil

First of all, oil is necessary if your nails exfoliate, cuticles are damaged, or burrs appear. When doing a manicure, the oil will protect from dryness and inflammation, make the cuticle smooth and elastic, and improve the quality of the manicure. Also, if you often do gel polish, additional care for your hands will definitely be a good idea. Not to mention that a couple of drops of oil will refresh the look of your nails and restore their shine in just seconds.

How to use cuticle oil

It is recommended to apply the oil with massage movements on the contour of each nail, against the growth of the cuticle. This will improve blood circulation and accelerate the effect of nutrients. You can do this before and after a manicure, as well as leave the product overnight for complete absorption. If after the oil you plan to apply nail polish, you should degrease the nail plate prior to that.
