Your Cuticles are extremely important to the healthy growth of your nails. The cuticle covers the base of your nail where the growth is generated. That being said, it’s very important that the growth area under your cuticles stays healthy.
1) Practice gently pushing your cuticles back:
Don’t push too hard as you want to avoid injury or irritation to your nail growth area. Some people use a wooden orange stick. I use a soft emery board that was designed to buff the nail. I gently push back on my cuticles once a week when I do my manicure.
2) Keep your cuticles soft:
The cuticle is just skin. If your cuticles appear dry or cracked, they need to be moisturized. Any lotion you would use on your hands you can use on your cuticles. Just add a dab of your favorite lotion to your cuticle area and gently massage in. When I wash dishes I wear gloves. The gloves keep my hands / cuticles away from the dehydrating agent in the dish detergent. If you use nail polish remover make sure that its acetone free. The acetone is a drying agent that can wreak havoc with your cuticles.
COOLA has developed an extraordinary delightful and natural hand lotion bar. I tried the GrapefruitPeppermint all natural shea butter Hand Lotion Bar and fell in love. This is my first time working with a hand lotion bar and I found the experience therapeutically enriching.
COOLA Grapefruit Peppermint Hand Lotion Bar has become a “must have”. During the winter months my knuckles become very dry and cracked. COOLA has designed this Hand Lotion Bar to help hydrate your hands, and they have succeeded in their endeavor. My knuckles were so cracked it actually hurt to bend my fingers. The first time I used this product the results were visible. The hand lotion bar actually appeared to be erasing the dry lines and cracks. I worked the product into my knuckles every evening for a few weeks and the cracks literally disappeared. The warmth from my knuckles turned the ingredients into a deeply moisturizing and soothing balm that healed the cracks. After applying the Hand Lotion Bar to my knuckles and rubbing it in, the palms of my hands also benefited, they too felt wonderfully soft.
COOLA developed this product using all natural ingredients. The Hand Lotion Bar is designed so you use only the amount necessary, there’s no waste. COOLA packaged this product so it’s perfect when you’re traveling.
I followed the directions by using my favorite moisturizing hand lotion and wearing a glove overnight.
I did the testing on one hand. The following morning I could see a difference between the hand that had a glove and the hand without a glove. I tested for 5 consecutive nights. At the end of my testing the differences between my hands were remarkable. My gloved hand was much softer and my skin was visibly smoother.
Like many of you, my hands crack and become very dry during the winter months. I’m looking forward to using these gloves so I can show off my remarkably soft hands all winter!
The benefits don’t end, there’s more…………. These gloves are made from “ultra soft, sustainable bamboo”. The gloves stretched to fit my hands perfectly and stayed on all night. They’re washable so you can use them over and over again and the price makes affordable.
