Cuticles protect our nails from external influences and present a barrier to
infections that are easily spread on nails and skin that surrounds them.
Taking good care of them stands as a base of proper nail care.
Dipping fingers in warm water for a few minutes greatly reduces
the effort of pushing them back.
They should not be cut using scissors
or a cuticle remover. They should be pushed back, using a wash cloth.
Only the excess skin should be cut.
