Are there any effective natural remedies to combat dry cuticles? Of course. First of all, even if the temptation is great, remember that they should never be torn off with scissors or teeth.

Let's see how to take care of this important part of the body.
Dry and hard cuticles: what to do?
Cuticles are skin thickenings located at the root of the nail. While many can't stand them, it's good to know that they perform a very important defense function. This is why it is necessary to take care of it in the best possible way. When the cuticles are dry and hard, a shock treatment is urgent. In any case, always remember that this skin thickening must never overlap the surface of the nail.
First of all, when they are dry or hard it is forbidden to cut them with scissors or tear them with your teeth or hands. You have to soften them with a special product or with one of the many remedies that nature offers you. Opt for a gluten-free oil or a DIY compound based on extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Apply a little and then soak your hands in warm water with the addition of a teaspoon of baking soda. Wait five minutes and then start the actual treatment. With the classic wooden stick push back the cuticles and then remove them with a file. Last step? A nourishing cream.
