Information About Cuticle Oil

Nicks J
Apart from following a well-balanced diet, use of cuticle oil is equally important to maintain nail health. It is often applied on dry nails to restore their natural look.
The skin that lies at the base of each nail is referred to as cuticle. This is a thick, tough layer of skin that gives stability and support to the nails. The best way to keep cuticles and nails in good condition is to regularly use cuticle oil.


Common problems such as dry cuticles, hangnails, and torn skin of the cuticle, can always be avoided by using cuticle oil. Its daily application can make the cuticles smooth and soft. It restores as well as preserves normal moisture levels in the cuticle. Most importantly, it provides immediate relief from dry and swollen cuticles.
In case you thought that the benefits of this natural oil are restricted to improving nail health, then you are wrong. You can also apply it directly on your hands and feet. As a deep moisturizer, it can work wonders to keep the skin soft and glowing.


Cuticle oil is 100% natural oil and does not contain any artificial chemicals. All these ingredients given below promote nail health:
  • Vitamin E
  • Almond oil
  • Avocado oil

How to Use

After washing your hands or taking a bath, you need to apply this oil gently on the cuticles. Application of 1-2 drops of the oil on each finger is more than sufficient for daily use.
Using the fingertips, one can massage the cuticles with this oil. The massage should be stopped when the oil gets absorbed in the cuticles. Now repeat this procedure for the rest of the fingers.
Once it has been applied to all the fingers, do not rinse your hands for at least an hour. Applying this oil just before going to sleep at night is recommended, as the cuticles get ample time to absorb this oil completely. Massaging it daily will also help to improve blood flow in the nail bed, thereby enhancing nail health.
For healthy looking nails, use of natural oil is an ideal solution and the most preferred one by both men and women alike. It is an easy way to keep the nails healthy and strong, years down the line.
