Why do you need cuticle oil?
Before analyzing the functions of this tool, it is worth focusing on the essence of the cuticle itself, to which women pay less attention than they should. This thin strip of skin, which adjoins the nail plate in the socket area, acts as a protective barrier. It prevents bacteria from getting close to the most delicate area of the nail, i.e. to the matrix through which all nutrients penetrate. When the master does a manicure, he cuts off the keratinized cuticle cells, however, this provokes a reaction from the body in the form of an increase in new ones and drying out of the cut site. A special cuticle oil is designed to solve this problem and perform several more tasks: to nourish the nail, because the agent is applied very close to the matrix; prevent the appearance of burrs; disinfect (for some varieties); help soften already dried skin; accelerate the growth of marigolds and strengthen them; relieve inflammation after a trim manicure; start the process of cell repair.
