Hands are prominent parts of the body and are basically used in taking care of the whole body so ignoring the hands would be the most unfair thing to do. Our hands perform so many tasks like eating, self-cleansing, cooking, cleaning and other regular chores of the house and due to this they are subjected to more chances of getting harmed by the constant contact with water and other synthetic things like soaps & detergents. These things sometimes damage the tissues of the skin of the hand and they feel dried and scaly because of constant exposure to these things.

One of the common problems which every woman faces is the problem of cuticles. These tend to distort the natural health of the nails and look bad if they are ignored. Cuticle is the protective layer of skin which surrounds the nail. They act as binding tissues of the nails and keep them intact and protect from damage & breakage.

Here we will discuss about the cuticle problem and the effective ways in which one can easily get rid of dry cuticles.

Moisturize your hand & cuticles

It is really important to keep the cuticle tissues well moisturized as they are always at the risk of being exposed to harsh substances which tend to make them dry and cause them to break. It is advisable to employ a good hand cream for this purpose and let your cuticles absorb the essential moisture so that they remain soft.
