What is the function of the cuticles?

The junction between the skin of the finger and the nail of the hand (or foot) is called the nail cuticle. What does it do? In this article, the nail supply expert Maryton will give you answers. Keep reading!

An extremely thin layer, the cuticle is essentially made up of cornea and epidermis. It constitutes the main barrier against dust and bacteria which could be responsible for infection on the root of the nail. The cuticle is a protection for the nail matrix.

We therefore advise you never to cut your cuticles, otherwise you will break this natural barrier against infections and leave the door open to microbes and bacteria. Pushing the cuticles is more than enough.

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure sets to care for nails.
