Cuticles Ė they just seem to grow Ė what can I do instead of cutting?

  • The true cuticle is the thin, transparent sheath of dead skin cells that sheds from the eponychium onto the nail plate and forms a seal against foreign materials and micro-organisms.
  • Pterygium refers to a condition in which the skin of the eponychium abnormally attaches to the nail plate. As the nail grows, the proximal nail fold is stretched over the nail, forming an extension of skin.
  • Many techs wrongly identify Pterygium as excessive true cuticle and attempt to cut, push, or remove it. Pterygium is living skin and should not be cut.
DOíS AND DONíTS

Donít cut the eponychium, ever. Hangnails and dry dead skin may be removed carefully.
Deal with thick cuticles by using an exfoliant, cuticle remover, or allowing the cuticle to repair itself with the aid of moisturizers.

Do remove excess true cuticle from the nail plate. The true cuticle may be removed from the nail plate using a curette, cuticle pumice stone, or similar implement, never go underneath the eponychium to remove true cuticle.

Donít go overboard at the free edge. Dead skin can build up under the free edge, at the hyponyhium. Like the eponychium, the hyponychium forms a seal around the nail plate. You should be careful not to break this seal when removing dead skin from under the free edge. Donít cut the hyponychium.
