How to Treat Dry or Split Cuticles with CUROXEN First Aid Ointment

How to Treat Dry or Split Cuticles with CUROXEN First Aid Ointment

If you have dry hands- whether chronic, seasonal, or out of the blue- you’ll know the struggle of splitting cuticles. Cuticles lacking moisture often flake and fray leaving bits of nail and skin that beg to be pulled. If done without the proper nail tools and technique, this act can not only be painful, it can become a breeding ground for germs leading to an all but guaranteed infection. 

If you reach the point of cracks and splits, CUROXEN First Aid Ointment will make sure you get back to where you need to be. However, there are many ways to both prevent and treat dry cuticles to make them manicure perfect without the salon visit! 

What causes split cuticles?

There are a myriad of factors that can contribute to hangnails and cuticle issues, so knowing which one is the culprit is key to the most effective preventative treatment. For most people, climate plays a HUGE part in skin health as colder temperatures and higher altitudes have air that significantly lacks moisture. Alternatively, lack of moisture inside the body may be the other major issue. If you’re not getting your recommended daily intake of water, dry skin is likely to follow. Additionally, how you use your hands could be your biggest enemy. If your daily activities require extensive hands on work, you may be fighting an uphill battle.

Of course there are also underlying health issues that can cause dry skin and nails such as diabetes, eczema, hypothyroidism, and psoriasis as well as many side effects from medications. If you have chronic dry skin, you may want to check with your healthcare professional.

How to treat

Suffering from dry cuticles doesn’t have to be a life- or seasonal- sentence. No matter the cause, there’s a treatment that will help get your hands back on track! 

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Getting at least 64 ounces of water in a day is key, but if there’s no moisture in the air, you’ll need to go a step further. Try using a humidifier at night to help your skin absorb water from the outside in.

Make lotion and hand cream your best friend

Water can get you pretty far in the way of hydrated hands, but it sometimes can’t get you all the way there. That’s where lotion and cuticle oils come in. With so many on the market, there’s bound to be one that not only targets your specific issues but has your perfect scent too.

Make gloves your latest fashion statement

Gloves are multipurpose in the fight against dryness. Using them when you wash the dishes will go a long way to healing your skin as both warm water and soap are drying agents. If the weather is chilly, you’ll want to wear a pair as often as possible to block the bitter air. Gloves can also be used to lock in a moisturizing treatment for getting silky soft digits.

Healing cracks and cuticle splits

If you’ve reached this list past the point of prevention and basic treatment, you’ll want to get onto germ fighting before investing in creams and gloves. Our hands see so much action during the day that open hand wounds- especially near the nails- are subject to terrible infections with potentially long-lasting effects. With that being the case, you’ll want to use a first aid ointment like CUROXEN to treat the affected areas.

The basic fix

Using an all-natural, non-antibiotic first aid ointment like CUROXEN will help kill germs (killing 99% of harmful germs tested: E.coli, S.aureas, P.aeruginosa, E.faecalis, and MRSA) and promote wound healing. Once applied liberally to the affected area, apply a bandage to ensure optimal results.
