The warm water will soften the cuticles. During the soaking period, gently massage your hands. Brush the nails and the skin around it with the nail brush. This will get the blood flow through your fingers. Take a pumice stone and rub it on the fingers, both on the inner and upper side. A pumice stone gently removes the dead skin from the fingers.
When the cuticles have become soft, dab some amount of cuticle remover on the nail base. This will ease the pushing back of the cuticles. Hold the orange stick at an angle and push the dry skin of the cuticles towards the nail base. Also, push back the cuticles along the sides of your nails. Perform this step as gently as possible.
If dead skin chips are present, wipe them away with a cotton pad. Do not use a cotton ball as it may leave streaks behind. Buff the nails in one direction. Do not rub them as rubbing may heat up the nails. The purpose is to improve blood circulation through the nails. Try this procedure once or twice a month, and you will love the experience.
