A: Dermatologists caution against cutting your cuticles because removing that protective layer of skin can invite infection. As dermatologist Richard Scher tells WebMD, “If you remove the cuticle, that space is wide open, and anything can get in there.” Instead of cutting your cuticles, gently push them back with a wooden manicure stick like Tweezerman Manicure Pedicure Sticks. Don’t forget to moisturize regularly with an ointment or cream to keep your skin supple and nails healthy.
A: 3-Free means that the polish does not contain three ingredients considered toxic and potentially harmful. These three ingredients are formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified formaldehyde as a known carcinogen, or cancer-causing agent. The Environmental Protection Agency cites that toluene can cause harm to organs and is a toxic substance. Scientists have said that dibutyl phthalate may cause bodily harm. These chemicals cause the most damage through inhalation, so unless you know that your nail polish is 3-free, make sure you do your nails in a well-ventilated area. Some non-toxic brands are Butter LONDON and Spa Ritual.
