We love our long pretty nails and shiny polish, but when you go to get a manicure, you should not push back or cut off your cuticles. But there are mixed opinions.

Cuticles are important to maintain and not to be removed. They are there to protect your nails from bacteria and infection. Always tell your nail technician not to cut the cuticles, just trim hangnails and loose skin that is visible after pushing cuticles back.

Many people are cutting improperly and improper cutting can allow bacteria to enter the body. Live skin should not be cut. It can also be an issue if tools are not properly sanitised for use and you are cut with them.

Trimming or cutting cuticles during a manicure is purely cosmetic and does not benefit the nail in any way. In fact, it is actually harmful to your nails.
