What causes Bleeding and Peeling Cuticles?

Young-HandsAs we grow older our body produces less oil by itself and so we kind of dry up! And our cuticles show this very quickly. The good news is you can turn them around in a very short space of time with a bit of TLC.

Constant emersion in water also plays havoc with hands, nails and cuticles causing them to be dry and fake with dehydration.

This can also be worse in winter when the harsher cold weather robs our skin and hands of moisture.

If your cuticles are constantly fraying and if you then pick at them and they bleed this is your body telling you your hands and nails need some moisturising help from you.

Health problems can also show up in the nails and sometime cuticles and if you have distinct long term problems that concern you go to your GP to rule out any underlying problems. In fact if you consult a practioner of Chinese Medicine he/she will always look and take note of your nails before diagnosis.
