How to Soften Cuticles on the Feet

by NAILS Staff | March 19, 2019

Cuticles on the feet can be tougher than those on the hands. Footlogix Professional Cuticle Softener and Cuticle Conditioner products are specifically formulated for cuticles that have hard skin build-up. They hydrate the skin while removing excess debris under the nail’s free edge.

Cuticle Softener: Apply a small amount directly onto the cuticle and nail fold of each toe and allow to absorb for 60 seconds. Cut the toenails and clean around the nails in the groove and under the free edge. Carefully remove all excess build-up of dead skin with pedicure implements. Shape the free edge, clean the cuticle area, and buff the nail plate. Re-apply Cuticle Softener as needed. Gently wipe off any remaining skin debris with a towel. Do not rinse the foot with water as the Cuticle Softener will continue to hydrate after the pedicure is completed.

Cuticle Conditioner: Once the pedicure is completed, apply a small amount of Footlogix Cuticle Conditioner directly onto the cuticle area to hydrate and condition cuticles. Massage into cuticles in a circular motion. This alcohol- and synthetic oil-free formula will hydrate toenails and cuticles and does not leave a greasy residue.
