Cuticle SOS: Common Problems and Solutions in Kenya

Cuticle SOS: Common Problems and Solutions in Kenya

Your cuticles play an essential role in protecting your nails. Yet, they can quickly become dry, cracked, or infected if not properly cared for. This leads to snagging, peeling, and hangnails - ouch! Please do not despair; we have solutions to get your cuticles back into tip-top shape.

Healthy cuticles help prevent infections that lead to sore, red skin around your nails. They also stop moisture from escaping, keeping your nails strong. But in Kenya's sunny, dry climate, it is easy for cuticles to become dry and damaged. Luckily, Jada Kenya offers products to solve all your cuticle woes.

Here are the common cuticle problems in Kenya and the recommended Jada Kenya products to help repair and nourish your cuticles. 

Dry, Cracked Cuticles

Kenya's arid climate can do a number on your cuticles. Lack of moisture causes the skin around your nails to dry and crack. Once the skin breaks, it is easy for infections to set in.

To combat dryness, it is crucial to keep your cuticles hydrated. Jada Kenya's Cuticle Salve contains nourishing ingredients like beeswax, coconut oil, and vitamin E to provide deep conditioning for damaged cuticles. The thick balm creates a protective layer that locks in moisture.

For on-the-go softening, use Jada Kenya's On the Go Cuti-e Pen. This portable pen has hydrating oils to keep your cuticles conditioned throughout the day. 

Overgrown Cuticles

It is tempting to leave overgrown cuticles alone. However, unattended cuticles can lead to hangnails and infections. For neat, well-groomed cuticles, regular trimming is a must.

Invest in a high-quality nail file, like Jada Kenya's Nano Glass Nailfile, to gently shape your cuticles. The etched Czech glass surface shapes your cuticles without leaving micro-tears that can worsen cracking. The durable material means the file will last for years.

Weak, Peeling Nails

Once moisture escapes through damaged cuticles, it is only a matter of time before nails become weak and peel. To combat this, use Protein Nail Rescue before bed to reinforce nails. Hydrolyzed wheat protein and keratin in the formula strengthen and prevent peeling.

Apply Strengthening & Anti-Peeling Nail Serum daily to boost nail health. This quickly-absorbed serum contains nourishing oils and silica to repair peeling and cracks.

How to Care for Cuticles

With Kenya's climate, cuticles need special attention for optimal health. Incorporate these tips into your routine:

  • Soften cuticles daily with nourishing oil, like the On the Go Cuti-e Pen. Massage oil into cuticles and nails whenever they feel dry.
  • Trim overgrown cuticles. Use Jada's Nano Glass Nailfile for a safe, gentle trim.
  • Apply a thick cuticle cream like Cuticle Salve after trimming to condition newly exposed skin.
  • Use Protein Nail Rescue and Strengthening & Anti-Peeling Nail Serum to reinforce weak, peeling nails.


From dry and cracked to overgrown and ragged, unhealthy cuticles can plague your nails. But in Kenya's climate, keeping your cuticles in top condition with the right products is easy. Jada Kenya offers practical solutions for total cuticle care and repair. With soothing creams, strengthening serums, and conditioning oils, you can restore softness and regain healthy, neat cuticles. Contact us today for the best cuticle care products on the market.
