13. Use a Natural Remover
Use a nail-polish remover without acetone. Your corner pharmacy will carry both kinds, often of the same brand in different formulations. Read the label carefully. It may take a little longer to get the polish off with the non-acetone remover, but your cuticles are worth the wait.

14. Resist Trimming
As easy as it seems, as much as you think you want to: never have your cuticles removed. This minor (self) surgery can easily lead to infection and worse problems, so it’s best to avoid it.
