Did you know the skin around your nails needs as much care as the rest of your body? So, don’t leave out your fingers when you’re slathering moisturiser on your hands. Also, it’s ideal to treat your dry cuticles at least once a week or at the time of your regular manicure session. Dry cuticles come in the way of healthy nails, bringing your manicure game down drastically!

Applying cuticle oil and massaging your cuticles with it is one of the best ways to pamper your cuticles regularly. Just like your skin, cuticles too crack, peel and flake. At such times, cutting your cuticles means worsening the condition of your fingernails. Cuticle oil helps treat dry and damaged cuticles and leaves your nails and cuticles moisturised and nourished, restoring them back to health.

However, if you don’t have a cuticle oil or don’t feel like investing in one, then you’ll be pleased to know that one staple from your vanity kit can also help treat damaged cuticles. Any guesses?
