Pro Tips: How to deal with Dry, Cracked Cuticles
Last week for Pro Tips, I asked you how you deal with the dry, flaky red skin that breakouts can leave you with. Here are some of your answers-
I’m definitely planning on trying out that product MandyB mentioned, that sounds like a miracle product!
I mentioned in my Fifteen Weird Facts Video that one of my bad habits is picking at the skin around my nails (mainly thumbs) and ending up with dry, red skin that is seriously not appealing to look at. I definitely don’t use hand creams enough, and that results in the skin getting dry and cracking, and then I mess with it and it just really makes a bigger mess that I wanted to deal with.
What’s your go-to product for smooth, soft cuticles?
Trind Cuticle Balsam has been my absolute must have favorite solution for this for a year or two now. I have tried a lot of cuticle oils and the like, but I really hate how they leave my skin feeling, well, oily for quite some time and just don’t seem to sink into the skin fast enough for my liking. This stuff is nice and thin, doesn’t have that oily feel to it, and is completely absorbed into my skin within seconds. If I use this consistently for a couple of days, it completely fixes my red, gross looking cuticles to 100%. The downside is the price (around $20, ouch) but really for me, it’s worth it because I haven’t found anything else that works as quickly and doesn’t feel like I just dipped my hands in olive oil.
