    Make a homemade cuticle cream. If you have the time, you can make a really effective cuticle cream at home using some hand cream and oils. Here’s how:

    • In the microwave, warm up a bowl of 1/3 cup hand cream, a few glugs of olive oil (or grape seed oil, if you have it), and 3-4 drops of lavender oil (found in the health food store) to a temperature that is warm but not too hot to touch.
    • Apply a generous amount to each fingernail and gently massage into the nail, cuticle and surrounding skin, spending a minute or two on each. The cream is extremely good for your hands (and feet!) and will keep your cuticles soft.
    • You can keep and re-warm this homemade cream for up to 3 days in your fridge if you store it in a dark glass bottle.
