How to Stop Your Cuticle Skin from Peeling

By on April 8, 2017

Dry, peeling cuticles can be quite painful and look unsightly. Luckily, this is one problem you can solve without too much time or effort – you just need to be prepared to give your hands a little TLC.

{PART-1} : Moisturizing Your Cuticles

  • 1) 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.
