No matter how hard we may try, our hands and nails really take a beating during winter. They are one of the few areas exposed to the effects of the cold, wind, heaters and air conditioning, which dries them out and can make them red and sensitive. If this sounds familiar, it’s time you invest in a good cuticle oil that moisturises, softens and nourishes the skin around the nail.
Apply as often as you wish (but especially at night before bed) and massage the oil into the skin for best results. Do this often enough, and you’ll find your cuticles looking fab all winter long.
Here, a few of the cuticle oils we’re loving at the moment:
SpaRitual Cuti-Cocktail Pen, R193
Milk Solutions Milk & Honey Cuticle Oil, R60
Nurture Cuticle Oil, R77
Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab
Essence Studio Nails Caring Nail Oil, R39.95
