As Winter Approaches, The Need For Effective Skincare is Paramount

In colder temperatures, our skin is more sensitive to irritation and needs extra moisture. Yet, as we focus on winter-proofing our skincare regime, nail care is often the last thing on our minds! Exposure to cold temperatures, harsh chemicals, chlorine, sun, and salt water can lead to nails becoming brittle and dry, with cracked, damaged cuticles. And if you’re a nail biter, that can lead to an additional level of cuticle damage.

Winter-Proofing Your Nails – How To Get Started

Cuticle care can come in many different forms, but we would suggest a combination of oils, creams, and balms, to help deeply moisturize your nails and the surrounding skin, restoring their natural glow.

We recommend the application of these products nightly (you can even apply after your daily lavender bath), for optimal results.

Apply Cuticle Oil

First, soften your cuticles in warm water for 5-10 minutes. Select your chosen cuticle oil (we would recommend L’OCCITANE’s Shea Nail & Cuticle Nourishing Oil) and apply liberally.

Gently press on the tube and apply to cuticles using the brush applicator, massaging in the oil with your hands.
