Regularly moisturize your cuticles.
Regularly moisturizing your cuticles is one of the most important steps in stopping your cuticles from peeling.
You should moisturize them at least twice a day – once in the morning and once at night.
Don’t forget that your cuticles are made out of skin (despite their thicker texture), and all skin needs to be moisturized in order to stay hydrated and prevent peeling and flaking.
During the day you can use a moisturizing hand lotion which soaks in quickly and doesn’t leave your hands feeling greasy.
At night, however, you should use a thicker cream or cuticle ointment for more intense hydration.
After you moisturize your hands and cuticles at night, it is a good idea to wear a pair of cotton or wool gloves to bed.
This prevents the cream or ointment from rubbing off on the bed sheets, while the extra heat will help your skin to really absorb the moisturizer.
You will wake up in the morning with really soft hands and cuticles!
