My cuticles always crack and bleed during the winter. How can I keep them hydrated?
Make it a habit to apply hand lotion after washing, says Michelle Pierno, a nail-care expert from Red by Kiss: "This will help keep skin soft and cuticles from fraying." If your cuticles are feeling rough, take a moment to rub some baby oil or cuticle oil, like Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil, $7, beauty.com, into your nail beds. Bonus: Cuticle oil also works wonders post-manicure. It prevents smudges while your nail polish dries, Pierno explains.
