Why Do Cuticles Dry Out?
Could it be the lack of moisture? The fact that your nails are always in use? What is behind dry cuticles, which can quickly make your nails look like they’re in need of rehabilitation? Dr. Graf says moisturizing cuticles is necessary, and if they’re in really bad shape, you can take additional steps to revive them.
“For the most part cuticles will stay in good shape if you keep them moisturized,” she says. “Continue to apply a lotion or cuticle oil/serum. If you need something more, try sleeping in gloves with lotion in them overnight, and make sure to give your nails a break from the polish here and there.”
