Dry chapped skin around nails?
Dry chapped skin around your nails? Let's fix them
Before and After the image
When the weather gets colder I seem to get really dry chapped skin around my nail area. I don't bite my nails at all so it doesn't make any sense why I have them, however, am guessing the body is not so hydrating and weather doesn't help plus lots of washing up can make the skin dry. Ok so iv done a little research and am going to try this method.
1. Soak fingers in warm water
In a good size bowl dip your hands and fingers in for 5mins to soften the your skin. Warm water always helps.
2. Dab dry
Using your towel dry your hands and fingers without being harsh. Just dab motions.
3. Use a Cuticle pusher.
Now using a cuticle pusher, push back your cuticles. The flat end is used to push back the cuticles and the pointy bit is to help remove any dirt or build up around the nails.
4. Cut extra skin
Now using a manicure nipper or manicure scissors trim away extra skin that's sticking out. It's sort so easy to.do, however, do not cut around your actual nails. Just the loose skin that sticks out.
With a good cream, gel or moisturiser now rub into nails area and surrounding in circular motions.
Now that's a simple method that anyone can do from home and help maintain any dry skin around our nails. Plus your cleaning and looking after your nails too. I would apply a hand scrub to help exfoliate hands at the same time and moisturise to do both hands and nails. I used Bio Oil gel around my nails and it worked like magic. Love it!
