How to Cure Dry Cuticles

23 Apr

I’ve always had a problem with my cuticles being too dry.  It didn’t matter how much hand lotion I would apply or the fact that I wear gloves every time I do the dishes,  somehow my cuticles were never hydrated.  Due to my cuticles being so dry I’ve had hang nails and loose peeled skin around my nails.

I was so embarrassed of showing my nails to anyone when they looked like that so I decided to take action!  I started searching different products that might help with this,  until I came across CND Solar Oil.  The reviews were outstanding!  So I decided to purchase a bottle and give it a try.

After all what’s the worst thing that could happen?  That it didn’t work and that I would end up spending $8.00?  At that price it wasn’t going to brake the bank.

Below you will find a picture of the CND Solar Oil bottle that I purchased.  It has three different oils (Sweet Almond, Jojoba and Rice).

Start with clean and dry hands.  Below is a picture before I applied the oil.

Apply a thin coat around your cuticles and massage.

The oil is infused with a nice almond scent.  Below you will find a picture of my hydrated cuticles.

After using this product for three weeks I have noticed that I no longer have dry cuticles, peeled skin around my nails and hang nails.  I absolutely love this product and I highly recommend it to anyone that has the same problems that I do.


– I use the product 2 to 3 times a day.  In the morning, after lunch and before bedtime.

– I always wear gloves when I am doing the dishes.  Dish washing soap strips away our natural oils from our hands.

– When washing your hands use a soap that has moisturizers.

– I always apply hand lotion after I apply the CND Solar Oil first, that way the bottle doesn’t get contaminated with the lotion.

If you decide to try this product and you liked it, or if you know of any other great products, stop by and leave me a comment.  I am always looking for great products to try.
