Tips For Taking Care of Your Cuticle Beds

So you've become a Revel addict doing your nails every two weeks; or maybe you change your nail color way too often and you’ve noticed your skin is cracking or dry, especially around your cuticles. My name is Sami and I'm not only part of the Social Team here at Revel Nail, but I am also an esthetician. Today I'm giving you my top 3 remedies for dry skin around your cuticles!

First and foremost, I am sure you’ve guessed it...yup, that’s right...staying hydrated! Drinking water does wonders for your skin! Drinking enough water each day helps by improving the elasticity within your skin. This means that you are less likely to have any cracking, dry patches or itchiness to your skin. It also helps increase the blood flow within your body, clearing out all of those extra toxins!

Another great tip for improving your skin around your cuticles is finding a great cuticle oil! What’s great about Revel Nail is that we have our very own cuticle oil that not only smells amazing, but is also hydrating and moisturizing. Wildflower Cuticle Oil is my favorite cuticle oil scent! Placing your Revel Nail Cuticle Oil around your nail beds daily helps stimulate nail growth, hydration and improves the appearance of your gorgeous manicure.

Those of you that do deep conditioning masks to your hair, did you know that you should also do something similar to your nail beds (especially if you always have your nails done)? A great way to sooth your cuticle lines is to soak them in warm soapy water for ten minutes once a week or biweekly. This allows any dirt or debris to exit the skin around and underneath your nails. Once you're done soaking, add your favorite hydrating moisturizer and also your Wildflower Cuticle Oil to top it off!  Make sure you are using a moisturizer that has phospholipids or lactic acid as this helps prevent your skin from cracking!
