Not only does cuticle picking make your hands unsightly, but it exposes that area to bacteria which could result in an infection. Being a doctor, I'm forced to reveal my hands all day long so having bad cuticles is not an option!
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!
Dry cuticles can be a huge trigger. Apply cuticle oil each night before bed and wake it with beautiful glowing hands. You can even try coconut or jojoba oil.
Add Some Color
For me, if my nails are painted then I'm less likely to ruin the gorgeous paint job. Bonus: there's a lot of great non-toxic nail polish lines out there!
Get A Hobby
Years ago, I learned how to crochet when in boarding school and I always go back to this do de-stress. What do you like to do?
