Great looking nails begin with well-groomed cuticles. Here's how to keep your nails looking perfect:
* Mix two tablespoons corn meal with one tablespoon olive oil and a few drops water. Massage gently into cuticles and nails. Rinse with warm water.
*Apply a cuticle conditioner nightly before bed. Alpha Hydroxy Acid works beautifully. You can buy a special "cuticle formula" at the drug store. But it's more economical and just as effective to massage a bit of lemon juice into the cuticles. Be sure to apply moisturizer to prevent drying.
* Rub a little olive oil onto nails during the day for instantly "manicured" nails. The oil not only smoothes cuticles, it protects them, as well!
Done daily, these treatments will help keep your cuticles looking soft and smooth.
