If washing and sanitizing your hands is causing irritated skin and painful hangnails, it's more than likely your at-home manicure is looking a little worse for the wear. That's why you likely keep a half-used tube of hand cream in your bedside table, but if your nails are still dry, it's time to bring in reinforcements.
Instead of slathering on lotion, there's a more concentrated treatment to save you from dry patches and brittle nails. All you need is a cuticle oil that absorbs easily, smells nice, and treats your nails — plus the skin surrounding them — with a little extra TLC. We've rounded up the best reparative cuticle oils, all of which will soothe parched skin and ensure a strong manicure clear through summer. Grab your favorite, ahead.
