Our fave cuticle oils to keep your nail beds hydrated

17 November, 2023 / words by IALH Editor

Alright Hun, let’s talk about a tiny miracle worker that often gets overlooked in the world of nail care – our good sis cuticle oil. If you’re not already on the cuticle oil bandwagon, it’s time to hop on for a ride that will leave your nails looking and feeling fabulous. Cuticle oil is basically like a tall glass of water for your nails. Just as your skin gets dry and flaky, so do your cuticles. Regularly applying cuticle oil helps to hydrate and nourish these delicate bits of skin, preventing them from getting all cracked and parched – because nobody want cuticles that look like crunchy nut cluster, Hun (word to Mel).

The use of cuticle oil also extends the life of your manicure as well as slows down new growth. Beyond the nail benefits, applying cuticle oil can be a mini self-care ritual. It’s a simple act of pampering yourself, taking a moment to show some love to the often-neglected heroes at the base of your nails. Here’s a list of our fave cutitle oils that are perfect for you to slip into your handbag and use on the go!
