Here is a wonderful kitchen beauty fix that I have been using lately to keep the cuticles in great shape as it softens them and the surrounding skin. This homemade soak smooths, disinfects, and nourishes with apple cider vinegar, olive oil, pineapple juice, and an egg yolk.
Just remember, you need to push your cuticles back at least once a week. Otherwise, you might risk suffocating nail growth. If you have been wondering why your nails refuse to grow, neglected cuticles could be the reason.
Winter Cuticle Smoother!
1 egg yolk
1-1/2 teaspoons of olive oil
½ teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of pineapple juice
Mix all the ingredients in a clean bowl.
Immerse your nails and plan to soak them in the mixture for about 15 minutes or longer is even better. (I like to treat my nails while I am watching some television instead of just clocking it to make the time fly by).
When you soaked long enough, wipe your nails because your cuticles will be softer now to push them back with an orange stick.
Do try this simple fix because it does help.
