Cuticles are to be cared for even in summer. Not only are the cuticles being over-exposed to more harsh chemicals but are going from wet to dry more often for most. We tend to wash and eat seasonal fruit and veggies more through out the summer months. Therefore, light oils, such as jojoba, sweet almond, coconut oil and even evoo may be applied often to dry and cracked cuticles. It is best to apply these oils right after water exposure to trap the moisture in the outer skin layer and these oils will also absorb into dry skin.
And, of course, damaged cuticles will look better after these oils are applied.
