Natural Home Remedies for Cuticle Repair By Robin McDonald

Hi everybody, welcome back to the kitchen. I'm your kitchen beautician Robin McDonald. Today's video is how to repair dry, flaky cuticles. Now with the cold weather upon us you might notice around your fingernails and your toenails are becoming dry, worn, flaky, irritated. This is due to cellular proliferation. The sloughing off of dead skin cells. The body's own protective mechanism against dehydration. However at the same time it interrupts the even exchange of moisture in the air to the skin. Now the best remedy for this is olive oil. You know I love my olive oil. So what you are going to do and I always tell everyone this, make sure when you buy olive oil you buy it in a dark bottle or opaque bottle or a can. Because light will degrade the efficacy of olive oil. You are going to take about a half a cup of olive oil. Put it in the microwave for maybe 30 seconds. Once it's reached a comfortable temperature you want to soak 10 minutes. So make sure you've got a good something going on television or on the phone with a good friend long distance. And just let your fingers soak. Then we are going to take a nice warm hot towel and wrap the hands in a nice hot towel. Once the towel becomes room temp take it off. It's done its work, it's over. So you want to massage the olive oil into the fingertips as best you can pushing back the cuticle with the end of your thumb. You never want to use the nail. Never it's always just the back of the thumb, it will rub right down. Now what I like to do also is add a little bit of citrus to the olive oil. Because citrus has natural antibacterial properties. You can use an orange or a lemon or a little bit of both like I'm doing. Also adds for a little bit of aromatherapy. Now this is such an inexpensive great way to nurture and repair irritated, dry flaky skin. If you have a bunch of girls over maybe you are doing a manicure party or whatever this is brilliant for that. Make sure everybody has their own bowl. And just pop it in the microwave as I said 30 seconds. Soak those nails for 10 minutes and do a nice massage maybe on each other. Thanks for joining me in the kitchen again. I'm your kitchen beautician Robin McDonald. Please visit me at and have a great day.
