Summer Beauty Trick: Cuticle Care

06/14/2007 at 11:07 AM ET


Low-maintenance bare nails are in for summer (seen recently on the likes of Selma Blair), but that doesn’t mean you should ignore your digits completely. To keep your nails looking good, polished or not, we’re loving portable treatments like Honest to Goodness Cuticle Cream, $8, and Essie’s Cuticle Pen, $12. The tiny tin of Honest to Goodness Cuticle Cream is packed with ingredients like jojoba seed oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax to soften ragged edges. Essie’s mess-proof Cuticle Pen soothes and protects with super-hydrating apricot oil and shea butter. Just remember to use them every day to keep nails looking good — especially after a day at the pool or the beach. Tell us: What do you do to keep your cuticles in good shape?

I love this cuticle pen! It totally works and it smells good to boot! I ended up buying a bunch of them to give to stash at work, home, in my bag. You have to try it!

Olay used to sell a cuticle pen just like this but when they took it off the market, I was crushed! I’m so glad to see something like this back on the shelves!
