Cure Your Cuticles On The Go

Posted on: September 18, 2008

I had a nail care dilemma recently that I thought would be interesting to share. I was on vacation in a very remote place, a desert actually, working hard. The conditions were perfect for making my cuticles scream, raveled and dried out like autumn leaves! It was quite painful actually. Had I been in the comfort of my home, I would have simply reached for some cuticle ointment. How silly of me to not bring it along! Alas, I conjured up a solution. I almost never leave home without my trusty lip balm! So I chose one of my several sticks (as they are important to have in the desert), and I devoted it to my fingers. I just put a swipe on each cuticle and rubbed it in. They were so happy after that. My cuticles shrunk back to their normal selves, and I actually barely needed to apply any more chap stick for days. I did anyway as a prevention though. 

So there you have it! The next time you’re voluntarily stranded with dry cuticles, just put some lip balm on them and everything will be fine! I wonder what else lip balm could be used for? Any suggestions?
