For the purpose of this hack, I left my hands to get all lizard-like for 7 days. This means that I didn’t apply any cream or cuticle oil to my hands for a whole week. I want to show the truly amazing effects of the coconut oil on my cuticles.
I kept about my daily routine of hand sanitizing, washing the dishes (without gloves because mine broke and I haven’t gotten around to buying a new pair), and the obvious hand washing during the day.
The first picture is what my cuticles looked liked after a week of neglect.
The second picture is roughly an hour after I applied the coconut oil to my cuticles.
I keep a small amount of coconut oil in my bedside drawer, and every night I apply a small amount to my cuticles. It keeps them feeling absolutely amazing.
