I live in a mild climate. So what can I do?What's the best way to keep your cuticles and the skin around your nails from cracking and bleeding?
This may sound gross, but if you use Vaseline, that should do the trick. I once had very cracked skin because of my job, and it was very painful. Vaseline really took care of it.What's the best way to keep your cuticles and the skin around your nails from cracking and bleeding?
Trim your cuticles! It's very easy to do, pick up a good nail kit and use the trimmer in it. Also, buy some cuticle oil, not lotion, but OIL. Rub it into the cuticle every night. Also, you might actually have a contact allergy. Wash your hands frequently with a hypoallergenic soap and pat dry gently.

Use a thicker moisterizer like shea butter, vitamin E. Maybe its your hand soap. Try a thicker formula.
