DIY Cuticle cream


Using a cuticle cream is an important part of caring for your cuticles because you don't want dry and cracked cuticles (which causes hangnails). Damaged cuticles also allow for bacteria and fungus to enter into your nail bed (yuck!). This DIY cuticle cream will nourish your brittle nails and leave your cuticles soft! Use this cream whenever you feel like your nails need moisturizing, I like to use mine right after a shower and before bed.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 TBSP Beeswax
  • 1 TBSP Shea Butter
  • 1 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Raw Honey
  • 1/2 tsp Vegetable Glycerine
Steps:
  1. Melt & combine beeswax, oil and shea butter.
  2. In a separate bowl melt & combine raw honey with vegetable glycerine.
  3. Let both mixtures come to room temperature.
  4. Whisk them together until mixture is a creamy consistency.
  5. Pour into container and let harden overnight.
