For successful hand beauty, it is essential to “tame” the cuticles. Cuticles are small dead skins that cover the base of the nail. Once pushed back, the nail appears larger and its lower edge clearer. This operation should be carried out using a wooden or plastic cuticle remover, but before that, it is preferable to soften them.

What you need before you start:
- A medium sized bowl
- A whisk for mixing
- One tablespoon
- An empty container
Ingredients and proportions:
- 2 tablespoons of Shea Butter
- 1 tablespoon of Coconut Vegetable Oil
- A few drops of Vitamin E
- A few drops of Lavender Essential Oil
Easy steps to follow:
Take two tablespoons of Shea Butter and place them in your bowl. Add the Coconut Vegetable Oil. Mix with the whisk and allow the Shea Butter to melt slightly for easier incorporation.
Once the mixture is homogeneous, add a few drops of Vitamin E and Lavender Essential Oil. Mix everything together.
Transfer your preparation to a resealable and airtight container.
Take a small amount and apply it to the nail. Gently massage the nail, insisting on the cuticles and the edges. Do this before you push back your cuticles and/or as soon as your skin around the nail dries out to prevent the appearance of small skins around the nail.
