How to Make Homemade Cuticle Cream

Save

If your cuticles are dry and cracking, you may need to add a cuticle cream to your manicure routine. Cuticle cream is rubbed into cuticles like a lotion to make the skin around the nail bed soft and more attractive. You can make this sort of cream yourself at home, for a holistic solution to dry cuticles. Plus, making your own cuticle cream can save costs over purchasing pre-made cream.

Things You'll Need

  • Double boiler
  • 3 tbsp. parraffin
  • 1/2 cup mineral oil
  • 1 tbsp. fragrant oil
  • 1 tbsp. glycerin
  • Jar
  • Mix three tablespoons of paraffin, half a cup of mineral oil and one tablespoon of fragrant oil together. These ingredients can be found at most craft stores or beauty shops. Use fragrant oil in a scent you like, like lavender or coconut.

  • Pour the paraffin mixture into the top of a double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler, pour a cup of water in a pot and boil. Place a heat-safe boiler on top of the pot and pour the paraffin mixture in the bowl to heat.

  • Stir the mixture while it's heating until the mixture is well incorporated. Add one tablespoon of glycerin and stir well, then remove from the heat.

  • Let the cream cool then pour into a glass jar to store in your bathroom in between uses.
