    • Do you work with a lot of water or paper?

      If so use a nail oil daily. Also using a nail strenghener would help. My favs are dabu and Qtica....

    • I use tons of hand cream.  if they‘re really dry-I’ll use the old-fashioned trick of slathering it on and the covering them w/ gloves for the night.

      Also-I love my hot wax dip.

    • I know this sounds nuts, but it works and I’ve been doing it for years.  Dab those cracks and splits with Super Glue, yes regular Brush on Super Glue, not the liquid bandage.  By the time it wears off the cracks are usually healed.  It stops the pain right away with a strong protective layer.  I got this idea from either Ladies Home Journal or Good Housekeeping in an article called Secrets Doctors Use On Their Own Families...or something along that line.

    • I’m in food manufacturing so I’m in a combination of soap/degreaser and bleach all day. I swear by Clarins hand cream. I put it on sometimes during the day but mostly at night. It helps heal my hands, keep them soft, counteract the effects of the bleach and my cuticles stay moist.

    • I had very bad nails from Chemo and I used to soak them in warm almond oil every night rubbing the oil in so increasing circulation - then I slathered my hands in nail/ hand cream and slept with cotton gloves on - my nails are now very hard - I still do this once a week ...

    • The other ideas sound very good for moisturizing, but your skin and nails also need nutrients. I have learned through personal experience that my skin and nails are much better when I eat enough protein. I used to think that I was not getting enough calcium when my nails broke and cracked, but by improving my diet and making a conscious effort to get enough protein, I have noticed that my nails don’t do that anymore. And my skin looks a lot better, too!
