It’s a sad day when a newly manicured nail gets chipped. But it’s practically heartbreaking when, one by one, all of your nails break, leaving ugly little stumps where gloriously glossy, gorgeously squared tips used to exist. Thanks a lot, Winter.

Don’t let the ravages of winter wreak havoc on your nails! Keep your fingertips in tip-top shape with these three solutions to common nail problems:
Problem: Dry, ragged cuticles and nails
Solution: Moisture! The dry winter air can really do a number on your nails and cuticles, leaving them frayed and dehydrated. Be sure to keep them trimmed and moisturized – try Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme for a refreshing and soothing way to protect nails and cuticles from the perils of winter.
Problem: Splits and breaks
Solution: Nourishment! Along with moisture, nourishment is vital to the health and strength of nails. Helpful nutrients include biotin, a member of the B-vitamin family, as well as MSM and hyaluronic acid. If you’re not getting enough of these nutrients from food, consider supplementing your diet with a hair, skin and nails formula.
Solution: Manicure! (Like you needed an excuse?) If your nails are looking “blah,” it may be time for a cut and color. Want the salon look on a shoestring budget? Do it yourself! Grab a manicure kit and a bottle of your favorite natural nail polish today.
