Once And For All, Here's How To Stop A Hangnail From Getting Worse #SHEfindsSolutions

Just thought of a peeling cuticle or hangnail send shivers down my spine. Even though it looks small, it isn’t pretty and it definitely can cause pain. Ouch!

If you have a hangnail, the most important thing is to avoid peeling it off all together because that could ultimately lead to the area hurting way more or even a nasty infection. Instead of peeling it, the best thing to way to treat a hangnail is to soak your fingers in warm water. This will soften the area around the hangnail. Next, use nail scissors or a nail clipper to cut off the hangnail. Once you’ve done that, you can cover the area with Vaseline or Neosporin and a band-aid if you want to make sure it heels the right way.

And if you want to prevent hangnails, use cuticle oil religiously. Don’t have cuticle oil? Even just using lotion regularly on your hands will prevent nasty hangnails.

Be sure to check out how to remove foundations stains without a washing machine and how to instantly soften dry hair.
