Quick Cuticle Care
Nails look their best when they're hangnail-free, but in winter cuticles take an extra beating. To keep this pesky, painful problem at bay, try one of the take-along cuticle pens that dispense deeply moisturizing ingredients through a soft brush at the tip. Their slim size means that you can stash them in your purse, and the no-mess gel means never having to worry about spills.Two to Try
