There is a product that I have been using for years called Solar oil. Basically it is a almond-scented cuticle oil that can keep your cuticles moist and also make you look like you just stepped out of a salon from a manicure! Buy two, one for home and one for work. If you have a big meeting, just gloss some on and go!
It is $11.00 for a small bottle but lasts a long time! They also carry it in a solid form in case you are afraid of a mess.
