How to Prevent and Get Rid of Hangnails, According to an Expert

Hangnails are a misnomer, unless you consider that they hurt as bad as a nail being driven into your fingers. They’re tiny tears in the skin, nestled right up against the nail base. Hangnails are tedious to remove—but easy to procure, with one simple misstep during clipping, or by a lack of moisture—they hurt for days, and when one occurs, it seems like another three or four sprout up on neighboring phalanges.

The Only 58 Grooming Tips You’ll Ever Need

Each time you get a hangnail, you might ask a few questions: How can you prevent a hangnail from happening? How can you remove hangnails safely and painlessly? And how can you heal a hangnail quickly? We asked these same questions to Dr. Avnee Shah, M.D. and a board-certified dermatologist. Here’s the advice she gave us. Spread the good word, and make hangnails a thing of your past.



What causes hangnails?

There are numerous habits and environmental culprits behind hangnails, all of which Shah says “weaken the skin’s integrity in general, allowing hangnails to occur.” She notes that dry, arid climates are one such cause—winter being prime time. Anything that dries out the skin easily will similarly lead to agony, like hard water, harsh chemicals, and soaps. (Always use a moisturizing soap to be safe.)

Men’s Grooming Tips: How to Take Care of Your Nails

When cutting your own nails, be cautious not to cut the cuticles too closely, or to nick the skin at the sides of the nails. If you’re prone to biting or picking at your nails, then you’re a prime candidate for hangnails. As a side note, Shah tells her nail-biting patients to invest in a fidget spinner: “People tend to pick and bite their nails when feeling anxious, so instead of working out the anxiety on yourself, releasing that energy through a fidget spinner can help from causing more tears.”

What is the wrong way to get rid of hangnails?

Quite simply, “don’t rip, tear or bite them off,” Shah says. “Sometimes this can lead to a condition where there is inflammation and possibly infection of the cuticle called paronychia.” (If you thought a hangnail hurt enough, paronychia will prove you wrong.) “If this happens, see a board-certified dermatologist,” Shah says.

What’s the best way to get rid of a hangnail by yourself?

First, you need to wash the area, and disinfect any device that you’re about to use (rubbing alcohol or hand soap will suffice). Use clean nail clippers or manicure scissors to cut the hangnail at the base, Shah says. After that, wash the area again, and chase it with a nourishing hand cream or healing ointment to moisturize the area.

How do you prevent hangnails in the first place?

The key here is to promote moisture. “Moisturize your hands daily,” Shah says. (Use that hand cream or balm on a regular basis, especially in dryer climates and seasons.) Second, Shah says to not cut back your cuticles. Sure, they’re not always the best-looking feature, but they do protect the base of the nail, and removing them can invite infection in addition to hangnails. But, if you must clip them, just try not to cut them too short, she says. Finally, Shah says to “exercise caution when clipping your nails. Pay attention to this seemingly easy task. It’s too easy to catch your skin by mistake.” Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Hand Cream and Aquaphor’s Healing Ointment are both great emollients to moisturize the areas and help prevent drying out of the skin.

The Best Products to Take Care of Hangnails

We like Tweezerman’s Cuticle / Manicure Scissors, as well as its Fingernail Clipper. As for hand creams, try Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, or Doctor Rogers RESTORE Healing Balm. Dr. Shah’s favorite hand cream is Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, and she recommends Aquaphor’s Healing Ointment to help the skin recover from cuts and excessive dryness, and to shield any cuts from infection.

Foo Fighters Rock All Over Westboro Baptist Church In Expert Protest Troll

You just got played, Westboro Baptist Church.

The notorious hate group, known for picketing funerals and public events for attention, protested an old foe, the Foo Fighters, before the band’s concert in Kansas City Friday, the Kansas City Star reported.

But the Foo Fighters fought back. Led by frontman Dave Grohl, they trolled the demonstrators by blaring Rick Astley’s 1987 hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” from a pickup as they rode in the back. Band members also held up signs that read “You got Rick roll’d” and “Keep it clean.”

Look at the fun they’re having:

What a night with the Foo Fighters here at Sprint Center.

Posted by Sprint Center on Friday, August 21, 2015

Rickrolling,” originally a bait-and-switch prank in which people are lured into clicking Internet links of interest that instead open to Rick Astley’s song, has been around for several years but is used to maximum effect here.

The Foo Fighters also took on Westboro protesters in Kansas City in 2011, singing a gay love song to counter the group’s anti-gay views.

Westboro founder Fred Phelps had written: “[The Foo Fighters] have a platform and should be using it to encourage obedience to God; instead they teach every person who will listen all things contrary to him: fornication, adultery, idolatry, fags.”

We say the Foo Fighters just won this round as well.

Books: “How’m I Doin’?” Two Years In, Vatican Expert Talks Pope Francis, Women In The Church & What’s Next


By John L. Allen Jr.
($ 27; Time)

If you’ve paid any attention to news coverage of the Catholic Church at any point in the last 15 to 20 years, chances are you’ve seen or heard from John L. Allen Jr. Now on staff at The Boston Globe and a key contributor to their Catholic news website Crux, Allen has been covering the Vatican since he first headed to Rome in 1998. At the time, it was a backwater to most news outlets and almost no American media had a presence on the ground. So Allen had this beat almost to himself as far as US audiences were concerned.

After learning Italian and building up contacts, Allen found himself with an increasing worldwide audience thanks to the growth of the internet. In 2001, of course 9-11 made the “clash of civilizations” and Christianity and Islam central issues. Plus there were hot topics like the never-ending child molestation and cover-up scandals roiling country after country and finally the death of Pope John Paul II. The Vatican was hot again and Allen was here, there and everywhere, delivering solid journalism and working as a key analyst for outlets like CNN. Any other journalist helicoptering into the Vatican for a big event knew they could get a succinct quote and solid insight from Allen. (So, at times, could bishops and cardinals who wanted a little background on the latest news when they’d been out of the country. It never hurts to be a trusted source for your sources)

Allen has also written a string of increasingly confident books, including not one but two biographies of the man who would become Pope Benedict as well as a demystifying look at Opus Dei. Now with his latest work The Francis Miracle, Allen turns his eye on the pope with popularity ratings a movie star would envy as well as a Reagan-like ability to overcome any momentary stumbles in his off-the-cuff remarks simply because people like him. As Allen has put it, with Pope Benedict everyone felt the things they disliked about the Catholic Church were because of him. With Pope Francis, they feel the things they dislike about the Catholic Church are despite him.

Allen’s new book contains a biographical sketch of Francis and his life, mostly with an eye towards how those experiences might color the Pope’s worldview and the priorities he has for the Church. Then Allen looks at key issues facing the Church such as much-needed financial reform, the role of women, the child molestation scandals and the lack of accountability for those who covered it up for decades. It’s a snapshot of the Francis papacy, where it’s at today, how he is doing and what to look for in the future.

I talked with Allen in-depth, discussing his unlikely career path, the many controversial issues facing the Catholic Church, the personality of Francis versus Benedict and why non-Catholics need to be aware of the Pope and his priorities just as they would with any other major world leader. You can see the entire interview at BookFilter.com. Following are some key excerpts.


Allen talks about the first time he met the man who would become Pope Francis back in 2001 just days after 9-11. It was an almost accidental meeting because the late Cardinal Edward Egan had to back out of a previously arranged interview. (Egan died one day after our discussion took place.)


Allen talks about Pope Francis, how he broke new ground by working with and for women as a young man and why women are so far disappointed with his track record.


Allen talks about his unlikely career path that veered from religious studies to being the faculty adviser for a high school newspaper to hot rods and then — suddenly — the Vatican.

You can follow John L. Allen Jr. on Facebook and Twitter or at Crux and the Boston Globe. To see the full interview, head to BookFilter.com and watch the video embedded on the front page.

AARP’s Dating Expert Reveals The Differences Between Older Men And Women Who Date Online

More and more single people over 50 are turning to the Internet to find a later-in-life love connection, but there’s a clear gender divide in how they adjust to dating online, according to AARP dating expert Ken Solin.

Older men who look for mates online usually cast a much wider net than women, Solin told HuffPost Live’s Caitlyn Becker on Friday.

“Men tend to approach online dating like it’s a candy store and they’re a kid with a bag of dimes,” he said. “They just spin the dial, and you can tell … by the emails men send. ‘You’re cute, let’s talk’ — how many people did they send that to?”

On the other hand, women make more careful choices and are more likely to study a potential match’s profile before reaching out. Women also have a better understanding of how sex plays into a relationship, Solin said.

“It’s more difficult for men to understand that the best relationships — the hottest sexual relationships, passionate relationships — are also best friendships, and that’s critical,” he said. “We were raised to think that once you become friends with a woman, sex is over. Actually the opposite is true. Once you becomes friends with a woman you love, sex gets better.”
