Nails and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

I started to train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu back in March 2015 at Roger Gracie Academy in London. I am loving it and there is no turning back! Taking up the sport meant I was to trade off beautiful long nails for dry and peeling skin. Grabbing GIs definitely roughen up the skin. I don’t see that being a problem for a man. For a woman, that could be putting off. However I do not think that because I train in BJJ that I have to trade my femininity. The problem is time.

  • When will I time to that with a demanding job and a family?
  • What could I use that would be quick and efficient?

Today I went to Body Shop and stumble upon their almond nail and cuticle oil. It is a pen with a brush dispensing the oil with a tool on the cap to push the cuticule. I thought that was worth a try. I tried it as soon as I got back home. My cuticules were very hard so it needed more than the pen tool to push them back but once I did, I can see how this product will be easy and quick to use to maintain soft cuticules.

I’m sold!
