You can wear gloves when cleaning or doing the dishes. I also like to use Sephora cuticle oil. I believe Rite Aid has a version of it too, for cheaper. It is like a small pen, and I put it in my purse and use it several times a day to moisturize around the cuticle and nail area.
Also, a multi-vitamin would help, and make sure you are getting enough water and protein in your diet.
I also love using Burt's Bees Res Q ointment for my cuticles. It is good stuff!
You may also wish to discuss the issue with your doctor, as the condition of your nails could indicate an underlying medical condition. You can tell him or her that you think it is due to having your hands in water. Let them rule out any medical causes.
Try harder--in everything that you do!
If the mind mends, the body will follow.
