If you’ve been searching high and low for an all-natural way to keep your cuticles looking fresh, Mandy Moore has you covered: The star recently opened up about the products she uses on the daily, and one of her go-tos for staying moisturized is a natural-beauty MVP: coconut oil.

“I’m a big fan of coconut oil because it’s multipurpose. It’s the first thing I slather on my entire body when I get out of the shower,” she said in her New Beauty cover story. “I carry around a tiny jar of it in my purse and I’ll put in on my cuticles or use it as lip balm. You can find it pretty much anywhere, and I think of it like a universal salve.”

Since it’s rich in vitamins, minerals, and saturated fats—as well as an anti-fungal—it was almost made to take care of cuticles in need of a little TLC. Plus, according to cosmetic chemist Ni’Kita Wilson, it’s also a simple way to make your nails stronger. “The emollient nature of the coconut oil keeps the cuticles soft,” she said. “It doesn’t help nails grow, but it can definitely keep your nails from becoming brittle.”

To try Moore’s trick at home, just liquify your coconut oil by putting the container under running hot water, then apply it to your cuticles and nails. And, you know, the rest of your body—because #coconutoil. It’s as easy as that.
