Practice will make you better, but you can also lubricate your cube with 100% pure silicone spray. Also, you can buy a DIY cube and you would be able to adjust the tension of the screws and springs inside, so you can make the cube turn to your preference. The silicone spray will make the cube turn a lot smoother. I would recommend doing so.

Some online cubing shoppes also sell pre-assembled cubes that have removable center caps for if you don't want to assemble your own (even though it's pretty easy to do).
