Re: solution for dry skin?

I find evening primrose oil good - i had dermatological probs like eczema, psoriasis and just chronic dry skin and it cleared it up. It contains the essential fatty acid GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid), that might be absent in your diet. Also, with age and with excess saturated fats and food additives GLA levels become depleted.
Silcock's base is also good for both washing your skin with and also using as a moisturiser. good luck!

If you are pregnant though, you must check with your doctor before you take ANY dietary supplements!!!

I've taken Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) for years as a supplement and feel if has helped my skin; HOWEVER, I've read that EPO is a big no no during pregnancy because it can bring on contractions. Do a ****** on this subject. Tons of info comes up.

cetaphil cream has worked excellent in this house, use it twice or more a day, specially after a bath or shower when your body is still damp and then bafore bedtime. I use this on myself and my daughter who has nasty dry skin on her legs and this has worked very well. good luck

Cetaphil (sp?) works the best for me. You can put it all over and it isn't heavy or greasy.
