Do You Have Dry Skin?
Dry, cracked skin is commonly caused by three factors:
– Lack of calcium
– A deficiency of polyunsaturated fats like flax oil. Flax oil or the omega-3 and the omega-6 fats take calcium to the skin.
– The amount of chlorine in the water during colder months.
When you have dry, irritating skin, a major improvement will occur when you increase your omega oils. I recommend taking one tablespoon of high lignan flax oil daily. If you skin continues in its cracked state, add an additional teaspoon. You can use Blackcurrant Seed Oil if you have noticed the flax is not enough. Blackcurrant Seed is a complete blend of the basic omega families.
