Very dry skin anyone?

I have always had a wee bit of a problem with dry skin and eczema but nothing major. I had surgery in August, after which my skin became incredibly dry in the hospital and I've never been able to get it back to normal since. I'm taking microgynon continuously, 3 packs then a weeks break and also a variety of painkillers. I'm trying to figure out if its the meds, the hormones or the condition itself. Any ideas?

Don't know what the cause is but Pure Jojoba oil is what you need, because it's molecules are so small, and it is the closest thing to our own body oil, sebum, it soaks right down through the skin. xx

Hi, I'd posted this question ages ago, but I just wanted to say thank you very much! I finally got round to finding a good one online and it was delivered about 3 days ago. Miraculous! I've added it to E45 to make it last a bit longer and the difference in my skin is incredible. Thank you so much! Xx

Excellent!! Glad it's helped. It's brilliant, natural, and has so many uses.

If you have brittle and peeling nails, rub it in at least four times a day at first, watch the nail soak it up, once they become rehydrated and more pliable (less prone to snap and break or peel), they won't soak it up so quickly and you don't have to do it so much, just once daily. xxx

Make sure you get a good quality one so that you get what you pay for. It's amazing for nails too, because of the small molecules it is one of very few things that can actually penetrate the many layers of Keratin your nails are made of and not just sit on top. Apply regularly and you will see a difference in a matter of days.
