I've added 1/4 of an avocado to salads and I noticed a difference to my skin.

I also use organic virgin coconut oil (unrefined) for cooking.

Vitamin D3 is my new favorite vitamin. I take 2,000 IU each day. Google... Vitamin D3 + dry skin

SO many great ideas!

But all of you must have expected me to chime in with my favorite... Don't forget Coconut Oil!!! It's great on food and in cooking, but also used externally right on the skin!

I hope you'll let us know how DH fares!

I'm just saying... Kelley

A good oil internally is a great way of nurishing the skin.
Another suggestion is his water intake. In the winter you tend to drink less because your not over heated and feeling thirsty. The cold air can take a lot of moisture out of the skin and make it dehydrated. You don't really know that you aren't dehydrated though - it's harder to tell. Is he still getting his 8 to 10 glasses of water a day?

Essential fatty acids three times a day along with the flax oil and a good probiotic each morning has worked for a lot of people I know with that same problem. Hope this is helpful. emoticon

When God leads you to a cliff you must trust him completly and let go; only one of two things will happen, he will catch you or teach you to fly.

Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes; that way when you criticize them you will be a mile away.

If you tell the truth you don't have to remember any thing.

Generally speaking you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.

Careful your actions, you may be the only book some one reads.

Good suggestion. Flaxseed oil is another good oil. Glad you posted it.

My grandsons both experience dry skin to the point of eczema with the accompanying itch, bumpy skin and misery. Flax seed oil, taken internally as capsules, has cured both of them. Might give it a try as well as the other suggestions already provided by our great team members.

Unless you know why he is getting the dry skin it can be hard to make suggestions. Four things you can do are:
1) increase fat intake with good fats like olive oil, safflower oil, sunflower seed oil,
2) Vitamin E oil both internally or topically often has good results
3)bee pollen often works well on men I think more so than women.
4)Here is a recipe recommended by Gayelord Hauser, a beauty and health writer.

Put 2 heaping tablespoons of dried peppermint leaves into a pint of water and bring to a boil.
Simmer 3 minutes and put through strainer.
Add 1 pint pure cider vinegar and then apply with cotton.
