Dry Skin

10 posts in this topic

Hi everyone...

 

You know how we just LOVE dry skin...NOT, well anyway, I've found something that's actually working for me, so thought I'd share...ready?? Wait for it....wait for it....SAFFLOWER OIL. Yep, right off the grocery aisle. No smell, absorbs quickly, doesn't make me greasy like I thought it would.

 

My norm is no matter what I use, by the end of the day my legs look like elephant skin. After 4 days of using the safflower oil, when I wake up the next day, I look at my legs and think..."Hmmm do I need to even use the oil today"?

 

Anyway, for whatever it's worth, thought I'd share.


Warm and gentle hugs,

Hi Sweet,

 

That's very interesting. I'll have to try that!

 

I use olive oil occasionally but it never dawned on me to try something cheaper. Oh duh!

Yes, and the smell is the reason that I only use olive oil occasionally, when I'm not going to be out in public. Luckily I already have some safflower oil, since it will probably be flying off the grocery store shelves after this! :D

Hi Sweet,

 

I've never actually heard of it, but it sounds very useful (and cheaply priced with any luck!! ;) )

 

Facial treatment as well?.....My wrinkles need all the help they can get, so I shall have to try it!!

 

Kind regards,

Hi Sweet,

 

We make a skin defoliating scrub with equal parts olive oil and salt, and a bit of extracts (just for the smell). It would probably be a lot cheaper with your safflower oil plus not have that special "Eau de Olives" fragrance.

I have been mixing sugar with my body wash.  The salt and oil is probably better. Will have to try it, thanks.

My salon uses honey and sea salt for the scrub they use for pedicures. I no longer get pedicures but it makes a nice exfoliant.

 

Coconut oil is supposed to be excellent for everything from skin to hair. I tried it when my skin was so hard and itchy but it didn't work for me to stop the itching. Also, my bathroom tends to be a cooler room and the oil would solidify. I am going to try it again, though. The people I know who use it on their hair have beautiful hair.

 

Years ago I used olive oil and vinegar, advice from a yoga instructor. I smelled like a salad!
