Dry Winter Skin

Coconut oil has become my best friend.  There are a myriad of uses and benefits from this tropical item, one of which is helping to combat dry skin both from inside and out.  Eating a few teaspoons throughout the day can aid in creating a healthy-oil base skin layer and applying a dab to already cracked and dry skin can soothe and nourish.

Supplements that support healthy skin are fat-soluble vitamins A, C, E, and K (try taking with them that teaspoon of coconut oil to boost absorption), alpha-lipoic acid, and a B-complex.  Consult either myself or your personal physician for optimal dosages and possible interactions.
