I have been using all the carrier oils I can find on my legs that are for mature skin. They don't absorb, and my legs are dry and itchy no matter what I use. I tried exfoliating and nothing works. Do I need to put something in the oils to get them to absorb?
A couple of things come to mind that might help you.
First, I suggest you apply lotion
to damp skin right after you get out of the shower (pat most of the water off but don't really rub your legs dry) and then over top of the lotion apply a body butter
or body oil
Dry skin can be caused by a lack of Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids in the diet. I had a problem with dry, flaky eczema until I started taking a really good supplement called the Lifelong Vitality Pack. It has a fabulous blend of EFAs, healthy algae and essential oils in it. I love it! Contact me
if you'd like to learn more about it :)
I hope that helps - good luck!
