Thank you for allowing me to ask this question, I am desperate.
EVERY winter my chin area gets EXTREMELY dry, flaky, taut, and itchy. Since I was born I've had eczema, but not on my face. I don't know if this is a form of eczema, but I've tried prescription strength medicines like Elidel, I've tried homemade items with ingredients like Shea butter, but nothing seems to work. to make matters worse, I have light to medium brown skin (burnt sienna in the Crayola box) and now because of this skin condition, it is the only part of my face that is darker so it looks like I have a beard.
I was wondering if you could suggest some type of homemade/holistic remedy that I could use that might help the dryness and ANY other suggestions that you might have would be phenomenal.
Thanks so much.
I get the feeling by reading your letter that you also love sweets/sugar. Did you know that some studies show that sugar will age us rapidly. It has absolutely no nuturition and the more you eat the more your body will crave. This includes white flour and white sugar and even too much fruit. Chocoloate is a big no-no for you! And you know you love it. So first
try using Agave Nectar, it's from a cactus and is a natural sweetner with half the calories of processed white sugar...then slowly ween yourself off of sweets altogether. You will see a dramatic difference in your skin and the way you feel. Also, here is is a link to my video
on making a natural facial with fruit....it's easy and is really good for your face. Try it, and keep me posted. http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?title=366514670
