Add avocados to her diet. Done deal.
Please don't hesitate to ask for recipes.
I was just talking to friend about Avocados and the benefits of good fats. I often supplement with vitamin e with mixed tocophenols and
vitamin c just for my dry skin. I also take fish oil supplements with EPA and DHA for my brain and skin.
Sensitive skin with dry skin a tricky problem and you want simple ingredients with no parables, as parabens are ultimately drying... this when it
comes to creams and serums.
I think there are some Cetaphil products that don't have parabens.
For the bare basics in skin care, a good carrier oil with the proper dilution of German chamomile essential oil. I think two percent of German
chamomile to the rest carrier oil, like Argon oil,
Here is link to dilutions chart, this site will also tell you the right and safe percentages to use throughout their site,
For brittle hair and more shedding than is good, I'm putting together this very day a mixture of organic olive oil, shea nut oil, white camillia oil
and macadamia nut oil. I'm going to use mostly the olive oil and mix in smaller amounts of the others. The first oils for hair I mentioned are carrier
oils and I'm going to add essential oils to stimulate growth and deal with dry itchy scalp. In the proper dilutions the essential oils I will use are,
sweet basil, rosemary verbenon, bay laurel, tea tree and palmarosa with a little vetiver.
I have gone through the site I posted above and read about theses oils over and over, if you or your GF are interested please do your research about
proper dilutions and what would work best for her.
The site below tons of info and also a place to purchase, here is the front page of their site,
Hope you and GF find good solutions! I battle dry skin too and if I think of anything else will try to help.
