Hi Natalie....

I'm very interested in this lady you mention...as natural products are what my skin likes at present...

What does she recommend for very dry flakey skin?

I'm putting oil and Vaseline on it at the moment as nothing else works...

I have met a mexican lady who also recommends cornflour. She adds it to the bath or applies it to her children on wet skin and then allows them to bath in it. She also said that you can buy johnsons baby powder in the US which is made from cornflour. So I guess you just use it as you would use talc or just add it to the bath.

I have also heard that you can add rooibush teabags to the bath and this also helps.

I have had mild eczema on my hands all my life and the doctors have blamed various things at different times. It went away completely during my teenage and early twenties but just recently came back.
Since it came back I have been trying out avoidances of different foods and chemicals and it appears that there are two key things which appear to be related.
If I have corn (cornflakes in cereal which I started eating again recently by coincidence) my eczema comes up within a couple of days and if I have any contact with soap liquid (washing up liquid) my hands bubble and get eczema within a few hours. Since cutting all corn (including corn syrup etc...) my reaction to the soap liquid appears to have lessened too!

is the acne just where your hair touches your face? I beivele it can be true due to irritation from some hair products causing inflammation of the pores. If not in the area your hair touches, i probably would not agree either.dr. m
