I still get dry, chapped skin in spots.Rub flaxseed oil directly on the dry spots. Transdermal delivery of drugs is currently one of the hottest areas of clinical research. Omega 3 is one of Nature's most potent "drugs," so just massage it into those areas.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2700785First-generation transdermal delivery systems have continued their steady increase in clinical use for delivery of small, lipophilic, low-dose drugs. Second-generation delivery systems using chemical enhancers, non-cavitational ultrasound and iontophoresis have also resulted in clinical products; the ability of iontophoresis to control delivery rates in real time provides added functionality. Third-generation delivery systems target their effects to skin’s barrier layer of stratum corneum using microneedles, thermal ablation, microdermabrasion, electroporation and cavitational ultrasound. Microdermabrasion is something I know a little about in a DIY way. I buy 100 grit aluminum oxide crystals, mix it with shea butter cream or aloe cream and give myself a facial that would cost $50+ in a salon. (Keep the crystals mixture away from the tender skin around your eyes!)http://www.needcrystals.comSo...microdermabrade the dry area, then slap on some flaxseed oil. You'll be amazed how velvety soft your skin will be.If your lips get chapped, they need hydration, not lubrication. Put a steaming warm wet wash cloth to your lips until they become fully saturated with moisture; THEN seal the moisture in with a thick waxy substance like Chap Stick. I learned this when my son had chronic chapped lips from nervous licking.
