I will get to goal .....

I suffer with dry skin on CD too. Plenty of moisturiser ;) and some baby oil in the bath works a treat :D

My skin is v dry and my legs were like that before i started CD. However, they're fine now after gallons of water :rolleyes:

Anyway I used to use body oil sprays (Avon's are great) or The Sanctuary from Boots as a treat. Spray all over after bath/shower and they're non-greasy & smell great
I have noticed that my lips are always very dry and I'm constantly reaching for Vaseline
How bizarre - before CD I suffered really badly with eczema and since starting this diet, my skin has never looked so good!! I can personally recommend the vaseline intensive care (white bottle) lotion, its FAB!

Actually, now that I think about it, I guess it just reinforces the thoughts that eczema can be related to diet as much as stress (my stress levels certainly haven't changed while doing this!)
My hands are suffering the most from going to the loo MUCH more often and washing hands each time.

Its funny but when I was drinking 4ltrs of water my skin was really really dry! You would think the water would hydrate your skin but now I'm sticking to the minimum to about 3ltr max and it's much better, thats only because I'm just about there though and I'm up the plans so not recommending you drop the amount of water you're having :)

Strange though aint it
