Cream for flaky skin?

Postby becky1978 » Tue May 24, 2011 3:02 pm

Saffron has dry flaky skin on her feet and hand and a bit between her eyebrows. What can I put on it that's moisturising but nice and gentle?

Olive oil, that's all I use on mine when they are teeny.

Olive oil is good. Coconut oil is a better moisturiser though. You can buy it in local health food/whole food shops.

All 3 of my girls have been flakey for the first few weeks, I also used olive oil

we've used olive oil, bio oil or grapeseed oil - whatever we have in at the time
used bio oil once on DD's head and it totally cleared up her cradle cap - never needed it since!

Grapeseed oil was what was recommended for me when Kacie was teeny, it's supposed to be easier absorbed than Olive ;) but the best moisteriser I hear is breast milk and that's what I'm currently using on Mira's cradle cap just now ;)
