You should eat more fruits especially in winter. If you like juices its also good. Actually avocado has its oil which make you skin soft.

I started Paleo a week ago, and after about 4-5 days of the diet, I have noticed some strange things in my mouth--dry/chapped lips (never a problem pre-paleo, so not winter-related), sore/raw roof of mouth, and back of tongue is sore and it... (more)

Castor oil is a good treatment for dry and chapped lips. 1. Simply apply castor oil to your lips several times a day. 2. You can also make a soothing treatment using one teaspoon of castor oil, one teaspoon of glycerin and a few drops of fresh... (more)

So many people report amazing cosmetic side effects of eating the Paleo way - can I eat to purposely create a specific desired side effect? I have always had very pale lips, and my malabsorption problems aren't helping. I would LOVE to have... (more)

work on fixing you malabsorption, take some pancreatin digestive enzymes, a good probiotic, a multivitamin and fish oil. clean up/simplify your diet. strive for fatty cuts of animals meats, eggs, butter tons of greens and low carb/starch veggies... (more)

Well have any of you tried it for your skin? I have never in my life found something that was so amazing at keeping my face/skin/lips moisturized. If any of you don't know what lanolin is, it is basically sheep sebum lol. For those of you who have... (more)

Amen. I started with the smelly version (oops) and I still slather it on happily and just avoid lonely men in small farming communities. It works so, so much better than any salve or heavy lotion I've ever tried. Now I've got some of the... (more)

Hello folks. First time posting here. Nothing too severe, but I can't seem to be able to defeat these health problems. For quite a while now, I have been suffering from dry mouth and lips. Sometimes my lips peel pretty bad, and it gets all... (more)

Just to clarify, so Fitday says you are getting enough calcium? I ask because when I first started eating paleo, I also got dehydrated (and had gum/dental problems). Like you, I suspected potassium & vit c, but it turned out to be a calcium... (more)

Ruby, do you use commercial lip balms, salves or lipsticks? The mineral oil, petroleum jelly, etc, does not actually help the skin. It just makes a slick film on top of the skin. Dr. Richard Bernstein addresses this in his book, [The Diabetes... (more)

Hello - I've been Paleo 2 months now. Everything is great but I had a bout of itchy skin, which I think was due to too many probiotics. I cut back on them and now I can't seem to get rid of my chapped lips. I'm beginning to think this is from my... (more)

Nah, no way would salad do that. You'd have to be eating piles of liver or taking a supplement with retinol.

Some background: I'm coming up on almost 5 months of hardcore paleo. I follow paleo to the Robb Wolf letter, the only "cheats" I've done is eaten rice 3 times (in 5 months) and I probably eat more fruit than I should. My problem: I'm freezing... (more)

I'm three weeks paleo as of today and seeing lots of improvements like fitting into a too tight skirt and not wheezing on an awful humid day like today. I even think my hair is getting thicker! But the weirdest thing is my lips look fuller and are... (more)

I like butter oil because it keeps my lips from being dry and chapped. However, I am extremely sensitive to dairy products and get acne from butter oil. So, is there a substitute for butter oil?

For years I have always traveled with a chapstick in my pocket so that I may apply it to my lips several times each day in order to keep them moist and comfortable. However, the other day it occurred to me that it was a little odd that my lips... (more)

I have read that it is possible to become addicted to petroleum based lip balms, this site has some good info on the toxicity of chapsticks and other balms: An extensive article on lip balms appeared in the November 13, 1997 issue of... (more)
