Don't have much feedback about your skin, but olive oil is not your best bet for cooking - it's best unheated or at low heats. For cooking, use coconut oil, animal fats (tallow, lard, duck fat, etc) and ghee (clarified butter - you can clarify... (more)

If you're just paleo for general health, you're probably okay using those things, but if you have known wheat issues, at least cut the lip balm, since it has a direct path to your stomach. I'm sensitive to wheat, and I finally figured out that one... (more)

Certain fatty acids are absorbed through the skin, yes. fatty acids absorbed in this way would be unlikely to cause inflammation like consuming an o6 heavy food or oil might.
