Wow - Crisco? I might give that a try.... My DS also has bad dry skin - i use grapseed oil TWICE a day ...also i use olive oil in his bath , make sure the bath water is not too hot - and we only bathe him every other day or so.
Looking for a strong, effective lotion for my DS's dry skin - Page 2
thumbs up for all the coconut oil users!! my husband is a carpenter and not only do his hands crack and bleed from being dried out due to weather, work-realted issues like drywall, etc...but he used to have a terrible candida overgrowth which resulted in cracked, broken, yellowed and deformed fingernals and nail beds. he started slathering crazy amounts of cocnut oil on before bed(very high in anti-fungal properties) and after a while not only did his hands become smoother than a baby's bottom, but his names grew in beautifully and no more cracking ...nice normal healthy looking nails!
