Treating dry skin from the outside is only half the battle. There’s no amount of lotions or potions that will give you smooth, supple skin unless you have the basic nutritional foundation for great skin. Foods rich in Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids; Vitamins A, C & E; zinc, sulfur, silica, and more are as vital to your skin’s health as keeping adequately hydrated.
We developed this health bar recipe specifically to help with dry skin in winter. Every ingredient is jam-packed with nutritional elements specifically chosen for your skin. It’s a great, not-too-sweet breakfast bar that stores well in either the refrigerator or freezer. Remember to drink a full glass of water with each bar to get the full benefits.
