    Very Very dry skin

    Hai Moms,

    My 3yr old son has extremely dry skin.I use sesame oil before bathing and aqueous cream while going out.
    I was wondering if i can use sesame oil before bed at night on his legs and hands.
    I just read abt brown sugar and olive oil.is it okay to use sesameoil instead of Oilve oil.

    thankyou so much for your time and advice :-)

    brown sugar is excellent. use brown sugar & whatever oil you fancy, (i use grapeseed). get brown or chinese cane sugar (the ones in bars & very dark in color, we use it for desserts, available in any supermarkets). chinese old wives swear by chinese cane sugar. i pound them up, cook in a pot to melt, then put in a glass jar, add oil, and close. put in bathroom, everyday after bath, smear on skin, wait maybe 2 mins, & rinse off. you can use them too, you hubby will be happy about your smooth skin!!

    menya_feb : proportion of sugar & oil. i cook the oil until it's melted, put in a glass jar, and then i just put the oil a little above the sugar line. so it depends how much sugar you have, but always add oil so the oil is above the sugar. you probably have to stir to mix well.

    you can try only one piece of bar sugar first & see how you like it. try it on yourself first. plus, once the sugar is cooled, it's like a scrub.

    if you like you can put a little essential oil. tea tree for disinfecting, lemon for uplifting, chamomile for calming, lavender for relaxation, etc.

    you probably didn't cook it enough to melt it all through. try pouring it in a pot & let it cook on slow fire to melt thoroughly & then some. until you can really stir through it like a syrup. if it's too condensed, then scoop some out & add more oil.

    what happened to mine was when it is cooked thru & cooled, the sugar became crystal-like. & the consistency of the mixture is like those home-made scrubs.
