However, our digestive systems find it ‘tough’, to put it perfectly, to digest and absorb the useful nutrients of these and other foods as we age. Thankfully, we now know that our skin, being the biggest organ, permits far higher absorption and instant use of healthy oils, while bypassing the digestion system. Just as hormone and other skin patches work trans-dermally, so too can we use oils to our skin and reap their advantages.

Recently, a few oils appeared on natural food store shelves that allow us to improve the condition of our skin, perhaps very considerably, while avoiding those ‘nasty’ additives so frequently found in routine skin ‘care’ products.
