Of course everyone suffers from dry skin. And there are so many moisturizers to choose from. But, did you know that some people suffer every day of their entire life? This common skin condition is called Icthyosis Vulgaris (translated, fish skin). What is it? Ever hold hands with someone who had it? You would remember the experience! The dry scaly texture is very real and very difficult to reverse. It is embarrassing for those who suffer. Some topical treatments help, but give only mild relief temporarily. The entire body is involved, but hands and legs are typically the worst. Large plate-like scales can form, especially in cold weather. Icthyosis (severe lifetime dry skin) is hereditary, so one parent and some of the children typically have similar conditions.


NOW REAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE!!! After you’ve seen several doctors and gotten very little relief, what do you do? I have found that a combination of topical and oral therapy has brought the BEST long lasting relief. This consists of EPIONCE BALANCING TONER applied morning and night, followed immediately by EPIONCE RENEWAL ENRICHED BODY LOTION. (For the hands, substitute EPIONCE MEDICAL BARRIER CREAM in AM and EPIONCE EXTREME BARIER CREAM at bedtime. Remember to always spray on EPIONCE BALANCING TONER first.)

The oral medication that empowers the topical therapies above, FROM THE INSIDE OUT, is over the counter LOMA LUX PSORIASIS. This oral liquid is taken once daily on an empty fasted stomach, typically when you first get out of bed in the morning. Then after taking it with water only, you should wait on breakfast, coffee, etc. for about an hour. This allows the unique ingredients (special minerals) to get maximally absorbed. After a month of consistent combination topical AND oral therapy, most people with dry skin – even the severe Icthyosis type – experience a lifetime best soft smooth skin! Itching is also improved. The longer the therapy, the better the improvements.

REAL TIME–While writing this blog I stopped to see a patient with lifetime dry skin. She also has a parent and children with similar skin. She has used the above combination therapy for one year. She told me that this is the BEST and only thing that has ever helped her. I hear this frequently.

Of course this regimen needs to be continued to maintain the best results. However, it can often be interrupted during warm weather months–as my patient above did this summer, only needing to restart therapy in early November. Please, if you know of someone who suffers from dry skin, let them know of this. They may be discouraged, so you may have to be persistent, but this will be a Godsend to them!

As always, many Psalms 103 Healing Blessings!
