I was given product for this review. All opinions are my own.
People like my mom have to limit their liquids. Mom is in kidney failure, and because her kidneys do not function, she cannot process liquids normally. She cannot drink the recommended 8 glasses of water a day, but rather sip to get along. As a result, her skin is extremely dry and becomes extremely itchy. There have been many times when I have found scabbing all over her back from where she has scratched her dry skin.
It’s really sad to see her in this state if internal and external dehydration. But one thing that has helped ease her difficulties is rosehip oil, like this Foxbrim Organic Rosehip Seed Oil.
I have used other Rosehip oil on mom before, but what I really like about this oil is that it is dispensed with a pump. Most essential oils are dispensed with a dropper, and if you are trying to use it to moisturize, it can get pretty messy when trying to use it on a large area of skin. With this, there is a lot less mess to deal with, and there’s easy application.
Mom loves how soothing it feels, and whenever I apply it, her skin stops itching. Now, I can’t be behind mom every second of the day for rosehip oil duty, but this does make things a bit easier on her.
I am always looking for ways to make my mom’s life better as her caregiver. This is highly recommended, and if it can help my mother’s illness-related, extremely dry skin, it might be able to help your dry, itchy skin as well.
