RE: Dry Skin, Hands

Yes, I experienced more dry skin when I transitioned. However, I learned quickly how to remedy this! I figured out that I was eating the wrong fats (oils, mostly).
My skin (and the rest of me) seems to respond well to mainly the Omega-3 fats: flaxseed and walnuts. I do have a little avocado now and then. I stay away from any added oils. My main fat intake comes from raw, unsalted nuts and seeds of all types: almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, redskin peanuts, and occasionally cashews.
I've found that when I eat like this, and use a good quality moisturizer on my hands, my skin stays in very good condition. I hope that helps you!
