topical evening primrose oil

Recommended Posts

has anyone tried using evening primrose oil topically for dry skin and/or acne?

its supposed to help restore the normal lipid barrier and prevent water loss. the reason it works is apparently due to high linoleic and gamma-linoleic acid values. i always have dry skin so i think it might help. im sure my health food store will have the capsules but im hoping to find the pure oil in a bottle. its supposed to go rancid quickly so im a little worried about that too.
