I was unsure whether to post this at first as this was not recommended to me by a doctor, I literally found an article online, I tried it for myself and it worked!
My skin had been so bad lately, it was so dry and sore and my eczema was the worse it had been - ever. I was looking online for some advice/products - anything really, and I came across a forum whereby people were saying that these tablets were curing their eczema. There were so many comments from different people saying how it really had 'cured' them. I've always heard that 'you cant cure eczema' and 'it's a way of life' but the amount of comments on there really did get my hopes up.
So I popped into Holland & Barretts and bought the 1000MG Flaxseed Oil Capsules, they were £13 for 120. The actual oil is cheaper but it tastes so disgusting that I had to go with the tablets!
I'm going to tell you what I did but first I'm going to say that this is just what I done and that I am going against the directions on the back of the bottle. That's my decision alone and was just because of how bad my skin was and how desperate I felt. I had such dry sensitive skin that most creams that I was applying burnt and were so uncomfortable it was horrible. I really wouldn't recommend this if you have oily skin as I have no idea if it would be right for you - my skin was literally the complete opposite and had no moisture to it what so ever.
So what did I do? For the first few days I took one tablet ever hour. I know this sounds obsessive & scary but I was so down over my skin I was ready to try anything.The recommended daily intake is 2 casuals a day, I was taking around 8 or 9 a day for the first 3 days to give my skin a big boost. I then cut down to taking 2 in the morning first thing, 1 at lunch time and 2 in the evening - I have now been doing that for 3 weeks. My skin today is amazing, in 3 weeks my eczema has completely cleared and my skin is so soft and flake free its incredible. I actually cant believe it. Now that my skin is normal again i'm going to cut down to 4 casuals a day, which is double the recommended daily dosage but i'm going to see how I get on. I'm hoping to get down to 2 (the correct dosage) in a couple of weeks.
The reason I wasn't sure whether to post this was because I am going against the advice on the bottle but in doing so my skin has completely transformed. I was so down and conscious about my skin and now I feel like me again. I wished I had taken before and after pictures but I didn't even think about it at the time.
I really hope this helps any of you with skin like mine and I suppose you just have to judge it for yourself really, perhaps try taking 2 a day for a couple of weeks to see if there is an improvement and if not maybe step it up a notch.
