I've been living the primal lifestyle for about 6 months now and I'm loving it! I have great energy, I've lost some weight, and I'm feeling good! The only problem is my extremely dry skin. It's not a rash, but peeling become its so dry.

I've been researching and found it could be because of the accumulated toxins in my fat that are being released, candida, or because I'm not getting enough glucose. I've been putting coconut oil and baby oil on my skin to no avail :-(

Has anyone else has this problem? Should I introduce more "safe" carbs into my diet? Did a lotion or an oil work for you?

I really appreciate the responses. I don't want to stop eating this way but my skin's pretty disgusting :-(
