Sea buckthorn oil is something you may not have ever heard of, but I am thankful I have. Growing up I had very bad skin issues. My skin was very dry and nothing seemed to help. About four years ago my acupuncturist recommended Sea buckthorn oil. I have been taking this supplement for the last four years and wow what a difference it has made.
