Paper-Thin Skin

I have several elderly clients with very thin skin. The skin tears easily with the slightest abrasion. Also, it bruises easily, leaving dark purple areas on the hands and forearms.

As a favor, I'm researching treatments for aging and thinning skin. I've found a link that claims emu oil contains essential fatty acids, omega3 and omega-6, that helps repair and thicken aged skin.

Also, I found an herbal skin repair cream with Calendula, Comfrey and Yarrow extracts, and Bach flower essences.
