Is there a treatment for paper thin skin on arms?

My doctor told me that the reason the skin on my arms are so thin is because I used to sunbath every single day. Now the skin on my arms are paper thin. I use sunblocks now. Wish I had listened to my mother when I was young. There has to be something I can put on my arms to help thicken the skin, but I have no clue what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh those pesky vitamins ;) I feel you I don't get enough iron, every time I try to give blood I'm just barely, barely able if not at all so I too had to bump up my vitamin intake. I'm glad the vitamin D is working on your hair. I also take fish oil which seems to help and have heard vitamin E is good too.

Have a great weekend!



HI Kathryn,

I'm not sure if there is anything exactly, but maybe some of those lotions with Vitamin E in them. Also I take Flax Seed oil and vitamin D which is supposed to be good for your skin. Just some ideas.



Not sure if Vit D and Flax Seed with work or not, but will surely try it. Actually, my doctor tested the strength of Vit D in my body and it was to the point of almost non-existant. I began taking Vit D and my hair is coming in thicker. My hair had gotten so thin that you could see my scalp. Been taking Vit D for six months now and my scalp is hardly noticeable. Thank you Lord!!!
