I would add magnesium oil rather than the salts. They aren't at all drying. I also think that it's the "quality" of the AVG that you use that can make it drying. I, personally, found FOTE drying--so use health food quality aloe vera (gel or juice) or Essential Wholesale Simple Aloe Jelly in my FSG.
