Dealing With Problem Skin Areas

The skin is by far the largest organ of the body. As a result, there’s always a problem area or difficult patch of skin that gives you trouble. Whether it’s scaly elbows, rough knees, dry feet or calloused hands, there’s a remedy that can help you get your skin glowing and feeling exactly the way that you want it to feel— soft and touchable.

Dealing With Elbows And Knees

Due to the difficulty of reaching your elbows and the way the joints of the elbows and knees work, it can be difficult to deal with dry skin issues on these particular parts of the body. When left untreated, or when some treatments fail, patches of thick, dry, itchy skin can appear on the elbows and knees with little to no warning. As a result, the need to exfoliate these areas of the body on a regular basis is great! If you don’t manage to exfoliate your elbows and knees as often as you like, or you’re trying to correct an ongoing problem, you’ll need to do some intensive work.

Get a serious exfoliating scrub, maybe something with sugar and ground up nuts for the healthy oils involved, and give your elbows and knees a good scrub. Be sure to bend and flex your limbs often to ensure that you’re getting the full range of skin, and when you’re done with the scrubbing, rinse off and be sure to give your elbows and legs a good moisturizing session with something formulated for severely dry skin.

Rough Feet And Hands

The best thing you can do is to give yourself a manicure and/or pedicure. There are skin files that help you slough off dead, dry layers of skin from the soles of your feet; it might tickle a bit, but it’s a lot like sanding a piece of wood until it’s smooth. When increased sensation reaches your foot, you know you’ve sloughed enough skin. Be sure to moisturize, and then stick socks on your feet right away so that the moisture is sealed in overnight. When you wake up in the morning, your feet will feel like new. You can do something similar with your hands: wash your hands in an exfoliating scrub, slather them with intensive moisturizing hand cream, and put on a pair of gloves overnight. You’ll be amazed by the results!
