Skin on elbows and knees naturally tend to be dry, due to the lack of oil glands in those areas. Being used more than other body parts, daily, the elbows and knees become flaky, chapped, rough and scaly. With the warm weather gracing you with its presence, make sure your elbows and knees are making a healthy appearance.
Dry and discolored skin on elbows and knees, can usually be repaired with these two solutions:
- Exfoliate- Help your body regenerate healthy skin by gently removing dead skin cells. Do this 2-3 times a week.
- Moisturize- If you are using a body polish in step #1, then you are already sealing in moisture. However, your elbows and knees will not object to more TLC. Moisturizing right after a bath or shower is best (45-minute window). Remember, when you are giving that bit of TLC to your hands, feet, and neck at bedtime, give love to your knees and elbows, too.
If dry, rough elbows and knees are a problem for you, try the tips above. You will notice a difference.
Don't have those problems? Good. Add the tips above to your bath & body regimen, and continue to have healthy looking elbows and knees.
