Did you ever wonder why elbows and knees have such tough skin? The reason that our skin is rougher in those areas is because the top layer of those parts are made of dead cells. Though this coarse skin gives us a bit of protection for all those occasions we may bump into something or fall, unsightly elbows and knees that feel like sandpaper hardly makes us feel beautiful. Therefore, you need to treat the skin in those areas with a great moisturizer, but not just any sort of lotion or cream. You need one that will do more, mainly exfoliate if you plan to beautify those rough elbows and knees to bare this summer.
To really help those elbows and knees, look for a product that has also has salicylic acid or alpha hydroxy acid that has at least a 12% concentration and urea. These particular ingredients will moisturize the skin, but also slough away the roughness that you want gone in no time!
Something else that can help make make dry elbows and knees a problem of the past is drinking more water. Sometimes, we forget how important hydrating ourself from the inside reflects how we care for our skin on the outside. Therefore, you also might want to start substituting more water instead of too much coffee, tea or sodas. A simple trick that you may want to try to help drink more water is this one that a friend shared with me.
