Remove Rough Skin On Elbows And Knees

rough elbows and knees

You try to keep your body soft and supple, but some parts may have slipped past you unknowingly, until you notice that they’re now rougher and darker than the rest of your skin. That’s right, your knees and elbows need attention just like any other part of your body. But don’t worry, because there’s a quick fix for the dry, rough skin on your knees and elbows. It’s as easy as one, two, three – literally.

1. Exfoliate – Exfoliating is super important for every part of the body. Using a body scrub or a dry brush helps to get rid of any of the dead skin cells and also increases circulation, so you can remove rough skin and have a healthy glow. Use a loofah or a brush in a circular motion on your elbows and knees while showering.

2. Moisturize – You’ve gotten rid of the dead skin and now you have to maintain it. Use a body lotion or baby oil two or three times a day to keep your skin smooth and hydrated. Drinking water also hydrates your body from the inside out, so don’t forget about those eight glasses of H20 a day!

3. Home Remedies – Try a home remedy on for size as a weekly treatment to get rid of rough skin on the elbows and knees. Cut a lemon in half and rub onto the elbows and knees for ten minutes. The lemons acidity will remove dead skin cells and will also lighten dark spots over time.
