Moisturizing and Exfoliating Bumpy Elbows
The adage “out of sight, out of mind” applies to many things, but it shouldn’t apply to our elbows! Just because we usually don’t see them doesn’t mean they are any less deserving of a good moisturizer. We’ve all neglected the skin on our elbows at some point and we all know that it doesn’t take long for that thick buildup of rough, bumpy skin to make an appearance. At SkinDirect, we understand that elbows deserve just as much tender loving care as other areas of our skin. SkinDirect’s personal esthetician has tried several products, but two stand out above the crowd.
Glytone Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream does two jobs with one fabulous product. It removes dry, course, and dull skin while gently exfoliating and also provides a huge dose hydration to problem areas like elbows and heels, then seals it in with glycerin. This product can be used daily, but is not intended for use on the face.
SkinDirect’s esthetician also recommends DCL AHA Revitalizing Cream 20 because it is 20% glycolic acid. Glycolic acid, while traditionally found in at-home facial peels, is known for its ability to remove dead skin cells and reveal newer, more hydrated, healthier skin underneath. While DCL AHA Revitalizing Cream can be used anywhere you need skin restoration, it is highly recommended for use on problem areas like elbows, heels, and knees.
As with any moisturizer, it is best to use these products right after showering or bathing to help lock in your skin’s natural moisture. Get ready to say goodbye to rough, bumpy elbows and hello to the beautiful skin waiting to make an appearance!
