To treat you skin at home, use a gentle cleanser or exfoliator in the shower. Next apply a hydrating moisturizer that contains shea or cocoa butter to your elbows, at least twice a day. You can use a lighter cream for daytime use, and a heavier cream at night. Natural oils are also a great treatment for dry skin and include olive, coconut, or grape seed.
Lemon Juice Treatment
Cut a lemon in half and use it to gently rub your elbows. The lemon juice is a natural astringent. Finish by dabbing the lemon juice off, making sure not to rub. Do this treatment 2-3 times a week.
