Prevent Dry Skin On Knees, Elbows and Heels

How To Prevent Your Elbows, Heels and Knees from Drying

As our skin is thinner around our joints in the summer months when knees, elbows and heels are more exposed to the elements (sun, wind, water) and are unprotected from clothing, skin needs extra care to prevent dry skin on knees, elbows and heels becoming unsightly.

Skin Health Hub Skin Conditions Prevent Dry Skin on Knees, Elbows and Heels1. Exfoliate

Exfoliate rough patches of skin to remove the top layer of dry skin and better prepare skin to be able to absorb a moisturizing cream.

Exfoliating using a hand-mitt and body wash as you shower offers an easy solution to the problem of dry skin on your elbows and knees. Remember to always wash with warm water not hot water, and keep your showering time under 10 minutes to avoid drying out your skin further.

2. Moisturize Daily

The best time to moisturize your body is immediately after showering and towel drying. The aim is for your skin to remain slightly damp. This way your cream moisturizer is absorbed more deeply into the skin and results in a longer lasting moisturized effect.

Moisturizing oil-based creams containing; argan oil or pure oils such as coconut and almond oil although effective can leave the skin with an oily residue. Whereas body butters containing shea butter and glycerin can work best for a deeper hydration when massaged well into the skin.

One rich cream formulation we love at Skin Health Hub is NeoStrata Dry Skin Cream. This rich cream softens even the most heavily calloused skin, severely dry, rough and thickened skins. With a formulation including:

  • 20% Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)
  • Pro-Vitamin E and
  • Maltobionic Acid

The highly emollient beeswax and skin conditioning oils in NeoStrata Dry Skin Cream helps to instantly reduce the skin roughness, scaling and flaking associated with hyperkeratosis and ichthyosis to prevent dry skin on knees, elbows and heels.
