Rough skin

Hey all

For years the skin on my elbows turned dark-brown, rugged, dry and very wrinkly. Now it looks sort of like leather or reptilian skin or something. I do use pumice stones, scrubbing, exfoliating: you name it. Does anyone know what I am talking about and how to improve it?

Thanks

BTW, the situation is worse than in the photo And other than that, my body is top-notch hotness

    Have you tried Cocoa butter, a few people I know use it with good results.

    H20 I did use cocoa scrub but not cocoa butter per se. Thanks for the advice though, I'll get some cocoa butter. Should I use it after or before scrubbing?

    How about trying stuff designed for cracked heels?

    Actually I've been using that for a week or so, so far only minor improvement but I am thankful for that too. Maybe there's no easy fix.

    I used to suffer from the same thing, I used coconut butter and it cleared up within weeks.

    No Dave. Do you? Because if you do, don't worry, we're not here to judge your "baw sack".
