“Elbows are often neglected in personal care procedures, just because they are not directly visible in the mirror. However that does not make them any less important. This part of the arms should be thoroughly cleaned and nourished regularly” says stylist Sabrina. Now that we are all aware of your elbows and realizing it’s winter and thinking of how dry our skin gets; here are some tips to help get your elbows looking good and feeling soft!
Using a sponge-stone or scrub mask before taking a shower. Once the skin starts to soften apply the greasiest cream you can find. By doing this routine regularly will help keep elbows soft no matter your age. You can also go the cosmetic route by using creams containing vitamins A, E and F or almond oil and herbal extracts. Regularly using these types of cream before bed will help maintain smooth elbows. Essential oils are also great for soften dry and rough elbows by either adding them to your bath or heating the oil and soaking your elbows for 15 minutes. But do not use these creams or oils if your elbows are crack or irritated. Only use for dry rough skin. And of course, the main key is regular TLC!
