Rough Feet & Elbows

Thick skin on the soles of the feet is easy to control when you combine physical and “chemical” exfoliation. By “chemical” exfoliation I mean the use of keratolytics. Keratolytics are ingredients in skin care products that break up keratin so dead cells shed better. The most effective keratolytic ingredient in skin care products for this job is glycolic acid. It works best when prepared in a professional strength at an acid pH. Using a keratolytic cream or lotion combined with physical exfoliation (such as a rough scrub, sponge, cloth, or file) will remove dead cells much more effectively so that you can enjoy smooth skin. Once your rough skin is controlled, use the exfoliation routine as needed to maintain results. Also be sure to use a moisturizer after bathing to keep your skin soft and supple.

Rough skin on the feet can happen from rubbing and friction in shoes or going barefoot. It also happens to women after menopause (called keratoderma climactericum). Athlete’s foot causes rough skin, too. If you think you have athletes foot, be certain to use a medicated cream designed to treat this foot fungus.

Rough skin on the hands is more complicated. If the rough skin on your hands is due to irritation with harsh soaps and chemicals, you need to moisturize after washing until your hands heal. This is because the roughness is actually an irritant dermatitis. Simply using one of my hand kits, such as the Survival Kit for Busy Hands, may be enough to do the trick.
