If the aesthetic appearance of your skin is important to you, then elbow care is a must. Without care and nourishment, with age, the skin in these areas becomes very rough, sagging, acquires either yellow or gray, or a white-powdery shade.

First of all, there are people at risk who do not care for their elbows at all. Secondly, the skin on the elbows suffers from office workers, or those who work at the table, often leaning on the elbows.
Constant friction leads to an increase in the epidermis at these places is the coarsening of the skin, as on the heels. The skin of the elbows often loses the appearance of nursing mothers, who lie on the bed when feeding, leaning on the elbow, creating all the same friction.
Causes of excessive dryness of the skin can be a lack of vitamins A, E and D in the body, an unbalanced diet or hormonal disturbance.
Simple skin care will help to avoid skin roughness on elbows. If you do not have enough time for special procedures for the elbows, you should acquire the habit of at least not ignoring this zone when you apply the cream on your hands. Spread and elbows!

To maintain the beauty of the elbows, you must thoroughly clean the skin every day. It is enough to take a shower with a sponge or washcloth.
The product used in the wash should be thoroughly washed. If you regularly leave traces of soap, gel, foam foam on your body, this leads to skin dryness. After a shower, you need to wipe well, not leaving moisture on the skin, and then use a nourishing cream.

From rough, rough skin will help a great tool – oil baths. Take olive oil, heat it, but do not bring to a boil (it should be pleasantly warm). Pour into a convenient container where your elbows fit, and keep them in oil for at least 15 minutes.
Then you need to blot your elbows with a napkin, removing excess oil, rubbing the remnants of the skin. Oil can be left until the next procedure. Repeat bath need a day before the onset of effect.
And he will come soon, provided that there are no additional diseases, or the case is not very neglected.
To enhance the nutritional effect of the oil baths, it is best to carry them out immediately after scrubbing (the scrub, of course, needs to be washed off and the elbows dried).
If you have tried all means, but you don’t see the effect, it means that the elbow skin needs professional help and you should contact your beautician. In cosmetology, there are a number of procedures that can help cope with the problem.
As a rule, peeling peels, laser polishing are done on the elbows, which lead to a good result.
