HELP!!! What to do for dry, alligator-like elbows? My skin is so dry and flaky that it+++

hurts! I've tried just plain moisturizer, but it doesn't seem to penetrate. Should I use some kind of exfoliant first? Help please...they look and feel awful. :(

I have tried this...doesn't seem to help...maybe it takes a while?? I want FAST! Thanx tho :)finn471/27/2013 1:24PM

aha does work, but perhaps u need a higher percentage, AHA is the best MOISTURIZERmorganna7771/28/2013 10:22PM

in the summer I use Alba Papaya Enzyme mask first then an AHA over. Good luckchayaNY1/27/2013 2:04PM
