Smooth Out Dry, Scaly Skin On Elbows And Knees

Cold temperatures and dry air can leave your elbows and knees discolored and as rough as sandpaper, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. But there are home remedies you can try to spring yourself from the prison of chapped skin around your joints.

Daily Glow recommends combining chickpea flour and yogurt, then massaging the gunk into your skin before washing it off. Aloe vera and a corn flour-water paste are also worth a try.

Another recommendation from the post is to exfoliate the rough skin with a scrub, then moisturize it with a honey or glycerin-based soap.

Covering the affected areas with clothing should also help the healing process.
