Getting rid of dry and ashy elbows isn’t as simple as using a moisturizer regularly. Here are some tips to help you address this issue and give your elbows the TLC they deserve. (1) Exfoliate your elbows with a gentle scrub 2-3 times a week. (2) Switch from hot to lukewarm water when bathing. When the water is too hot, it can strip the essential oils from your skin and lead to dry elbows. (3) Moisturize immediately after your shower. Applying moisturizer on damp skin can help seal in hydration. (4) Try a humidifier. Living in a space with dry air could contribute to ashy, rough elbows. Adding a humidifier to your home or office can add moisture to the air and help relieve dry skin.
