4 Tips for Smoothing Rough Elbows & Knees4 Tips for Smoothing Rough Elbows & Knees

For the longest time I suffered from having really rough elbows and knees. It seemed like no matter I did, how much lotion I applied, I still couldn't get those babies nice and smooth. Well, after doing some research and figuring out what to do with this problem, I finally have smooth elbows and knees. Today I am going to be sharing with you tips and tricks to get smooth knees and elbows. If you are suffering from these issues be sure to keep reading.

Vaseline is Your Friend

When it comes to dry and rough knees and elbows I really recommend using Vaseline to help you out. It will not only help to moisturize the dry area but you can actually apply the Vaseline to your dry patches. Next jump in the shower and the Vaseline will actually help to keep that area moisturized and act as almost a shield so that your skin doesn't get quite so dry after having a shower.


If you suffer from extremely dry skin, it is so important to exfoliate at least once or twice a week. This helps to take off any dry dead skin and allows your skin to look cleaner, and more moisturized. You can exfoliate by getting a body scrub and loofah and simply washing your body with that once or twice a week instead of your normal body wash. I am particularly fond of these Kiloline Exfoliating Loofah Pads and my husband loves the Aquis Exfoliating Back Scrubber.

Drink Plenty of Water

Drinking a lot of water is so important when it comes to your skin. If you aren't getting enough water, your skin will start to show it by looking extremely dry and scaly. Be sure that you are drinking the appropriate amount of water in your day for your body type and I can guarantee you will notice a difference in your skin. Grab your favorite water bottle and keep it with you at all times.

Moisturize Often

Lastly, it is important to moisturize your skin regularly. I try to moisturize in the mornings before I get dressed for the day, and after any time that I have been in water such as the shower, washing your hands, or swimming. My favorite moisturizer is this Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. When you get into water, it can be extremely drying for the skin…kind of ironic right? So just make sure to always have some lotion on hand and moisturize when you get out.

I know what it is like to have dry patches of skin and it doesn't look or feel good. I have found that these simple things have helped me out a ton lately with my skin and I know they will help with yours as well, so give them a try and see how they work for you.

  1. I always use Vaseline fro my elbows, knees, and feet. Those are my problem areas. They get so incredibly dry. I never thought about how drinking water could help. It makes sense, though.

    Drinking water is so important. You can’t have hydrated skin if you aren’t hydrated yourself!

  3. I have never thought about vaseline on my elbows or knees. The loofah scrubbing is hard for me to get into because I don’t see immediate results, but I am going to have to take everyone’s word for it that it works and I should do it before every shower!

  4. Catherine S

    Thank you for the tips. I need to pick up some Vaseline when I go to the store. I also need to start drinking more water.

  5. My heels get really dry. I exfoliate them and put lotion on them. I think the Vaseline would help more than the lotion.

  6. These are great tips and would work well for dry or cracked heels too. I have found my skin is best when I consistently drink plenty of water.

  8. Vaseline is a staple over here. Seriously. It’s the one never fail fix!

  9. I have that same coconut oil and always forget how great for your skin it is. This time of year is so dry. I need to bust out the coconut oil for sure.

  10. Winter was rough on my skin, but spring has sprung! It’s time to get my skin back to in order. Need to stock up on Vaseline!

  11. Exfoliating always helps a lot. During this time of year, my elbows tend to get so dry! I also like the cocoa butter Vaseline!
