Just recently I've realised my elbows have passed their prime. Never used to give a thought to elbows. They're not dry as such (I moisturise all the time) they're just...a bit wrinkly and no longer young looking. Though, that's a stupid thing to say, I realise; what do I expect at 46? So am just here to ask if you have any tips for improving the look of this particular part of the body. Can't imagine there's much one can do, but it's worth asking, eh?

All tips gratefully received grin)

I mix salt and olive oil to make a scrub smile makes elbows lovely and smooth smile ( and knees and bottom ;)

Moisturising, scrubbing and not being too skinny are your only options really.

I've had a rose tattooed on each of mine, that disappears a multitude of wrinkly sins but, well, it's not for everyone wink

I can honestly say I've never noticed anyone's elbows, wrinkly or otherwise. You may be overthinking this.

No, I never have either!

Coconut oil and sugar scrub.

I use the remains of my Flexitol and rub it on my elbows.

Lettuce, love the sound of the elbow roses! Tattoos wouldn't suit me, though I love them on others. It's a fabulous idea though. Am picturing it now...

SweetAndFull It's ok, I won't give it too much further thought ;o) Just one of those things that occurs to you (me) now and again. I am guilty of overthinking a lot of things, but I don't think this will be on (famous last words...)

I will continue to scrub and moisturise and leave them to it. Thanks for your replies!
