Dry knees

I'm sure this has been done before so apologies.

My knees are soooo dry, to the extent that I feel I can't inflict them on the world this summer if they remain in their current state.

I think they've been like it for ages but it never bothered me until a couple of summers ago when a male colleague asked me what on earth I'd done to bruise my knees so badly blush I've been a bit conscious of them since then!

So do I just keep moisurising? Anyone else have knees like this? Is there a miracle product out there that I don't know about?

Body Shop body butter with a layer of Vaseline on top

exfoliate like a demon and moisturise as much as you can

I usually spring into action with a scrubbity doodah after christmas...decolletage, upper arms, elbows, knees, shins, ankles, top of feet

i try not to use too much soapy stuff, just vigorous scrubbing and then slather on whatever lotions and potions I find about the house.

I just bought the Aveeno cream oil, or oil cream... it smells amazing, but I love marzipan.

Bio oil might help

I have elbows like that. Marking the spot!!!
I tried rubbing them with olive oil and salt. Did make them lovely and soft. You could try that?

Another vote for Aveeno here - just discovered it and it's fab. Think its on offer in Superdrug at the mo too

Oh and Sanctuary 4 day moisture scrub is good too

I've had some success using foot cream that has urea in it

Korean "italy towels" for exfoliating, then moisturise. You're ashy. ;) (Bill Burr on ashiness)

Thanks everyone! I am stuck at home with a chickepoxy dd but will be perusing Superdrug as soon as we're released back into the wild grin

I have to admit to using my Scholl velvet smooth on my dry knees blush. It's done the trick followed by plenty of moisturiser.
