I had this. Less time in the shower, slightly cooler showers and using only a small amount of unscented bar soap has cleared it up. Skin looks after itself, so treat it as gently as possible to keep it clean and healthy.
What moisturiser are you using? I have very dry skin on my legs and e45, nivea, Vaseline intensive etc are no good. Aveeno is the only one that actually makes a difference. I use bar soap too and only a quick once over in the shower with it as my legs are rarely actually 'dirty'
I was using neutrogena foot cream on my cracked heels and rubbed it on my crocodile skin shins once. It was like magic! Its the norwegian formila one and I can only buy it on amazon Only cream that has ever worked for me.
Ha ha emsyj I was coming on to say the same Korean Italy towels really are a game changer. I soak,then scrub, then slather myself in Aldi moisturiser (the one in the blue bottle) my skin has never been softer or more glowing.
I have always had dry scaly shins until..... I ditched soap/shower gel altogether and started using oil cleanser in the shower. I'd swapped to oil cleanser for my face with great success so got one for the body and it's amazing, dry scaly shins are gone with no effort
