Some skincare concerns are incredibly straightforward. You have a sunburn? Reach for some anti-inflammatory aloe to help soothe the redness and irritation. Your t-zone is extra oily? Incorporate ingredients like salicylic acid and witch hazel into your routine to help balance your oil and make way for a more mattified visage.
One skincare concern that’s not as obvious as far as treatments go? Dry elbows. While you might think that applying any hydrating cream would do the trick, if you’ve ever actually had dry elbows, then you know that’s not the case.

Hartman, MD; Sandy Skotnicki, MD; and Tiffany J. Libby, MD, address the most stubborn elbow skin.
