    Hi,


    I am 40. Of late, I have started experiencing this dry skin issue. My legs (just around my ankle), feet, forearms, palms and fingers are dry inrrespective of the season. Is there a fix? I know, aging constitutes to be a big reason. Curious, though.

    I always had a rough skin in my butt. Any solutions? I have tried certain things but it comes back. Any solutions?

    Dear An,

    As we age, the activity of our sebaceous glands (oil) decreases- explaining the dry skin.

    Try a great moisturizer with ceramides such as cerave cream or cetaphil restoraderm.

    On the buttock you can try an OTC milk acid cream to help smooth the rough skin - such as Amlactin.

    I hope that helps
