Dry skin
An_245429 posted:

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
