CROC/ALLIGATOR SKIN

STTAAR posted:
I have had what looks like crocodile pattern (small & large square) on my legs for about 2-3 years. It looks like deep lines but they feel smooth like they have another layer of skin on top.

Last year it started appearing on my arms by my shoulders. I drank water like crazy and the arms got smoother but the legs are still the same. I have continued to drink water. I have used St. Ives to exfoliate my legs every week and have used cheap one dollar lotions and expensive 50 dollar face and body creams and lotions. I have also been taking multi-vitamins to see if it might be a vitamin deficiency

I am at the end of my rope and hope to shed some light on this type of dry skin, if that is what it really is.

You may want to try a products that contain glycolic or salicylic acids. Glytone has a good one that's around $35.00. I think it's call "retexturizing lotion". Be careful - it's has a pretty high acid % - don't use after you shave.
