Really, really dry skin on the legs!!
Hello May, there’s actually a gene that is fairly common that causes this skin problem. The medical term for it is Ichthyosis Vulgaris and is an old, old name that means like fish scales. Who thought of some of these names anyway?? 🙂
Most of the time, regular skin lotions don’t make much difference for this problem. This SkinCeuticals Body Retexturing Treatment really works. You might want to also try Amlactin or Lachydrin? These are both over the counter skin lotions that have some extra ingredients that help with this very dry skin. Use them for at least 1 month before you decide if they are working.
