Skin Care Tip: Lemon cure for rough elbows

Rough elbows is an annoying and sometimes embarrassing problem. There is a simple fix that almost always works. Take a lemon and cut in two. Dip your elbows into the lemon halves, find a comfortable position and stay for about 10 minutes. When done, rinse off the lemon juice and apply moisturizing lotion, vaseline or, if you skin got irritated, some zinc oxide ointment. Repeat next day if the result wasn't sufficient.

The idea of this treatment is simple. The lemon juice is highly acidic and acts as an exfoliant, sloughing rough skin off your elbows. But do not try this on your face -- facial skin is more delicate and is easily irritated by the high level of acidity in lemon juice.
