Dealing with the skin on your face (also known as your complexion) is usually what is focused on when dealing with skin. That's the skin that is the most sensitive, and that's what people usually notice and see the most. However, you can have skin problems elsewhere besides your face. Having rough skin is one of those issues that may cause you grief that you may want to remedy. How do you get rid of rough skin? Rough skin, being tougher than normal skin, is hard to remove without affecting the surrounding skin areas. By adhering to these simple guidelines, you'll be better able to tackle your unwanted rough skin.

Rough skin is often a result of calluses or extremely dry skin. To address the former, calluses are pretty simply to deal with. Calluses are a result of a repeated wearing of an area, so eventually the skin builds up a resistance to the offender by creating a hard patch of skin. These are most commonly found on the feet and palms of the hands. If you want to get rid of these particular patches of rough skin, you can purchase a grater-type tool in the beauty supply section of the store. These are specifically made to wear calluses off and work quite effectively. You can also use a tool that works like a large emery board. Both of these tools will wear the callus off.

If your rough skin is a result of extremely dry skin, then you need to take measures to rectify the dryness of your skin. Invest in some high quality and high intensity moisturizers and lotions. The first few times you use these products, it may sting your skin, but just remember that eventually it won't hurt and you'll have smooth skin again. If your situation is more serious, then I advise seeing a dermatologist to determine the best course of action.

Getting rid of rough skin takes time, but is definitely possible. If you simply put in the time, money, and effort, you will succeed in ridding your body of unwanted rough skin, leaving yourself with the smooth, irresistible skin you've always wanted.
