It doesn’t matter how much you moisturize if you have a pile up of dead skin on your body. To allow moisture to seep into the skin, light exfoliation is a must. Dry patches on skin can be fixed by using a simple scrub. Mix olive oil and sugar in a bowl and gently apply it to rough patches. Lightly rub the area, then wash off. You can also buy an exfoliator with tiny microbeads.
