Q: What can we do when moisturizer alone won't make scaly skin go away? A: When you have scaly skin on your body, Kavar says the only way to heal it is to do a combination of gentle exfoliation and moisturizing. There are two options when it comes to exfoliation: you can use a physical exfoliant like a gentle microbead scrub (try Yes to Grapefruit Exfoliating Body Wash, $9.99) or a skin care brush like Clarisonic Skin Care Brush, $195. Then, there's the option of using a moisturizer that contains a chemical exfoliant like glycolic or lactic acid (try Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer, $45). If your skin is very sensitive, you'll want to avoid a chemical exfoliant as it may sting.
