Backs of the legs There are two unfortunate things that make this spot "special": dry, bumpy skin (similar to keratosis pilaris on the backs of the arms) and cellulite. If the area is extremely dry, choose a rich body cream that contains shea butter, which is an incredible natural moisturizer. If it's dry and bumpy, use a cream with lactic acid to speed up exfoliation.
If cellulite is your main concern, look for products that contain caffeine -- it will give you an immediate tightening, says Baumann. Even though body products can't get rid of cellulite completely, your skin will appear smoother.
