I get the same problem in winter.  If it is really bad I rub vaseline (petroleum jelly) on my elbows at night after a shower and cover with a tight cotton long sleeved top.  In the morning I rinse off in the shower, I do it for a few nights and they are less dry.

One of my friends gets dark patches on her elbows and she does the lemon/salt scrub.  She adds lemon to some salt and rubs away the dry skin then she takes lemon wedges and puts her elbows on them for around 10 minutes each. Never tried it myself but she says it works!

Oh I have this too! I will have to second the vasline trick. It doesn’t take away the discolouration but it at least makes them smoother and not quite as ashy (which is sometimes a problem for me too)

Oh, I know how to fix this, I used it and it totally  works realy awesome.  I used to have rough, cracked, and dark elbows.  I used Proactive scrubbing solution.  It didn’t work for my face, but the rough cleanser also bleaches skin.  Then I would apply a generous amount of Goldbond hand cream.  Sometimes I would wrap them with some gauze just to keep the cream from getting on my cloths or bed.  In a few days, nice smooth skin.

@tksjewelry: That really worked?  I see all the commercials for Proactiv but I don’t want to buy the whole shebang, I wonder if we can just buy the srubbing solution?  Anyone know?
