Living in Phoenix, Arizona, the air is dry all year round.  We don’t experience humidity like many other areas do.  Caring for my skin living in the Sonoran Desert  is an ongoing battle.  And it’s not just my face and skin that is exposed to the air like my elbows and knees.  Even the bottom of my feet are rough and extremely dry.  I practically live in yoga pants and you can hear the rough skin on my feet scrape against the pants as I tug at the fabric because it catches on the bottom of my feet.  serious; you can hear the scratching in the next room.  It’s unbelievably disgusting and embarrassing.  My elbows and feet scrape the bedsheets at night and I know my husband lays there cringing.

I have scraped the bottom of my feet with files and used harsh products but that leads to ongoing redness and sensitivity.  Within a week, the dry and scaly skin is back anyhow.   I knew I needed an ongoing treatment but didn’t know what that should be.  When I was asked to try AmLactin and learned more about their product line and the skin issues it can help solve, the AmLactin Alpha-Hydroxy Therapy Foot Cream seemed to be an ideal solution.  I thought the product was just another standard moisturizer and had not previously tried it.  I was completely unaware of how different the AmLactin formulas are compared to other moisturizers on the market.


The foot cream is recommended to use twice daily and no prescription is needed.  My feet, which you can see were really bad, began to show improvement in a week.  (I know the picture is hideous but this is the reality of living in a desert climate).  After two weeks, my feet were significantly better!  I keep the product on my nightstand and apply it before I go to sleep and after showering in the morning.  Don’t my feet look amazing considering what they looked like a couple weeks before I started using the AmLactin Foot Cream?

Also, I wanted to try a product on my elbows to see if it could help improve the texture of my skin.   There is a specific product I found that is recommended for extremely dry skin areas.  The AmLactin Alpha-Hydroxy Therapy Ultra Hydrating Body Cream. can help with this issue!  It’s a very thick formula that is designed for elbows and feet.  After about a week, I began to notice a huge improvement with my elbows and I felt really good about the change.


Everyone in my house has different challenges with their skin.  For my husband, it’s his hands.  For my teenage boys, it’s their hands and elbows!  Whatever your problem dry and rough areas are, AmLactin has an entire range of products to choose from in various sizes so you can even find products that will fit in your purse or pocket.  There are creams specifically for arms and legs, some provide more intense moisture and others are to help repair the skin.  Everything is fragrance free and non-greasy.  If it’s not something you have tried for rough, extremely skin,  it’s definitely time to do so.  As the air gets colder and drier with winter approaching, you may be able to avoid certain problems and extremely dry skin that you have dealt with in the past.

A few important tips and precautions to keep in mind when using AmLactin Skin Care to resolve your extremely dry skin:

  •  It is not for use on your face
  • It is not intended for young children.  It is recommended you consult with a pediatrician before using any AmLactin Skin Care products on children.
  • The products may sting if you apply them after shaving or an area where you have a cut.  The stinging should stop but if not, you should stop using the product.
  • Because AmLactin Skin Care contains alpha-hydroxy acid, that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to sunburn.  Always use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterward.
  • The products are for external use only and should be kept out of the reach of children.  Keep the products away from your eyes.

    1. I’m not sure exactly when the line came to be, I’d have to look, but they have been around for years. I remember seeing dermatologists back when I lived in California who recommended it.

  1. Ugh! I will have to try this. NorCal is so terribly dry too. I lived on the coast in Santa Cruz prior to moving to the East Bay. Being in a constant drought, unless you live right by the ocean your skin pays! I’ve been in this spot for almost 5 years now and my skin has never adjusted, even my scalp has suffered. 🙁 My feet are certainly a topic at any pedi appointment 😉 and it doesn’t help that I’ve spent years in flip flops on sand… It doesn’t matter how many humidifiers I use…etc. etc. The dry air is very tough on our skin!

    1. LOL – I always wonder if they are talking about my feet when I go in for a pedi? And I live in flip flops in Arizona so that makes it really bad too. I’ve actually had them so bad before I wouldn’t even go in for a pedi (too ashamed). The AmLactin really helped. You can see in 2 weeks, it made a difference for me and I only lightly scrubbed my feet in the shower. It’s a been a little longer now and they are even better.

    1. That was my problem too, the feet. I was a bit embarrassed to post the before photo but living in Phoenix is like living in an oven. And then winter is super dry here. The foot cream worked so nice!
