Is this the right thread for skin care routines? No matter what I try my skin feels like that of a 1.000 year old pachyderm, so rough to the touch and no color.

I'm using a pumice stone twice a week and applying body cream daily. It got rid of strawberry skin and razor burns due to close shaving, but other than that I feel my skin is very rough. Then when I wear pantyhose, it only hides some imperfections, and I am of the idea that the main goal of wearing pantyhose is to enhance the look of one's legs not just hiding bad skin.

Any help would be very welcome.

Now it is 😉
If you find out, let us know.
My legs, as sexy as they are are drying out. Comes with old age I guess.

Tell me about it. I have some horrible stretch marks in my hip area.
As of a general recommendation, look for oils (I prefer oil mixes) containing retinoids, and creams containing Centella asiatica. You can also try Centella supplements. The rest is usual: niacinamide, hyaluronic acid.

But, of course, giving such recommendations blindly is dangerous, and I can base my opinion only on my own experience (and some scientific articles).

Thank you!

More often than not I get referred to a dermatologist (and for good reason 😉), but I just wish there were some sort of off-the-shelf product that kickstarts my skin care journey. I know these kind of products have a very low percent of 'active ingredients' so the results are small and only achievable long-term, which I'm okay with.
What really helped my skin to look & feel much better is this oil:




Highly concentrated dry body oil combines a next-generation anti-ageing retinoid complex (1%), vitamins C and E skin-enhancing Amazonian oils and deep-sea red algae to target scars, stretch marks, cellulite dehydrated areas, surface irregularities and discoloration.

Directions: Apply daily on body areas. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to our website for an in-depth guide to patch testing. Keep out of reach of children.
🤩 Thank you! I just looked for it online and it's available at a local store, yay.

Wow! I bought the last 3 in a discount outlet in Germany, and looks like they are not produced anymore. Since then, they changed the company name twice. We buy a lot of stuff from them directly, but they do not have such oil.

They are called now, but online shopping is allowed at
