My skin is kinda patchy and unsmooth. What would you recommend for fixing that?

Body - definitely try dry skin brushing. It's amazing how soft it will make your skin, plus it gets the blood circulating to help eliminate toxins! Must use a natural bristle brush (no synthetic ones).

Is it patchy because it's dry? Like I've had problems with dry skin patches before (one particularly on my cheek) and I just use an intense moisturizer and it usually takes care of it in one or two days.

This is what I use in the winter: marykay.com/rcorey2/skincare/moisturization/10548800/10548800/default.aspx

Summer: marykay.com/rcorey2/skincare/moisturization/10549300/10549300/default.aspx

Maybe you should try a light lactic peel if you are not suffering from senstive skin. If really dry then continue hydrating your skin with occlusive products. These all will help with texture and patchy skin.

I have used products with 10% lactic acid in the past and they really do work well to smooth and even out the skin

If your skin is rough and patchy can it be more than just rough dry spots?

I had something like that once and it requried a dermatologist.

Make sure you don't make your condition worse.

Sugar scrubs are also a nice way to slough off dead skin cells. They have some really nice ones at Whole Foods.

Give Larson's Skin Care a try. They make two products, Cracked Skin Cream for more stubborn areas and Heavy Duty Lotion for more regular moisturizing. It has worked great for me. Even better, if you do not like it you can send it back for a full refund!
