Why does the skin on your legs turn white when rubbing them with nails?

. 1 min read

Skin “turning white while rubbing” indicates extremely dry skin. Daily moisturization with a medicated moisturiser (preferably prescribed by a dermatologist) is important in such people in all seasons. Avoid bathing with excessively hot water / avoid sauna. Use detergent free body washes and handle your skin gently, avoid rubbing.
