Ok, this is one that really confuses me and wondering if anyone can help...

What is this thing with "alligator" looking legs or skin?

I have seen this, the skin looks like it is cracked and some what peeling? Peeling not from burning, just major dryness...
It seems that using all different types of lotions have not worked....

Any advise?

Try a salt scrub a few times back to back, and some Moisturer after shower.

It sounds like you are drying out really bad, don't tan everyday, make sure you use a good salon tanning lotion, moisturize after every shower, and don't use bar soap it helps dry you out. Use a body wash. Drink lots of water.

I found out a long time ago that lamps high in uvb will do that to me.I stay away from hi uvb lamps.They are just too harsh & chew my skin up.

I would not exfoliate with a harsh scrub at this point. Your best bet would be give your skin a break. And definietly use a good moisturizer . Any moisturizer designed for a tanner is good: Angel, X Endurance, Total Immersion, Swedish Beauty (smells like Aqua Di Gia), Australian Gold Tan Extender. I would moisturize like 3 times a day too!
My skin got that way when I was using a sunless spray booth once a week. I just had to give my skin a break. They say you should only do sunless once a week for five weeks then stop and let it fade totally before starting again.

I would first check what kind of lotion they are using if any and what they also use in the shower. make sure it does not contain mineral oil and regular bar soap is very drying as well. I would also reccomend a nice sea salt to moisturize as well. Kava Kava has a great watermelon smelling one and arbonne international makes awesome sea salts as well. You need to get that dead skin off of and replenish the moisture.
