I find using a body brush or loofa in the shower and VIGOROUSLY applying moisturizer afterwards really improves the texture and appearance of skin. I am 50 and have had three children so my belly is not the prettiest bit of flesh, but at least it is well moisturized! To give skin the best chance of reshaping it needs to have a good supply of blood, and massaging cream in regularly seems to help mine.
