Dark Knees And Elbows?
Homemade Skin Bleach Tips too
Dark knees and elbows are probably the easiest to treat. With these homemade skin bleach tips and solutions, say goodbye to these dark skin spots.
These are skin folds that constantly rub against clothing we wear and surfaces they get in contact with. Because they are deprived of normal skin oils, the resulting dryness makes it easier for the skin to get darker too.
Dark elbows and knees – How to get rid of them
There are homemade recipes easy to prepare and topical treatments handy to buy.
Take your pick: Homemade skin bleach remedies!
- Mix a paste of 1 tsp Vitamin E, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp glycerine, and 4 Tbsp milk. Massage and leave on dark knees and elbows for 15 minutes before washing off.
- Rub with lime or lemon juice, leave for 10-15 minutes. Soak a towel in hot water and scrub it on dark elbows and knees.
- Mix 1 tsp coconut oil and ½ tsp of lime or lemon juice. Do the same way with the hot towel.
- Right after shower, massage mustard oil on affected area. Rinse off with warm water.
- Another way to use lemon is to cut it into two pieces. Then put each piece on each elbow and leave them on for 15-20 minutes daily (I find this method… uummm… really amusing ).
- Make a paste of besan flour and lime juice and apply on elbows and knees. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and then wash it off.
Dark knees and elbows: How to prevent them
Moisturizing is key to preventing dark elbows and knees.
If you have olive oil in your kitchen, you can use it to massage on these areas before bedtime. Or simply use your favorite lotion twice a day to keep elbows and knees hydrated.
If you have particularly dry skin, Eucerin Lotion is best.
When you exfoliate or scrub your body (my favorite is St. Ives Apricot Scrub once a week), pay special attention to the knees and elbows. But don’t overdo it. Too much friction can cause skin darkening.
