Knees and Elbows become dark because of dead skin cells. To get rid of these dead skin cells, you need ingredients that exfoliate and/or bleach dark skin Naturally.
After trying out these recipes, It is very important to MOISTURISE. Any moisturiser will work but I recommend cocoa butter or rub some olive oil on knees/elbows for better results. If you don't moisturise them then they will become darker.
1) You Need:
Mix enough milk to make baking soda a little damp. Apply the paste on knees or elbows and scrub it in circular motions. Repeat this until you notice, your knees have became lighter and when you are happy with it. I used to skip a day before doing it again.
2) You Need:
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Olive Oil
3) You Need:
4) You Need: (I tried this one and it worked for me pretty well)
5) You Need:
Anything that exfoliates your body (loofah, exfoliating brush etc...)
6) You Need:
Really amazing moisturiser or cocoa butter or Shea butter
7) You Need:
Knees/elbows are most exposed in sun during summer. No doubt they will become dark if exposed without sunscreen lotion applied. You can use sunscreen lotion as a moisturiser and to lighten dark knees/elbows after shower.
8) You Need:
Aloe Vera Gel
One of the tricks I used:
Take two strips of cloth that are wide enough to cover your knees/elbows and some olive oil. Apply olive oil on knees/elbows and massage it for 2 mins. Tie 2 strips of cloths around knees to keep the moisture in and leave them over night. In the morning, scrub your knees/elbows with loofah and wash off the oil in the shower. Moisturise your knees/elbows after shower and Repeat until you see results.
Hope it works for you guys. Take Care.
