How to lighten dark knees and elbows


Dead skin formation on our elbows and knees, and the friction it is subjected to day in and day out, causes them to become dry, rough, and dark. With dark, ugly elbows and knees, few women have the courage to sport short skirts and sleeveless tops.

If you too are conscious about your knees and elbows and wish you could make them perfect again, here’s help:

  • Mix together, organic turmeric powder, raw honey, and raw milk in a bowl till it forms a smooth paste. Massage the paste onto your knees and elbows and leave it on for 20 minutes. Once the pack is dry, rinse with cool water. Turmeric will heal your skin, milk will bleach it and honey will moisturize it so it regains its health. Perfect combination we say.
  • Mix extra virgin olive oil and sugar and massage the mixture on the darkened skin. The sugar will gently slough of the dead skin cells, while the olive oil will restore your skin’s moisture content, leaving your knees and elbows smoother than ever before.
  • Mix gram flour, lemon juice, and rose water together in a bowl to form a smooth paste. Apply a generous layer of this paste on darkened skin and leave it on for 15 minutes or till completely dry. Rinse with lukewarm water and follow it up with a moisturizer. Gram flour exfoliates skin without irritating it, lemon naturally bleaches your skin, and rose water will help soothe the skin. Together they will render smoother, brighter knees, and elbows.
