Your elbows and knees experience abuse because of constant friction from leaning and kneeling, which causes the areas to be dark and rough. To score smooth and lightened elbows and knees, check out our tips below.

1. Moisturize the areas first.
To get rid of the dark layer of skin, you need to slather your joints in oil, lotion, or gel to let the surface soften. You may use sunflower oil, olive oil, or aloe vera gel. It is good practice to always moisturize your elbows and knees because dryness makes everything worse.

2. Gently exfoliate.
Anything too abrasive like salts and nutshells will only leave your elbows and knees darker. You can try mixing sugar with coconut oil or baking soda with water to create a natural scrub. Another method you could do is to apply any peeling gel that is safe to use on the face—this guarantees that your skin won't be subject to anything harsh that will worsen the pigmentation.

3. Lighten.
After you've revealed a fresh layer of skin, it's time to make the dark areas bright. Lemon or calamansi juice can naturally lighten your joints. Lulur scrubs are also effective in exfoliating and brightening pigmentations in the body.

Be patient and consistent with the mentioned routine, so you'll achieve stellar results.
