How to Lighten Dark Knees and Elbows Naturally


Are you tired of dealing with hyperpigmentation on your toes, knees, or shoulders? Hyperpigmentation does not just affect the face, but if often affects the skin around your joints, such as the elbows and knees. Over time, the skin around the joints can darken.

Years of dealing with bumps, bruises, nicks, and scrapes can make your elbows and knees from their pads. The good news is that you can easily smooth out those dry, scaly patches. If you want to brighten the skin in these areas, you will find a great solution right in your kitchen.


Mix 1 tbsp of coconut oil (olive oil) and 1 tbsp brown sugar (white sugar). The grainy property of the sugar makes it work as a gentle exfoliant to remove dead skin cells.

Next, apply this mixture into your elbows and knees, then gently rub for 3-5 minutes and rinse them off.

Next step is to apply the mixture of baking soda and milk.

Mix 1 tbsp baking soda and 1 tbsp of raw milk. Apply this to your elbows and knees.

Let it sit for 5-10 minutes ( or until it dries up), then wash it off completely.

The last thing to do is to apply your favorite moisturizer or body lotion in an upward direction.

Do these 3 steps routine onto your dark elbows and knees every day to see a significant difference in few weeks time.
