How can I get rid of dark elbows and knees?
Hello, I am 18 years old. I have extremely dark knees and elbows. I am worried about what if it is a symptom of bad health. Please tell me why do I have dark elbows and knees. Is it common? What can I do to get rid of dark elbows and knees?
@dina Hello, dark skin can be caused by various reasons like an accumulation of dead skin cells, hyperpigmentation caused by the sun, birth control pills, certain conditions like eczema or psoriasis. You can try these home remedies like aloe vera, baking soda, citrus fruits, you can apply the mixture of oatmeal and yogurt, turmeric, other than that you can maintain it by regularly exfoliating and moisturizing. If home remedies and healthy skincare practices don’t seem to do the trick for your dark elbows, you might need something stronger to address the underlying hyperpigmentation. You can try over-the-counter medicine prescribed by doctors.
