What’s up??? Enjoying wintery mornings??? The cold breeze??? I am loving it. It’s my favorite season after all…!!! I am the happiest when winter is around.
I have been writing a lot about winter care and products we need in order to protect skin from cold breeze. Today I am going to write about skin concern which is not seasonal, which is almost same through out the year – dark knees and elbows.
Haven’t you seen pretty stylish girls with dark and very dry elbows and darker(as compared to their skin tone)knees. Elbows are still get unnoticed. But, when you wear short attire, dark knees are something which everyone notice. With Christmas and New Year around the corner, we gals are excited to shop and flaunt some western outfits. Hence, taking a good care of knees should be in our list to look perfect in this party season.
So, to ease this process I have some home remedies which will nourish and lighten your elbows and knees naturally. Shall we start???
As I mention in all most every dry skin care post, exfoliation is the key. By exfoliating dry skin, you can rub off the dry skin layer. This leaves skin soft and smooth.
For exfoliation, you can either opt for some good exfoliator from market, or you can find one in your kitchen. To name a few,
- Sugar and coconut oil scrub.
- Coffee, sugar and honey scrub.
- You can even get a body brush and try dry brushing.
Applying below natural bleaching agents and washing them after fifteen to twenty minutes is proved to lighten knees and elbows.
- Lemon juice
- Potato juice
- Aloe Vera gel
- Baking Soda
- Cucumber Juice
- Fuller Earth(Multani Mitti)
You can also try below oils on elbows and knees to achieve desired results.
- Coconut Oil
- Mustard Oil
- Almond Oil
This is must in order to avoid skin from getting dry. Do not forget to add the moisture by applying a good body lotion twice a day to avoid dry or dark patches.
I hope you try these remedies at home and get the amazing results. 😉
I will share some outfit ideas for this Party season soon…!!!
