Dark elbows and knees is a common beauty concern. Regular exfoliating works on the rest of our body, but dark knees and elbows don’t seem to lighten no matter what. If the stark difference in skin tone on these areas is making you conscious and you have resorted to long-sleeved tops and pants to cover it, worry not, all you need is an effective home-made formula that will do the trick.
Yes, that’s right! We have an easy-peasy DIY lightening pack that will lighten your knees and elbows in an instant. The best part? All the ingredients are readily available in your pantry. So stop waiting and get scrolling…
You will need:
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoon milk
How to make DIY skin lightening pack for dark elbows and knees:
Step 1: In a bowl, add baking soda and milk to form a thick paste. Add more milk if required
Step 2: Now, massage your elbows and knees gently with this paste in circular motions
Step 3: Wash off after some time with plain water and repeat every day until you see visible changes.
Why this works:
Baking soda is a natural exfoliator which gently sloughs off dead skin cells. Milk, on the other hand, is super hydrating; it moisturises the skin and leaves it feeling soft and smooth. The lactic acid in milk also helps lighten the skin tone when applied daily.
