Skin Whitening For Dark Knees & Dark Elbows
A uniform skin tone adds to your beauty and having dark knees and elbows can detract from your value.
This is a common problem that can make one feel self-conscious about wearing short-sleeved dresses and blouses, as well as skirts and shorts.
The skin around the elbows and knees is usually thicker and has more folds than the surrounding skin.
In addition, because there are no sebaceous glands in these areas, this skin tends to be drier.
Therefore, when proper care and hygiene are not maintained, the skin of the knees and elbows becomes much darker than other parts of your body.
Some other factors that contribute to dark elbows and knees are frequent friction,
overexposure to the sun, genetic factors, dry skin, hormonal imbalance, obesity, accumulation of dead skin and increased melanin pigment.
