If dark elbows, knees, and knuckles are the only things keeping you from having flawless skin, we can definitely understand your frustration. Online, you can find many ways to get rid of those imperfections, but some of them may be harmful to your skin or not effective at all. Here are some working natural ways to get rid of dark elbows, knees, and fingers.

1. Potato

One of the most surprising ways to eliminate dark patches from your skin is to use the humble potato. Potatoes are rich in catecholase enzymes, which naturally make your skin tone lighter. To use this method, simply squeeze out some potato juice and apply to the dark areas of your skin for 15 minutes before rinsing it off. You can also apply freshly cut potato slices if you don’t have the tools for juice extraction.

2. Sugar

Proper exfoliation is one of the most effective ways to noticeably lighten the skin on your dark patches, but you don’t need a fancy scrub for that. Simply mix a couple of tablespoons of sugar with some olive oil to create a thick paste. In the shower, massage the sugar paste into your dark areas, rinse off, and apply your favourite moisturizer after getting out of the shower.

3. Baking Soda

This common kitchen staple can be successfully used for lightening the skin on your elbows, knees, and knuckles. To take advantage of baking soda, mix two tablespoons of soda with enough milk to create a thick paste. Apply the paste to the dark patches on your body and leave for up to 5 minutes before rinsing off. This treatment can be safely repeated once or twice a week.

4. Coconut Oil

The dark skin on your elbows and knees is also often rough to the touch and maybe more damaged than the skin on your body. That is why using coconut oil, which has famous nourishing and healing abilities, can help you make a difference in your skin colour. Applying coconut oil to the dark areas every day after a shower will give you lighter knees, knuckles, and elbows in a matter of weeks.

5. Green Tea

Next time you are having a delicious cup of green tea, don’t throw out the teabag! The epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, contained in green tea, slows down the process of melatonin accumulation, giving you visibly lighter skin. To lighten your elbows and knees with green tea, simply steep one tea bag in hot water and let it cool. Then swipe the teabag across your dark areas and let it dry naturally. Repeat twice a day for as long as it takes for you to see a difference.

6. Lemon And Honey

Lemon and honey have numerous uses in the world of beauty, and it turns out they can give you lighter knees, elbows, and knuckles as well. To use this method, mix juice squeezed from half of a lemon with two tablespoons of honey. You can also add a teaspoon of baking soda for an even better effect. Mix into a paste and apply to the affected areas for 20 minutes before rinsing off. Apply a moisturizer afterwards.

7. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is one of the best-known natural remedies that can solve all kinds of skin problems, so it’s completely unsurprising that aloe vera can also help you with the dark elbow and knee problem. For this method, you will need freshly extracted aloe vera gel from a plant. Apply the gel to the dark areas on your body and let it sit for 20 minutes before rinsing off. Aloe vera is very good to your skin, which is why you can use this method every day without any side effects.
