Many a times, you might have noticed that the skin around your knees and elbows are darker than the rest of your body. Also the skin may seem rough and eroded. This is mainly caused because our knees and elbows get rubbed against all sorts of surfaces the most. This causes our skin to break out, accumulate dirt and dead cells are formed.
This kind of area needs special care. A natural remedy to get rid of such dead skin and darkened areas is to use lemons. Lemon acts as natural bleach and with time, mostly within the span of a month, this problem can be solved. All you need is a bit of sugar and lemon. Put the sugar crystals on one half of a lemon and then rub it against the knee or elbow. Do this, till the sugar melts. You should this repeat daily for best results.
