When someone talks about how to take care of skin the right way, many will point attention to the hard-to-treat ones such as the knee and elbow areas. However, it’s the body's nature to have different skin textures. Uneven skin tone brings so much concern and often misleads unhealthy skin when in fact, there are just really certain spots to focus on.
Melanin is the pigment that gives our skin tone. And every color is beautiful! Dark knees and elbows happen when the skin makes or has excess melanin. And some experience extreme dryness in these areas too. The below are the quick tips to apply on how to treat it.
Cleanse properly - Using your favorite cleanser/body soap, cleanse your elbows/knees with a tiny extra effort than the rest of the body. This is to ensure that the specks of dirt and impurities will be washed off.
2. Exfoliate and Rejuvenate - Using a natural or commercial body scrub, exfoliate the areas 3 to 4 times a week. This is to remove the dead skin and give room to the healthy one. And surprisingly, you can always use a rejuvenating mask such as a black and green mask as well as a hydrating gel-like bubble mask to soothe your skin and preserve its natural oil.
3. Moisturize- Especially when these areas are suffering from dryness, you really need to moisturize. Choose the gentlest lotion/body cream as much as possible and opt for natural/vegan products such as Matykos Beauty to avoid skin irritation and other adverse reactions.
