Dark underarms, knees, and elbows are one of the most common problems no one can avoid. However, these simple yet effective below will help you nourish your skin and remove dark patches.

The cause of dark knees, underarms, elbows and other parts might come from the accumulation of dead skin cells, friction, extensive exposure to sun, or a hormonal imbalance.

A good skin care routine can help lighten dark skin areas, and there is no remedy better than natural ways. Here are some tips to help you lighten your knees, elbows, underarms and wear your favourite clothes with confidence.

1. Papaya and honey

Home Remedy

Papaya contains an enzyme called "papain" that can dissolve the dead skin cellsHoney acts as a natural moisturiser. In combination with papaya, it can work wonders on your skin. Make a paste and apply to your dark skin area. Leave it for 20 minutes and then wash your skin with plain water.

2. Rose water and gram flour

Gram Flour With Rose Water

Rose water is rich in vitamin C, balances pH levels, and because it's a natural anti-inflammatory, it can work to lighten your dark spots. Mix a small amount of rose water, a teaspoon of gram flour, and add a tablespoon of lemon juice together. Apply the mask all over your face and neck and wait until it dries. Rinse with cool water. You can repeat this procedure daily before you take a bath.

3. Potato juice


Potatoes are full of antioxidants and help to even out the skin tone. Grate a potato, squeeze out the juice and apply on the affected area and leave for 30 minutes. Do this every day for a month, and you will notice a considerable difference.
