Hi

Anyone got any advice about how to get rid/lighten these?

If you get what I mean: my elbows are black (jet black, charcoal) compared to the rest of my arm. It's coming up to summer and with halter dresses I don't want those hideous elbows showing out like they do!

Any ideas?

Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate, buy a loofah and scrub brush, make sure you get those elbows and knees. Alpha Hydroxy based lotions also help remove the dead skin.

Buy some razors and occasional shave your knees.

Try the bolded, then use a lightener like Nadinola. Use sun protection, and try to avoid putting pressure on the elbows against hard surfaces.

Good Luck

Instead of the loofah sponge, use the Korean Italy exfoliating cloth/towel.  That sucker scrubs.  I thought the Salux cloth scrubs but it is no match to the Korean Italy cloth.

I'll try some Thumbs Up but generally anti skin lightening creams etc Thumbs Down but needs must Disapprove!
