A common problem many of us suffer from (some without realising) are dark elbows. This usually happens due to dead skin cells and sun exposure. If you’re wanting to lighten your elbows, then we’re here to help!
The most popular natural treatment for dark elbows is treating them with lemon juice. The citric acid in lemon juice is a natural bleaching agent, helping to lighten the skin tone. It’s a simple treatment too. All you have to do is cut a large lemon in half, squeeze a bit of the juice to help make two hollow lemon halves. Rub the lemon cups over your elbows and then allow the lemon juice to act for 3 hours. Wash off the juice with warm water and then moisturise, as lemon juice is drying. If you repeat this daily, you should see a massive difference within 3 weeks.
