Hey my loves, A lot of you will know how annoying it is to get dark patches on your knuckles, elbows, knees, and even your underarms. But there are ways that you can brighten the dark pigment here. Some of us are genetically more likely to get darker patches of pigmentation in these areas, and it’s because our skin here is thicker – they build up a dead layer of skin which looks darker than the healthy skin on the surrounding areas.

I swear by this hack with lemon – a natural AHA, which chemically exfoliates your skin, removes dead skin cells, and brightens the area. This DIY is super easy and quick, and all you need is a lemon and a little baking soda. I also highly recommend keeping problem areas hydrated with moisturizer to keep dark patches at bay.
