It may seem silly, but darkened skin on your knees and elbows is certainly something that many people deal with. Everyone strives to achieve an even skin tone and the thicker skin on your knees and elbows can distract from that and break the even canvas of your skin. Because the area of skin on your knees and elbows also doesn’t have any oil glands, the skin there can get dry and flake faster which also leads it to being thicker and darker in color.

What is there to do then, other than to cover up your knees and elbows every time you go out? There are some home remedies for lightening the skin on your joints that are sure to be easy to try out and inexpensive as well. Check out some of the below methods that are both natural and tried by hundreds of other people, found to be effective in remedying dark elbow and knee patches.
