Darkened knees and elbows is a common problem for many of us. They do not seem to go easily and can make your hands and legs look really odd if you decide to don a stylish dress with a leg slit or short sleeves.
They can ruin your appearance all together even in a beach or swimming wear, or if you decide to wear shorts. Wearing dresses that keeps your knees and elbows covered all the time is not really a feasible solution, so opting for a real solution for this problem is important.
The skin on the elbows and the knees are thicker than the skin of the other areas of the body and they tend to get dry and flakey even if you otherwise have an oily skin.
The skin of these areas needs special care that can be provided only by treating them with creams that are specifically formulated for the purpose. Some most effective knee and elbow lightening creams that are currently available in India have been listed below
