Hi, it's Pearl Dworkin, and I'm here today to tell you some tips on how to lighten dark elbows. So there's a couple of things you can do. There's at home remedies and I'm going to show you one right now. So this is going to be using a lemon. I cut it in half. Lemons have natural citric acid. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to squeeze out the juice and you can save that for a recipe that you might make. So we squeeze out the juice and then what I'm going to do is I'm going to apply turmeric. Turmeric has an active ingredient in it called curcumin which is very brightening for the skin. So we're going to sprinkle the curcumin and then what we're going to do is we're going to apply it to the elbows. You can do this about three or four days a week. The citric acid from the lemon is very brightening as well as the turmeric. Exfoliation is key as well as using the right kind of brightener. You don't want to do anything that's going to cause inflammation to the skin since inflammation can lead to darker areas and darker pigmentation. So you want to be gentle with your skin, use gentle products and don't over exfoliate.
