While immersing ourselves in the daily regime of scrubbing, cleansing and moisturising routine, we often tend to undermine what are best termed as problem areas since our focus is mainly the very visible body parts such as hands, face, legs, however seldom do we realise that these trouble making zones which are neglected can more or less become eye sores if not dealt with care.
Areas like the nape of your neck, the elbows, and the knees are often prone to dust accumulation since they are constantly in touch with outer objects and hence become dark and shabby. If you are also among those millions of ladies who struggle hard to get rid of the ugly dead skin and blotches around their knees and elbows, here is all you should know
If negligence has already led to darkening of these problem areas, you better start with fixing the problem as soon as possible. Rubbing slices of lemons is the easiest and the quickest way to lighten the colour of the skin. Rub lemon slices, or apply lemon juice to knees or elbows at least once a day, let it dry for 15 minutes and then wash off.
Another very common condition observed is roughening of skin around these parts as a result of dead cells covering the area. The solution is to exfoliate the areas tenderly using a paste made of gram flour, turmeric and milk, or even a non-soap based cleanser that is gentle on skin
Rough skin and dead pores lead to skin becoming dull and chapped. After you exfoliate the skin parts it is imperative to hydrate them and soften them with a vitamin oil based cream or lotion. Using baby oil or even a combination of milk cream and lime is a great way to keep the skin supple.
Last but not the least, skin care is an indulgent and a continuous process, assuming that the skin is back in shape and leaving it unchecked can lead to re-occurrence of problems, hence ensure that you lend that extra care to it every once in a while.
