while i was showering and body brushing i noticed one of my elbows is really really dark. What the hell can i do about it? I have tried the sugar and olive oil.Yes made my elbow lovely and smooth but still dark sad Please let me know of a remedy. I go away on holiday in a week!

Why is it dark? Fake tan?

Rub it with half lemons and keep doing it.

Its just pigment and dryness?

OMG I've just been told about this yesterday! Being unable to see my elbows and showering daily I assumed they were as beautiful as everyone else's. Now it turns out they're not sad I have very dry skin on my elbows so don't know if that's anything to do with it but now I'm really embarrassed!

Well my brother has them really bad on both elbows. I had a little look at mine. Did the olive oil and sugar and rubbed the paste in and they look marginally better so going to do again a few times and see if it improves. It is unslightly but its natural!!

Sit with your elbows in half lemons.
