Many people of all skin tones want to lighten these areas because they begin to darken over time, sometimes due to having an active childhood, constant friction, scars, skin conditions such as eczema, etc.  These are generally not areas that can be lightened overnight but with the right concentrated formula that is geared towards these areas specifically, it can be done.

Skin Care Regimen for Lightening Hard to Lighten Areas of the Body

Here's a regimen that can be used to lighten the knees, elbows, toes, and any other hard to lighten areas of the body.  Do this twice daily and you will get rid of any hyperpigmentation on these areas in the fastest time possible.

1. Exfoliate using a rough weave exfoliating cloth and kojic acid bar.  Wet the exfoliating cloth, rub the kojic soap bar against it and use it to gently scrub the area that is hyper pigmented and that you want to lighten.

2. Pat dry.

3. Apply a concentrated skin lightening creme for the body to these areas.  If the formula is concentrated you'll only need just enough to cover.

4. In the day, make sure to either keep the areas covered with clothing or shoes, or use a physical sunscreen on the area to make sure that it doesn't tan.

This regimen should be done twice daily, but in the PM no sunscreen or sun protection is necessary.
