Lightening The Knees, Elbows, and Feet!

            Hyperpigmentation is arguably one of the most bothersome skin concerns.  It is a very common obstacle on the path to glowing, even skin. Hyperpigmentation on select areas such as the feet, toes, and elbows can be especially stubborn.

            Hyperpigmentation is the overproduction of melanin in the skin. It can cause some parts of the skin to appear darker and uneven. It is especially common for people with darker skin tones. This phenomenon tends to be more common in places such as the elbows, knees, and feet. The most common causes of hyperpigmentation are constant friction on the skin, certain health conditions, and prolonged exposure to sunlight. Because of these factors, hyperpigmentation treatment can seem quite daunting.


            To properly lessen the appearance of hyperpigmentation, a solid skincare routine must be set into place. First, use a quality body soap and exfoliator to properly cleanse and prep the skin. After cleansing, apply an effective lightening treatment to the body, specifically your target areas such as the knees and feet. This will help simultaneously moisturize the skin, as well as lessen the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Afterwards, be sure to avoid prolonged sun exposure and use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to block harmful UV rays that may worsen your hyperpigmentation.

            Ultimately, hyperpigmentation on stubborn areas can be drastically lessened. If a skin care routine is used each day, you should begin to see results within two weeks. Glowing, even-toned skin can be achieved through quality skin care products and consistency.
