We move our elbows constantly, and our elbows have thick skin to make this movement easier. As a result, elbows also become more prone to patchy, rough and dark skin . The buildup of dead skin cells makes the elbow rough and patchy. But, there is an easy solution, with these easy tips to get rid of patchy elbows!
- Use lemon juice
Lemon contains citric acid, known to contain bleaching properties. Applying lemon juice to your elbows can help make the skin lighter. All you need to do is cut a lemon in half and rub it over your elbows. After applying, you need to leave it on for at least 3 hours so that the lemon can act efficiently. Wash it away with warm water and apply moisturizer to avoid dry skin. Repeating this regularly each day will give you the best results as you will see the dark skin begin to fade.
- Scrub your elbows
Elbows appear patchy and rough due to the excess buildup of dead skin cells. Scrubbing is an easy solution because it removes the flakey cells in your elbows making your skin significantly lighter.

Moisturize your elbows after scrubbing to avoid redness and dryness.
