Though some slightly-thicker skin on our elbows and knees is needed for protection, it doesn’t take long for thick buildup to become uncomfortable and unsightly. Luckily, no matter how long you’ve been neglecting your elbows and knees you can rid dark patches and scales with some simple exfoliation. Just make a paste of baking soda and a few drops of water, work over your elbows and knees, and rinse!*
For simple cleanup and to maximize ease and effectiveness, consider exfoliating in the shower when your skin is at its softest. When dry, apply a small amount of olive oil to the exfoliated area for a rich and moisturizing after-treatment.
