today I want to share some of my favourite home remedies for dark knees, I hope you like it.
When I was young, I don’t know why I get dark knees even I don’t play sports like football , basketball ,etc or even I am not dirty women as such but my friends always force me to use beauty products which is that never work for me, I always think “why I have got dark knees?” then I came to know that because I literally travel all around the house with knees I mean I kneeling and rubbing my knees towards the ground that why I grow up I have dark knees, But this is a long time ago now I don’t have this problem because I have try many natural treatments.
why some people have dark knees and other don’t have
- Proper skin care: hands and feet instead of other body parts. Lack of personal care, washing, scrubbing and moisturization can cause our skin to build the dead skin cells which further cause skin darkening.
- Kneeling your knees: This meant to be one of the biggest cause of skin darkening around your knees, continuously kneeling or rubbing your knees towards the hard surface or object makes them rough which leads to dark knees.
- Sun exposure: Sun exposure not only darken our skin but also develop age spots and its only happen if you wear short clothes and forget to apply any sun block. UV sun rays can multiply the production of melanin on the skin which is the main cause of dark knees, so try to wear sunscreen every time you expose your body towards the sun and repeat the procedure after every 3 to 4 hours.
- Frequent Friction: A latest report proof that our dedicated skin of knees and elbows may get dark due to the rough fabric we wear. surprisingly when you wear a rough fabric your skin constantly rub opposed to that, so that’s why we face dark knees earlier.
- Dryness: Did you know that our knees have fewer oil glands, so they need more care than other parts of your body because they become dry easily so enough moisturization should be provided to it if you don’t give attention to them then in result the skin of knees become darker.
- Genetics: Sometimes genes also play an important role in getting dark knees because people who born with dark skin tone will definitely have dark knees it’s in their genes and you can’t change your genes.
- Dirt: Try to cover your knees and elbows because they engage more dirt towards them which cause build up of dead skin which further leads to darker skin.
- Medical conditions: There are also some medical issues which cause skin darkening, some pregnant women may face dark knees due to some changes in their hormones, by having these changes they notice dark skin anywhere on the body but mostly experience them on their knees or elbows. certain medicines are also responsible for darker knees especially the medicine tetracycline which is an anti-biotic mostly used for the acne treatment can also cause darker knees.
- Dark skin is as commonly known as hyperpigmentation, we mainly get our skin color due to a specific cell melanocytes and the latest studies shows that everyone have the same number of melanocytes in their skin tissue, the difference is in their size the larger they are the darker skin you get.
- When you notice some change in your color its mean your body overproducing the cell melanin which is responsible for your skin color. At the first stage, you notice some brown or dark patches on the knee area then slowly it getting more darker. UV rays give a signal to our skin to overproduce the cell melanin, so try to keep your skin away from the sun.
