Do you want to learn how to get rid of dark elbows? Have you been hiding your arms, wearing long-sleeve shirts and sweaters to avoid showing your elbows? Do you want to enjoy tank tops again? There are some things you can try at home that may work. The best part is that you probably already have everything you need!

In your attempt to get rid of dark elbows, you should consider home remedies. If, however, you find that they do not work or that you need something stronger, there are some commercial treatments you can consider. If you decide to use a commercial skin treatment, do your research and try the product you feel is the best fit for you.

Here are some things to try at home:
Cut a lemon in half. Rub the halves on your elbows. Leave this on for at least 5-10 minutes. Rinse. If you want the lemon to be a bit juicier, you can roll it back and forth on a counter top prior to cutting. If the lemon irritates your skin, do not proceed with this treatment.

Bring a pumice stone with you into the shower. Gently scrub the area on your elbows that you wish to improve. If you don't have a pumice stone or you feel it is too rough, you can use a loofah. Though a loofah may not be effective as quickly. Dark elbows are generally caused by dead, hardened skin. To get rid of dark elbows, you need to prevent the build up of this dead skin. Do not scrub so hard as to break the skin.

Moisturize your elbows several times a day. Be sure to slather them with lotion before bedtime.

Do not lean on your elbows at the table or your desk.

Drink a lot of water. Water is great for your skin.

Follow these tips to get rid of dark elbows for several weeks. Once you achieve the desired result, continue moisturizing and drinking water. Barbara Neitzel
