Most of the time when we think of skin care, we don’t remember the elbows and knees. The derma of elbows and knees are by large measure devoid of oil glands. This is why they get dry so fast. Without proper care elbows and knees develop a dark appearance and a rough layer of skin covers them. This is unsightly, especially as the summer months loom ever closer and these areas will be exposed for all to see.
Causes of dark, rough elbows and knees include constant exposure to the sun without protective sunscreen or coverings, side effects from the use of some types of medications, certain diseases and disorders, and constantly leaning on the elbows or kneeling without protective clothing. One of the causes of rough, dark skin on the elbows and knees is due to improper hygiene and and care. OROGOLD Products can offer some tips on how to keep all areas of your body smooth, soft, and looking beautiful.
How to take care of elbows and knees

- Use a good moisturizing lotion or cream–like the OROGOLD skin care moisturizers–to moisturize the elbows and knees every day. Try rubbing some coconut or olive oil on them after a shower or bath to keep them soft and smooth.
