Friday's Beauty Moment ● Our Favorite Natural Home Remedies

Did you know that your elbows and knees are two of the most often neglected parts of the body?  Dark and discolored patches are embarrassing and we are here to provide you with our favorite home remedies for improving the appearance of your elbows and knees:

• Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice on a cotton ball and dab gently on your knees.  You can also place your elbows inside these lemon halves and leave for 15 minutes and then scrub gently before wiping with a warm cloth.
• Apply coconut oil to your elbows and knees one-hour prior to showering or bathing.  Alternatively, you can make an oatmeal scrub and exfoliate your knees and elbows while enjoying a hot shower.
• Slice a cucumber {a natural bleaching agent} and rub on your knees and elbows and allow it to set for 30 minutes.
• Apply honey to the darkened skin approximately 20 minutes before taking a shower as this may help in moisturizing and softening the skin.  Please invest in a quality skin moisturizer {I love Organic Shea Cream, Coconut Oil or Cocoa Butter}.

Since warm weather is in our immediate future and so is the temptation to rock minis and sleeves gowns, we must take the necessary time daily to nurture and promote radiant skin. It may take a while before these remedies start to take effect, but if you continue with the regiment as directed, you will see improvement in those affected areas.

Drink plenty of water to replenish and hydrate your skin and apply sunscreen before heading outdoors because sun exposure will cause the areas to become dark again. Take care of yourself and do not forget to treat yourself to something special this weekend!
