Dark Skin Treatment

What causes dark skin and dark elbows

Dark skin color or wheatish skin is common in areas such as in India and sub-continental regions. So one can not change the skin color but one can increase the glow and tone of the skin and also loosen the toxins from it.

For the start one has to follow three basic steps for dark skin treatment and for dark elbow. This includes massage, steaming and scrubbing of the skin.
Home Remedies for dark Skin and dark Elbow

Massage - Massage is very important in loosening of the toxins and thus it brings dead cells into circulation which is stagnant at that area. Massage for 15min by moving your finger in clockwise direction. The essential things which are used for massage, differ from person to person depending upon the texture of the skin (dry, oily or normal texture).

Treatment for dry skin texture

Things which can be used for massage are jasmine, orange, rose and sandalwood water along with oil of carrot seeds and avocado.
Treatment for thick oily skin

Cedar, musk and cinnamon extract in mustard, olive and almond oil.
Dark skin treatment for normal skin with dark pigmentation

Rosewood, sandalwood, jasmine and rose oil can be used with coconut, sunflower oil and sesame oil.

Steaming - Massage your skin for at least 15-20min every day. After you have finished with massage you should have warm compresses or steam with essential medicinal substances like lavender, lemon peel, ginger mint or bay-leaf. This procedure of steaming the skin helps to open the pores and allows the essential oils to enter and nourish the skin, thus improving the glow and tone of the skin.

Scrubbing - After massage and steaming the skin scrubbing is to be done. This is to remove the dead skin from the outer layer of the skin thus allowing the healthy skin regeneration. Scrubbing can be done with herbals, oat flour, powdered almonds, basil leaves powder, rose petals, sandalwood and coriander seeds for 15 min.
After scrubbing is done a skin pack made by following method, should be applied. Beat the white of an egg and spread out as a thin film on your face. Rinse off after 30min. This mask lightens the skin and irons out the wrinkles and thus helps in regaining the glow and skin color.
