Hello,
Friction and dryness can cause the elbows to darken so apply moisturiser twice a day and retinoic acid based cream at night to exfoliate the area for 4 weeks.

Mix rose water glycerine and lemom juice shake it well and apply repeatedly over the affected area. It acts as moisturiser and lemon juice helps clear the darkness.
