Sweating, shaving for those who shave their leg, bad hair removal. All this creates dead cells, as our skin feels attacked and is not properly treated; it defends itself by creating this hyperpigmentation that spoils the complexion. We must also think of our every day actions that can attack our knees’ skin. As when we lean on it by kneeling, this eventually create impacts zones that darken if we repeat it too often.
