SKIN OCCLUSION - Lighten Dark Knees, Knuckles and Feet

I have received a ton of mails and calls from clients and blog readers complaining about their dark knees, knuckles, feet or even a combination of all three. After trying all sorts of creams there seem to be no remedy to this and now i have finally decided to do a blog post on this issue so everyone who faces this challenge can finally know how to combat it.

The secret to forcing your skin to obey the rules of the cream you are applying on it is simply called Skin Occlusion. "Onome, please what is Occlusion?" i can hear you asking; well according to my online research;

"Skin occlusion occurs when something, usually a topical medication, is trapped on and, as a result, gets absorbed by your skin. If you have ever applied an antibacterial ointment to a cut, then covered that cut with a bandage, you have used skin occlusion to prevent infection and speed the healing process."

Simply put, occlusion is when you apply a cream, lotion etc on any part of your skin then cover it with any barrier causing material (bandage, plaster, natural butter etc) so the skin underneath doesnt breath. This process traps in hydration into the skin which in turn allows your cream, lotion etc to penetrate better and faster.Top spas use this system during skin therapy to allow the topical treatments penetrate better


There are several ways you can occlude your skin, you can use nylon, cling o film, surgical gloves, socks or even shea/cocoa butters depending on the part of body and extent of damage.


For example if your area of concern is your dark feet or toes, to occlude all you need to do is apply a good lactic acid cream like Amlactin, glycolic cream like Glytone etc then wrap your feet with the cling o film and wear a sock over it. If yours is dark knuckles apply any of these creams then wear a surgical gloves. (If you have really dry dark skin in these areas i also recommend applying shea butter over the aha cream before wearing your occluding material). Leave this on for at least 6 hours or overnight (if your partner won't find it weird). Do this for at least 1 month to see the effect.

So to all my lovely ladies, no need to continue hiding your dark knuckles or dark knees use this method and solve the problem permanently.

Until next post...remain beautiful,

  2. Thanks for the info ma.pls ma,I changed my cream to Otentika and it's fine on my but I noticed eczema around my chest.please ma,what can I use to treat it? Await ur response ma

  3. You are a very intelligent individual!

  4. Appreciate this post. Let me try it out.

  5. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
    I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  6. I am really impressed together with your writing skills as well as
    with the format in your blog. Is this a paid topic or did you
    modify it yourself? Anyway stay up the nice quality writing, it's rare to peer a great blog like
    this one nowadays..

  7. I believe everything published made a bunch of sense.

    But, what about this? what if you added a little information? I am not suggesting your
    content is not solid, but suppose you added something to maybe get folk's attention? I mean "SKIN OCCLUSION - Lighten Dark Knees, Knuckles and Feet" is a
    little boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news
    headlines to grab people interested. You might add a related
    video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about what you've got to say.
    In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
