Since the quarantine began, at-home workouts have seen a rise in popularity. However, all those planks and pushups you do can cause your elbows and knees to become dark and chafed, especially if you don't use a ~thick~ yoga mat. These might make you feel dyahe to wear tank tops and shorts, but don't worry, we've got your back! Check out some of the skincare products you can use to even out the discoloration in those areas. Spoiler: They're all below P500!

This green papaya-infused body lotion from Silka can soften your skin, even out discoloration, and protect you from the harsh rays of the sun (which is still a *must* even if you're just at home). Plus, it smells ~heavenly~, too!
