My days of being a tom boy are over and now I have black knees and crocodile skin for legs. Anybody have any home remedies? or skin products to use to make my skin moist and healthy looking? Even anything that lightens knee caps.

Coconut Oil is great for mositure and for fading! Plus Coconut oil smells so fresh! The following items help with lightening: Lemon and cusomber juice left on the skin for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water will help turn over the skin cells.
Aloe Vera applied on fresh wounds will help with healing and often leads to less scars.

Steam (shower or steam room), exfoliate (w/ loofah and/or body scrub) and moisturize (use oil while skin is wet). You can use hydroquinone (or natural lightener) for your knees. Visit a skin doctor for suggestions. They often have products you can try.

Buy a body brush. I use mine dry before getting in the shower. Make sure to brush your body all over toward the heart always before showering or baths. Don't ever get the brush wet.
After brushing then you get into the shower or bath and bathe naturally as you always do.
When you get out I use Carol's Daughter body cremes. Now I use to use Olive Oil which worked as well except the Olive Oil leaves some oiliness but Carol's Daughters body cremes do not. The more you can do this process the better.
What you are doing is "exfoliating" dead skin and then remoisturizing the new skin as the old skin sheds.
You'll notice a big difference in even a week. Your skin won't be ashy anymore.
It really works for me. But don't slip back into old habits and stop brushing or stop moisturizing your skin afterwards.
If you make it your purpose to show your body skin love with this process, you will have really beautiful skin.
Brushing tip: You can gently brush as you don't want to abrade the skin.
One more tip: Periodically wash your body brush and let it dry or buy a new one. If you're traveling you can use a loofah mit in the same way. I never wet these type of tools because they don't completely dry and get an odd smell. Dry brushing is the key.
