Can you please help me how 2 get rid of dark neck? I'm havin trubles since a year

Having dark skin only in the neck area is not an uncommon occurrence, as a large number of individuals experience it. The main reason for this condition is because we very frequently tend to neglect this area when washing other parts of the body. People generally do not pay much heed to the importance of exfoliating dead skin cells in this region, as a result of which sweat and dirt builds up, giving the skin a darker than normal appearance. In addition, prolonged sun exposure could also lead to the darkening of one’s skin, particularly if we ignore this area when applying a sunscreen. Dark skin around the neck could also be a result of an allergic reaction to certain kinds of jewelry. Imitation jewelry can very often lead to the darkening of skin, especially if one is allergic to it.

Here are a few home remedies that you could implement to restore your original skin tone. Lemon juice is considered to be one of the best remedies for treating this condition, as it acts as a natural bleaching agent. Take a teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice and apply it on the skin for 15-20 minutes, after which rinse it off with cold water. This should be done on a daily basis till you notice visible results. Cucumber juice is also excellent when it comes to treating dark skin. Mix a teaspoon each of cucumber juice and lemon juice and then apply the mixture on the affected area. After about 20 minutes, rinse it off with lukewarm water. You could also apply plain cucumber juice to the area, it will work as well.

You could also use potatoes to lighten the skin on your neck. Take a medium sized potato and blend it. Now squeeze the juice out of the vegetable’s pulp and apply it on the neck area with the help of a cotton ball. Let it stay on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Take two teaspoons of gram flour and add a teaspoon of milk, so as to make a thick paste. Apply this paste on the neck and let it dry naturally. On drying, gently scrape the paste off, with the help of moistened fingertips. This remedy if done consistently on a daily basis will not only help in lightening the skin around your neck, but it will give it a healthy glow as well.
