I am facing a problem of dark knuckles on my hands, secondly my feet have become very dark, thirdly a very serious issue of dark underarms. I have tried bleaching, but it didn't help.

This condition is called acanthosis nigricans and arises from endocrinal unbalance. hyperinsulinemia causes dark patches.

This can progress to diabetes or PCOS. Home remedies include:

  1. soak 1 tsp fenugreek seeds in a cup of water. take this water next morning empty stomach. seeds you can throw.
  2. 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder with 1 tsp honey, licked in the beginning of meal.
  3. Bitter gourd and bitter melon, increase in diet.
  4. Reduce soft carbs, refined floors, bakery products, cookies, sweets, dairy, soya, sunflower and safflower oils, iodized salt.
  5. To restore metabolism, walk 3-5 km every morning or go for swimming. Yoga can also be started if you are serious with lifestyle modifications.

Lemon and tomato have natural bleaching properties. Apply them on the problem areas every day and see the difference.
