    Question Dark neck skin problem

    I really don't care much about looks/fashion, but this seems like a serious skin problem to me.

    Ever since I was about 17, I have noticed that my elbows/knees turned black as well as the back of my neck. After scrubbing/cleaning my elbows and knees better for a while, that problem got solved, but my neck isn't getting any better. Any solutions? I've tried a lot of things my mother has suggested and nothing has worked in over a year. I've tried milk/lemon juice/turmeric mixture, special soaps, etc.

    Thanks!

    Ok then, here are a list of home remedies that you could try out...

    Home Remedies for Dark Skin


    Here are some simple home remedies that you can do to lighten the skin tone and get a lighter complexion. However, they must be done regularly and best results are obtained if they are inculcated as a part of daily routine.

    Mix 1 tsp of milk powder, 1 tsp of honey, 1 tsp of lemon juice, and tsp of almond oil. Apply on face and wash off after 10-15 minutes. This pack helps bring shine to the skin and also removes tan.

    Mix oatmeal with curd and tomato juice and apply on the face. Keep it on for 20 minutes and then wash it off with cold water. It helps remove the tan and lightens the skin.

    Place sliced raw potato on the face. It helps reduce blemishes and other marks.

    Applying turmeric powder along with lime juice removes the tan. Lime juice is a natural bleach.

    Dried orange peels mixed with curd also help reduce blemishes and scars. Wash off this mixture with cold water after 15 minutes.

    Soak 4 almonds overnight. Grind into a fine paste using milk. Apply on face and neck and leave it overnight. Wash with cold water in the morning. Do this daily for 15 days, followed by twice a week.

    A tbsp of gram flour mixed with 2 tsp of raw milk and 2-3 drops of lime juice works well for lightening dark skin. Apply this mixture and leave it for 15 minutes before washing off. Repeat for 4 weeks and follow up with once a week.

    Apply a paste of fresh ground mint leaves and leave it for about 20 minutes. Wash with cold water, continue for 15 days.

    Apply a mixture of grated tomato with 2-3 drops of lime juice on the face. Leave it for 20 minutes before washing off. Do this twice a day for 15-20 days for best results.

    Thank you, I will definitely try those. Home remedies sometimes work better than store-bought stuff.
