How to lighten dark skin around the neck



Sep 6 2017     By Asha Parvathy


Dark neck is a common problem that affects most of the people. It happens because most people's beauty routine only includes caring for their face, they avoid their neck area completely and apply all the beauty products on the face only.

That is not enough to look beautiful. A dark neck will create a stark contrast to the pristine face. So you need to take extra care to your neck. We have listed below some natural remedies to get rid of dark neck.

The citric acid present in lemon is good for bleaching your skin. Take a teaspoon of lemon juice and mix it with a teaspoon of rose water. Apply this mixture on your neck evenly. It is better to apply this mixture before going to bed and leave it overnight. Wash it off in the morning. Follow this process for at least a month your neck skin will become lighter and smoother.

Lemon juice can also be applied on your neck after mixing it with turmeric powder. You can wash it off after about 15 minutes. Turmeric will make the skin smoother.

Another powerful bleaching agent is a potato. You can mix lemon juice and potato juice evenly and apply on your skin for about 15 minutes and wash it off with cold water. You can also apply potato juice directly on your neck or rub potato slices on your neck.

Milk is also a good cleanser. You can rub it on your neck; it will not only act as a cleanser, but will also tone your skin.

Another natural remedy to get rid of a dark neck skin is oats. It can be used as a natural scrub as well as natural mask. Take a cup of oats and ground it (don't grind it into powder). Mix some tomato pulp in it. Apply this tomato-oats mixture on your neck. Let it remain there for around 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, start massaging the neck gently in circular motions with wet fingers for about 5 minutes. Wash it off later. You can apply some moisturizer on your neck after it. 

You should do it for about twice a week to lighten the neck skin.

Here is one more natural tip to get rid of the dark neck. Grate some cucumber and apply it on your neck. After 10 minutes, massage your neck with wet fingers. Wash it off after 5 minutes and apply rose water on your neck. Cucumber will not only lighten your neck skin, it will give a soothing feeling to your skin.

One important thing you should remember is that, even if you select any of these remedies you have to follow it strictly for a couple of months to get a good result. You shouldn’t expect results in the first use itself.
