How to get rid of dark neck at home

Patches of dark skin around our neck may make us feel like covering up our neck even in the warmer season. One of the main reasons of dark neck is that we always ignore our neck while washing our face. When we look the celebrities, their neck is like white pearls. Sticky dirt is also the one of the main reasons of dark neck; even we do a lot of cleaning and scrubbing. These dark skin patches are also caused by hormonal imbalances, eczema or sun exposure. Our neck has many folds that’s why dirt and dust easily stick to it. To prevent from the dirt from going into these folds you have to do necessary clear and clean it regularly. There are few things you can try at home.

Use grated cucumber or cucumber juice on the dark neck.  Firstly apply some grated cucumber on all over the neck, then gently scrub your neck for a few minutes, after that splash your neck with rose water. Cucumber helps to soothe and glows the skin, it removes dead skin cells and gives a refreshing feeling to the skin.

Use lemon juice to lighten dark neck because in lemon citric acid is present which is a natural bleaching agent. But be careful don’t expose your neck skin directly to the sunlight after applying lemon juice. Apply directly lemon juice or rib lemon slice on your dark neck with the help of cotton ball or fingers. If you have very sensitive skin use diluted lemon juice on your dark neck.

Use honey, tomato and lemon juice to treat dark. For that simply make a paste of almond, and then add milk powder, honey, lemon juice and olive oil. Make a thick paste and apply this on your dark neck for thirty minutes or make a paste of honey and tomato, scrub this mixture for a few minutes to remove dead skin cells. Honey, lemon and milk help to lighten and nourish the dark skin.

Apply pure aloe Vera gel for dark neck directly. After twenty minutes wash your neck. Aloe Vera is a natural skin lightener, it not only lightens the dark neck but also reduce the dark spots. You can also use grated potato or potato juice on your neck for fifteen minutes. Potato is a natural bleaching agent to whiten dark neck.

Apply a paste of walnut and yoghurt on your dark neck, then lightly scrub your neck after ten minutes, wash your neck with cold water. Walnuts contain vitamins and zinc which smoothes nourishes the skin of the neck. It also helps to keep the skin hydrated because dry skin faces more problems than hydrated skin.

Dark skin of the neck has been never a pleasant thing to see. Hope these tips will help you to treat your problem effectively.

    is this is a some type of ellergy?? best solution to cure thankss keep posting it will more helpfull to all

    • hira khan says

      Hi alfesh – There are many causes of dark neck or skin discoloration on the neck. It is a fairly common skin problem in which many people experience. Sometimes, the discoloration appears in dark patches or a dark ring around the neck.

        • hira khan says

          It is a common problem. Don’t stress though. Try to exfoliate scrubs, you are safer if you make your own scrubs at home. Mostly II use these three scrubs.
          Scrub 1: Honey, Granulated sugar
          Scrub 2: Olive oil, Rock Salt
          Scrub 3: Granulated sugar, Rock salt, The juice of an orange
          Apply them on your neck , you can also try this at your face and elbows. Gently scrub and wash your face after 15 minutes with cold water.

          • says

            A dark ring is usually caused due to negligence of daily care and that’s why oil and dirt patches attached around the neck. First of all exfoliates your neck with sugar and olive oil, then rub lemon and honey for 5 minutes, after that wash it off after 30 minutes. Do it twice a day for better result

          Increase your water consumption. Exfoliate daily with a mild exfoliant, or every other day if your skin is sensitive. Apply sunscreen daily. Rub a lemon half gently over your face and any other areas you’d like to lighten. Let the juice sit until dry, then rinse off with warm water. Avoid the sun when doing this treatment. Take 1tsp (5mL) of milk and 1 tsp (5mL) of honey. Mix them together and massage into your face. Use nonfat milk for oily skin, and whole milk or cream for dry skin. Combine one teaspoon (5mL) of turmeric and three tablespoons (45mL) of lime to make a mask. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. This will stain clothing, so be careful. Beat an egg white until frothy, then apply to your face. When it dries, throughly wash off. Do not use this mask on broken skin. Mix 2 tablespoons (30mL) of honey with two tablespoons (30mL) plain yogurt. Leave it on your face for about 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. I hope it helps you.

    • umara says

      hi hira i tried the sugar and olve oil scrub and the honry with lemon for weeks and still no improvement plz help

      • says

        Use some raw milk at night. Then wash it off at morning. Also apply milk with walnut powder for one hour. You have to do any Cardio exercise which makes you so much sweat. Then rub a clean towel on your neck and face. You will see improvement in one week.

  2. says

    Hi hira – thank you for sharing another awesome post. Since ages people use home remedies and herbal preparation to make their skin look brighter from dark skin color. Home treatment for dark skin on neck is not only inexpensive but is also not harmful as other chemical procedures.

  3. says

    The best home remedy to get rid of dark skin is to make a solution of 3 tablespoons milk, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp lime juice and a tsp of almond oil. Apply this on the dark area and leave it on for fifteen minutes. This pack helps get rid of dark skin

  4. says

    i must agree with you hira – I have the same issue with my skin around neck. I want to share my own experience, take a cotton ball, wet it with rubbing alcohol and gently scrub the area. If the ball becomes dark then you have dead skin cells that have not been removed causing dark skin. Back of neck, neckline, elbows are some areas that this can occur.

    • hira khan says

      Yes I tried this many times. It’s really very good and It also doesn’t give any side effects. Any ways thanks for sharing this amazing remedy with all of us.

    • benjina says

      hey hira can we use any alcohol…like rum,beer etc? im sick of my black skin in my neck,underarms n between the thigh:-(:’(

      • says

        applying a natural yogourt to your skin as a mask will work. alcohol has no beneficial ingredients in skin care, nothing. what you’re looking for is something to exfoliate and smooth the skin (which lightens) and alchol merely dries the skin out (drying is not exfoliating, but damaging..so skip it)
        papaya and pineapple can also help. milk, used as a cleanser or toner does as well.

      It’s depends on your skin type. You can try all the remedy unless you find the best remedy for you. My skin type is oily and that’s why I prefer to use honey, tomato and lemon juice remedy because it gives me faster result.

        • hira khan says

          Yes you can use Red Sandalwood Powder But You can mix it with Tomato juice to remove acne, dark spots and lighten your skin tone. Another remedy you can try to lighten your skin is simply mixed red sandalwood powder with almond oil and coconut milk to make a thick paste and apply it for 20 minutes But remember using these remedies on regular base to get good results.

            Lemon juice, it’s a natural skin bleach. It stings a little, but it will go away. Dab the area 3 times a day with lemon juice (green lemons work best) followed by a moisturizer (containing lemons of course). Also purchase Fade out White Original Moisturising Cream with the help of this you can see results in a few days, it gets rid of scars, marks left from bites or spots/acne, age spots, any other brown spots and pigmentation marks, it also brightens up your complexion making it seem less dull, over time your marks and flaws will fade.

    You have a lot of acidity in your stomach. So try to avoid junk foods and skip the red pepper in your diet and eat black pepper dishes. Drink a lot of water and eat juicy fruits. Minimum do 1 hour exercise 3 times a week. It will help to give you a glowing and even skin tone. Now try this, be your shoulder high and up your confidence. For oily skin you can check out my post below.

    • says

      To minimize the appearance of existing enlarged pores, you need to exfoliate your skin regularly to remove dead skin cells. take one tablespoon of lemon juice, one cup of rose water and add half cup of cucumber juice. Mix the ingredients well and apply on your huge pores. This natural remedy for large pores reduces the big pores and makes them appear visibly smaller. Use ice cubes to shrink large pores on your cheeks, nose, chine, and forehead. You can tighten your saggy skin by using papaya facial. Mashed papaya applied on the skin. you can also use honey, yoghurt egg white face mask to sove these problems. I hope it works.

      Moisturize your neck properly every day and I preper to use scrub after it. Vitamin E cream can be applied on the dark spots to help lighten the skin massage it into the skin without rubbing it too vigorously. Aloe vera gel can also help lighten dark skin. Apply it twice a day to the darker areas. You can also whip up a mixture of almond oil, honey, milk, and lime juice leave the mask on your skin for at least 20 minutes, then rinse it off.

      Take mash cucumber and mix it with turmeric powder. You may also add lime juice to enhance the capability of the mixture to fight against skin darkening under arms. Apply this mixture for half an hour and then, wash it away to get glowing skin under arms. Another best remedy is you must mix milk with equal quantity of curd and gram flour. You may also prefer to add a pinch of turmeric powder in the mixture. Apply this over the area and keep for at least 20 minutes, before rinsing with cold water.

    hi hira.
    thanks for giving very amazing beauty tips. but i have one problem. i need tips for removing blackness on neck , and also avoiding oilnynees on face and also avoiding sweat. please give nice tips.

    • says

      First of all avoid junk foods, spicy foods and eat a healthy diet. Make sure you bath regularly. This will help to minimize the impacts of over-sweating. By showering as needed you can eliminate as much of the bacteria that causes body odor. Drink plenty of water. It both dilutes the concentration of your bodily effluents and it cleanses the entire system.Watch your weight. Heavier people have a harder time cooling themselves and may sweat more. Try getting to a healthy weight and your perspiration issues may solve themselves. In the last apply some mashed banana, honey, olive oil and crushed salt on your neck and face. I hope it works.

      For dark neck you have to make a paste of almonds, honey, lemon juice. Apply it and wait for 20 minutes, after that rub your neck with a clean towel and wash it off. Recently I have posted about oily skin, check it out.

    I just want to know that I m applying this paste of 1tsp of cucumber and 1 tsp of lemon juice, mixed well and I m applying this with my hand to my neck for 20 mins, then I wash it wid water.

Please tell me that if I apply this paste regularly than my neck will be cleaned and would look good and nice when I go to school.

    hi,
    I have white and oily skin. I am suffering with black neck and also suffering with dead cells all over my face. so , plz tell some home remidies to cure these problems.

    • says

      Use Aveeno face moisturizer because the wheat in it makes your face super smooth!
      I use a face mask made of oatmeal or oats (about a handful), honey (1 tablespoon?), and about a half cup of plain yogurt. Put it on your face for 10 minutes and wipe it off with a warm towel. Then out lotion on after. I make my own with avocado, honey, lime juice. Or papaya, plain yogurt, banana. Just be sure to use a mask no more than 3 times a week. Hope it helped!

    Hi Hira,
    My knees are very dirty I want to get rid my dark knees.Please tell me some simple remedy to get rid of this as within 15 days I am going to have my farewell,so I want to look nice.Please tell some easy tips.

    • says

      Use a lemon to scrub your knees. You can use the lemons left over from the previous remedy. Apply some mineral oil or coconut oil to your elbows and knees an hour before you go to bathe. Take a nice hot shower and then using oatmeal scrub exfoliate your knees and elbows. Rubbing cucumber on your knees and elbows may act as a natural bleach you can also use gram flour as a scrub. Before using any scrub, try and loosen dry skin in the area by moisturizing and steaming them. Dip a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and apply it to the knees and elbows. Repeat this exercise a couple of times a day.

    • says

      Take baking soda, Milk, olive oil, lemon juice, gram flour and honey. Mix them together and apply on your skin for 30 minutes. Then wash it off with cold water.

        • says

          Take once cup multani mitti (fuller earth) ,add 5 tsp of rice flour in it and add 1 egg white. Now mix all the ingredients together. You can add little water to make a loose paste. Cover up your scalp and hair thoroughly with this pack.

          Few things which you have to take care of while using this pack. Take a wide comb and comb your hair down 2-3 times before you apply the pack. Massage your hair with oil at night and use this hair pack the next day. While you apply this hair pack keep combing your hair straight in between. Idea is to keep your hair as straight as possible. Let the pack dry completely which takes around 40 minutes. Wash it off with water. Multani mitti take time in getting out but if rinse properly it takes around 15 minutes. I used this hair pack once in 15 days for four months and. My hair are naturally straight now so to give them nutrition I add shikakai and amla powder into it too.

          Take ½ cup of milk and put it in a spray bottle. Spray it on your hair and comb 4-5 times thoroughly. Let the milk penetrate into your hair 15-20 minutes .Shampoo and condition your hair as usual. This will make your hair straight, silky and bouncy. Effect of this mixture will last till you wash your hair next time.

    • says

      Take two strips of cloth that are wide enough to cover your knees/elbows and some olive oil. Apply olive oil on knees/elbows and massage it for 2 mins. Tie 2 strips of cloths around knees to keep the moisture in and leave them over night. In the morning, scrub your knees/elbows with loofah and wash off the oil in the shower. Moisturize your knees/elbows after a shower and Repeat until you see results.

      Exfoliate your neck skin twice a week with yogurt and crushed walnuts. You can also try a natural scrub made of baking soda and water for removing hyper pigmentation on the neck. Soak four to five almonds overnight. Grind into a paste and apply on the skin discoloration of neck and back. Leave the paste on your dark neck for half an hour and rinse with warm water and clean with a towel. Make a paste of soaked almond and add milk powder, honey, lemon juice, and olive oil to the almond paste. Mix the ingredients well and apply to the brown skin discoloration on neck for 30 minutes. Wash it off with water. I hope it works. Best of luck for your birthday.

    • says

      My skin is so much oily as well as sensitive. I will recommened to use aveeno moisturizer or clean and clear moisturizer. For sunscreen you have to choose La Roche-Posay Tinted Anthelios 50 or Hollywood sunscreens. For body lotions my favorites are Burt’s bee, aveeno and Olay now it depend on you which one you choose. Actually I hate bleaching my skin because is very harmful but for you I will recommend Jolen or oxyglow. I hope it’s helps you. Take care and keep visiting.

    • says

      You can try a natural scrub made of baking soda, lemon juice and water for removing hyper pigmentation on neck. The mix should be paste-like. As baking soda works as a natural skin exfoliant, it will slowly remove dark discolored patches on the neck and back. This will provide a brighter skin tone on your discolored neck.

            For dark underarms mix a handful of gram flour with yogurt, lemon and a little turmeric powder. Keep it for 15-20 minutes, and then wash it off. If you want to buy a readymade mask – try any clay-based lightening skin mask. If your dark underarms are a result of dead cell accumulation, the best way to treat this is to use whitening scrubs. Select a scrub for sensitive skin, such as Nivea, St Ives and Everyuth Naturals.

    • says

      Basically you have a problem of sleep Apnea or sleep disorder. Some people find that even moderate to severe sleep apnea can be completely corrected by losing excess weight. For others, even a small amount of weight loss can open up the throat and improve sleep apnea symptoms. Do regularly one hour of cardio exercises.
      Quit smoking. Smoking is believed to contribute to sleep apnea by increasing inflammation and fluid retention in your throat and upper airway.
      Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives, especially before bedtime as they relax the muscles in the throat and interfere with breathing.
      Avoid caffeine and heavy meals within two hours of going to bed.
      Maintain regular sleep hours. Sticking to a steady sleep schedule will help you relax and sleep better. Apnea episodes decrease when you get plenty of sleep.
      Sleep on your side. Avoid sleeping on your back, as gravity makes it more likely for your tongue and soft tissues to drop and obstruct your airway.
      The tennis ball trick. In order to keep yourself from rolling onto your back while you sleep, sew a tennis ball into a pocket on the back of your pajama top. Or wedge a pillow stuffed with tennis balls behind your back.
      Prop your head up. Elevate the head of your bed by four to six inches or elevate your body from the waist up by using a foam wedge. You can also use a special cervical pillow.
      Open your nasal passages. Try to keep your nasal passages open at night using a nasal dilator, saline spray, breathing strips, or a neti pot.

    Thanks!

      Make a paste of honey, crushed sugar, papaya and lemon juice. Apply it on your face for 30 minutes. Lemon juice dries your skin but honey moisture and heel your skin from damage.

  44. samara says

    is this only for face or neck in particular? is there a substitute to papaya? is it ok if i apply only honey lemon and sugar? i heard baking soda is kind of harmful and too harsh on skin but its effective in some way. Is this true?

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY BEST BEST HIRA!! :)

    • says

      You can use banana and apple juice, its not a big problem or you can use the mixture without papaya. Baking soda and water both used together to get rid of dark neck and dandruff, it’s not harmful but I don’t like it’s smell. My recommendation is that please can’t use baking soda because Saudis Arabia is a hot country that’s why you face redness and itchy so be careful.

  45. samara says

    ok great! i thought of using baking soda since it works fast but i wont coz i live in Saudi.

    Has any one seen results using honey, lemon and sugar scrub? i applied lemon for a while but didnt help.

    I hope this mixture helps. if anyone tried please let me know. I trust your advice Hira. :)

Both milk and turmeric have bleaching properties and regular use makes the skin flawless. Apart from these remedies, have a regular skin care routine. Keep the skin hydrated, moisturised and well nourished. Apply sunscreen before going out in sun, whether you are 16 or 60, to prevent the sun’s rays from damaging and aging your skin.

      Take 4-5 almonds. Soak them overnight and peel them off in the morning. Grind them to make a fine paste. Now add some honey to make a thick paste. Now apply this on your face and neck for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse off with lukewarm water. This home remedy not only lighten your skin complexion but also creates a nature glow on your face.Eating apples, guava, pears and peaches, with their skin give the glowing fair skin complexion.
      I came to know that you have a lot of acidity in your stomach. So so not eat greasy food, funk foods, spicy Foods, specially made with red pepper eat foods which made with black pepper. Eat lots of healthy, natural foods, eat juicy fruits and vegetables. Drink a lot of water. Wash your face whenever you can, but don’t dry it up. Don’t touch your face with your germy hands or pick/poke blemishes, it just makes it worse. Wash your hair; the oil from your head runs down onto your face. At least done one hour Cardio exercise must if you want clean and healthy skin.

    • says

      you need to start by giving your neck a nice wash. Get into the habit of exfoliating with an scrub every week, literally every week. Exfoliating means gently wiping away the top layer of dead skin cells. Try lemon juice and powderized milk , make it into a paste then apply on the area. Allow 15 to 30 mins then wash off.

    please help me

    • says

      You got a black neck problem due to weight gain. So first of all you have to lose your weight with proper diet and regular exercise. Never do crash dieting because it not only bad for health but it causes hair loss. Do Cardio exercises like running, jogging. Swimming, roping for almost 30 minutes after starting then after 15 days do these exercises for 50 to 60 minutes. If you do it properly you have almost lost 3 to 4 inches from waist in 2 months. When you got sweat from the exercises. Rub a clean towel into your neck and face. Apply some raw milk at night when you are going to bed. Don’t wash it off. Wash it at morning. Moreover you have to exfoliate your neck and face daily and apply a paste of rose petals and milk cream to apply on your neck. It works effectively to provide liveliness of your neck with beautiful pink color. Drink half liter milk at morning with one or two boiled eggs.

      A chemical peel is a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off.The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Thus the term chemical peel is derived. Some types of chemical peels can be purchased and administered without a medical license, however people are advised to seek professional help from a dermatologist, esthetician, plastic surgeon, or otolaryngologist on a specific type of chemical peel before a procedure is performed.
      Alpha hydroxy acids can also be mixed with a facial wash or cream in lesser concentrations as part of a daily skin-care regimen to improve the skin’s texture.

Swelling of the skin, Thinning of the skin, Cataracts, Setting down of fat on face, chest, upper back and stomach, Increase in appetite and weight gain, Osteoporosis, Neurological and kidney damage due to high level of mercury used in the creams. Here are some of the natural ways for getting flawless and fair skin without using skin bleaches. Diet is the most important part that you should take care of if you want a flawless skin. Take away all refined food products and replace them with healthy and nutritious ones. Increase your intake of water.

      How to remove chickenpox scars using mung beans. Green beans soaked in water until they swell, then finely crushed and apply on the skin that contains chickenpox scars. Apart from this it also hydrates the skin and helps in the construction of fresh cells. Therefore make sure to drink as much water as possible during the healing period. Vinegar and lemon juice have also been found to be mildly effective in reducing the effect of scarring. Vitamin E creams are also very useful in treating chickenpox scars. Cucumber with lemon juice or honey with lemon juice also helps. Honey also helps for chicken pox scars

      Make a pack by mixing chickpea flour (besan), curd (dahi, Yoghurt) and turmeric powder (haldi) with rosewater and apply it on your face keep 10 min and the wash. This pack can be used twice a week. And in the second week you will see the difference.

    My skin is little sensitive …it has turn black due 2 chemical water and sun tanning. .cn u help me 2 cure dis thng befre it increases..thank u

    • says

      Skin tan is mainly due to sun rays. Before stepping out of your home in the sun, always use a good sunscreen lotion with high SPF. And never forget to carry umbrella and sunshades with you if you are planning to walk in the sun. If your skin is sun damaged, clean it with a mixture of milk, honey and lemon juice. This will not only remove the tanning from your damaged area but will leave your skin smooth and glowing. mix rice flour with curd and apply it on the face. Massage gently using circular movements and wash it off after 5 minutes. Mix chick pea powder in a little water and apply to the face. Remain for 15 minutes and wash it off with cold water. This improves complexion or lightens your skin tone.

      Increase your water consumption. Exfoliate daily with a mild exfoliant, or every other day if your skin is sensitive. Apply sunscreen daily. Rub a lemon half gently over your face and any other areas you’d like to lighten. Let the juice sit until dry, then rinse off with warm water. Avoid the sun when doing this treatment. Take 1tsp (5mL) of milk and 1 tsp (5mL) of honey. Mix them together and massage into your face. Use nonfat milk for oily skin, and whole milk or cream for dry skin. Combine one teaspoon (5mL) of turmeric and three tablespoons (45mL) of lime to make a mask. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. This will stain clothing, so be careful. Beat an egg white until frothy, then apply to your face. When it dries, throughly wash off. Do not use this mask on broken skin. Mix 2 tablespoons (30mL) of honey with two tablespoons (30mL) plain yogurt. Leave it on your face for about 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. I hope it helps you.

    Thanks.

      Only wash at night! Your face needs oxygen trust me it will work. Use lemons on your face every third day, and let it sit for 15-20 minuts. Use extra virgin olive oil as moisturizer every night before you go to bed. Use hot water to rinse and cold water to close pores. Rub an icecube all over the hyperpigmentation every night and rinse with cold water. And thats ALL you have to do for this to work. Too many things on your skin will not heal it faster, your skin needs a break to find itself.
      Drink AT LEAST 1 gallon of water everyday. Eat raw vegetables every meal or every third hour. Eat 2 avocados a day. Use olive oil and coconut oil in your salats or just drink/eat it raw (dont skip this step) get at least 8-9 hours of sleep. Eat nuts and fruits daily

      Try to consume less than 45g of sugar on a daily basis, and cut down on salty foods. Eating too much salt can make your face look bloated.
      Take vitamins. If you’re worried you aren’t getting enough of necessary vitamins and minerals, try taking a multivitamin. Vitamins intended for pregnant women are especially beneficial to the skin.
      Work out. Cardio makes your skin glow because it stimulates blood flow. It’s also healthy for your body and will make you stronger. You’ll see results immediately and long term, too.
      Try to follow these things in your life to get healthy and shiny skin. In a bowl, dissolve the saffron strands in warm milk. Add honey and lemon juice. Apply this face pack on your face and neck. First of all exfoliate your neck with the help of crushed sugar , lemon juice and oil. Be gentle exfoliate your neck for 15 minutes. after then wash with cold water. Then Soak the almonds overnight and then grind it with raw milk( the milk which is not bolied) to make a paste. Apply this on your neck and face for one hour then wash it off.

      Drink lots of water. Eat nutritious food rich in antioxidants. They help slow the aging process of your skin making you look younger. Slice a ripe papaya, Mash one small fresh ripe papaya, Add 1 to 2 tsp of milk to the pulp. and rub it on your dark areas early in the morning. Soak almonds overnight in water and prepare a paste by grinding them in the morning. Mix rose water to the paste and apply it all over the body. It is one of the best natural home remedy for dark areas.

      While sleeping put a clean cloth on ur pillow and sleep cuz ur skin is constanly shedding dead cells and all..so if they stick on ur face again they may have an effect on ur skin. use tulsi,turmeric,lemon juice,honey,ginger,strawberry,a little bit of curd of u want,and a bit of flour to add thickness to it..apply it for a week and u will get a skin which wll make u smile for years. Dilute vinegar equally with water, and use to cleanse and rinse your face. Allow to air dry to seal in moisture. Or, use the vinegar/water mixture in place of an astringent or toner. Onion, vinegar and lemon juice are excellent home remedies to relieve you of age spots, melasma, pigmentation and discoloration. I found this treatment quite effective for lightening over several weeks. Mash banana and guava together and apply this paste on the effected areas. Wash off after 15-20 minutes. Follow this everyday. The lycopene in the guava and the exfoliating properties of the banana together will lead to skin lightening.

      Apply Vaseline to lips and brush lightly with a soft toothbrush to get rid of dead skin.. Use lemon juice with almond oil or glycerin every night on your lips. Apply fresh coconut milk over your face and lips. This gives a glow to your skin and avoids lips getting dark or dry. Massage lips every night with a mixture of 1/2 tsp. Glycerin and 1/2 tsp. Castor oil with 1/2 tsp. Lemon juice and leave overnight. Always take plenty of vegetable, fruit and water. If you are open in sun for long, use UV protectors on your lipsticks

    • says

      Follow a daily skin care routine of cleansing and exfoliation of the neck for at least two weeks before you see results. Use plain milk to cleanse your neck. Milk is an excellent cleanser as well as a good toner. After cleansing, scrub your neck with a granular exfoliating scrub. Any scrub bought off the shelf will do for this purpose. But if you do not wish to invest in one, you can also make your own. Make a pasty mix of olive oil and sugar crystals and use this to scrub your neck in gentle circular motions till all the sugar dissolves. This scrub will help to even out your skin tone. You should alternate using this one with a scrub that will also mildly bleach your skin. Make one with crushed walnut and yogurt, to which a few drops of lime juice have been added. Massage this into your skin gradually and slowly. Keep in mind that this is slightly abrasive, since walnuts will not dissolve as sugar does. Do be particularly gentle or you may hurt yourself while cleansing.
      There are also some rare and unusual cases wherein pigmentation is part of the problem. The most effective natural skin care remedy for cases of pigmentation is applying aloe vera gel to the darkened area. You can apply and leave the gel on as frequently as is possible. Application of lime juice to the neck will also help to lighten its color somewhat. But remember to do this only at night, so that you do not go out in the sun with remnants of lime juice on your neck. This will have a tendency to make your neck darker, since skin that has been exposed to a mix of lime juice and sunlight will do that.

      Drink at least 4-5 liters of water every day. Water washes out the toxins from the body. Use a good quality sunscreen when going out in the sun to protect the skin from tanning as well as the sun’s UV rays. Incorporate whole cereals, pulses, fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. 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. 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. 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.

      I have heard people with Thyroid problem have dark neck. Get yourself tested. Also in our local beauty parlour they do something called body polishing. It removes sun tan and other darkness from the skin. Extract lemon juice and cucumber juice. Mix them together with a pinch of turmeric. Apply to neck or face daily and leave this for 20 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Mix 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in 2 tablespoons of glycerin. Apply this (as you would apply cream) daily on your neck before sleeping and wash it off in the morning.

      Mix Gram Dhal Powder with curd and fresh milk..make it a paste and apply directly to your neck. Pores will greatly minimize in as little as 2 to 3 days by vigorous massaging using a pure natural oil. Olive is excellent. Pure natural oils are noncomedogenic so do not clog, cause breakouts or make face oily.
      Do forward and back massage – circular will not work. For quickest results do each day for 15 min. Mixture of rose water, sandalwood paste and fuller’s earth ( a form of clay) can be used as a face pack
      to close small pores.Wash the pack after 15-20 minutes

      After reading your comment I came to know that you have almost six problems. We can’t solve all the problems quickly. So we do it one by one I mean step by step. Firstly I will solve your oily skin and pimple problem. Banana Skin wash, 3 times a day for 10 minutes. Just rub the inside of the skin over the acne and it reduces acne. Washing your face once in the morning and once at night should reduce how oily your skin. mix turmeric,green gram and orange peel(grinded). apply it. and use clean and clear face wash.

      For 15 days, apply a paste of gram flour (besan), milk (2 teaspoon) and lime juice(3-4 drops) on face and neck for 15 minutes and wash with water. You complexion should improve. Repeat every 2 weeks.

      For getting a clear complexion and glowing skin, free from that oily and greasy look, you may try out this pack. Combine neem powder with yoghurt, rose petal powder and raw milk. Once it forms a smooth paste, apply it on your face and neck. Wait for fifteen minutes and then rinse with rose water. If you do not have rose water at home, you can wash off with plain cold water.

      This is slow process. It will take about 3 months. It should be done daily without fail. Everyday while taking bath, take a cup full of chickpea flour. Add one tablespoonful of turmeric powder and to this add fresh lemon juice. Next add that much water as to make it a semi solid paste. Now apply this to your whole body or wherever it is needed and wait for 20 minutes to dry off. Then wash your face/body with natural ayurvedic soap. Continue this regime for 3 months and you will be surprised at the transformation on your face/body.
      Good luck and God bless. Cheers!

    This is possible since the cleansing has reset the body and after the program, the
    person will continue with the old diet but this time the body will react
    to the food causing an allergic reaction. It is therefore so
    important to eliminate these from our system to allow it to
    work effectively. Processed foods and animal
    foods are devoid of fiber and your body can’t get an accurate calorie
    count when you eat a predominantly fiber-less diet.

      Take 5-6 orange peels and leave it by the window to dry out from the sun. Once dried, grind the orange peels to a powder and place into a container. Once a week mix some of the orange skin powder, a bit of rosewater and a milk to form a paste. Apply it generously all over the face and neck and leave on until dry. Rinse off in circular motions
