We flourish our fingers by applying nail polish but sometimes the look get spoiled because of dark Knuckles finger joints. Dark skin is due to the increased production of melanin in our body, which is also known as skin pigment. The melanin helps to protect our skin from the (UV) ultraviolet rays and decreases the chances of skin tanning.
Having dark finger joints is a common beauty related problem, there may be several causes like working with tough chemicals, an absence of skin care, prolong sun exposure, low hemoglobin, health problems etc… Keeping our hands skin well clad and younger-looking does not take more time or money. To get rid of dark Knuckles (finger joints), here are few homemade remedies.
TIPS TO LIGHTEN DARK FINGER JOINTS
This is extremely important, as exfoliation of the skin on the fingers helps remove all dead cells. The dead cells that accumulate on the finger joints darken the knuckles. Use a good scrubber to scrub out any dirt and dead cells from the skin. Every day when you take a shower, scrub your hands and wash thoroughly. Follow up with a good moisturizer as your skin would get dry after the exfoliation process.
SUGAR AND LEMON JUICE
Sugar granules are also used for scrubbing, you can take some sugar in a container and squeeze out some lemon juice over it. Mix properly and rub on the joints thoroughly. Do this for about 5 to 10 minutes every day. Changes would not come overnight. You have to be persistent and religiously continue doing this every day for faster results.
LEMON JUICE AND HONEY
A mixture of 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice can be applied and rubbed on the finger joints daily for about 10 minutes to get good results within weeks. The results would obviously vary from person to person. The darker the knuckles, the more time results would take.
MILK CREAM AND VITAMIN E
Another great mixture is milk cream with vitamin E. You can buy vitamin E capsules from any pharmaceutical store. Take 1 teaspoon of milk cream and break one capsule into the cream and mix properly. Apply this on the joints and rub intensely for about 10 minutes. Do this every day to get best and fast results. Good for people with dry skin.
YOGURT AND ALMOND
Ground 1 or 2 almonds and add a tablespoon of fresh yogurt into it and mix properly. This mixture is a very satisfying one, this is good for people with dry skin. As it helps in moisturizing. You can scrub your hands during a shower with a good scrubber and follow it up with this mixture. Apply and rub intensely on the hands and especially on the knuckles for 10 minutes or so.
