Dark finger joints is a common beauty ailment. Dark knuckles are formed as a result of a number of factors. Most importantly, the dead cells that accumulate on the skin cause the skin to get dark. Then there is melanin in the body whose excess formation causes hyperpigmentation. The sun’s rays causes the melanin to increase in our body.

Again there are several other reasons for this problem. However, I believe every beauty ailment has a diagnosis. I prefer going green when it comes to my skin. This is because vegan products and home remedies do not have any side effects, when used wisely, in contrary to chemical products. Here I have listed a few home remedies to get lighten your dark knuckles and help you to flaunt your hands with pride.

Tips To Lighten Dark Finger Joints

Exfoliation Process

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. Everyday when you take shower scrub your hands and wash thoroughly. Follow up with a good moisturizer as your skin would get dry after the exfoliation process.

Pumice Stone

A pumice stone is used in most beauty parlours and is regarded as a good tool in a manicure-pedicure kit. Keep a pumice stone in your bathroom for everyday use. Take some shampoo (an anti-dandruff shampoo would be a good option) into a container and mix it with a generous amount of water.

Apply the shampoo water on your hands thoroughly. Then take the pumice stone and rub it on your fingers and hands properly. Then rinse your hands properly with water.

Sugar And Lemon Juice

Sugar granules are also used for scrubbing, you can take some sugar in a container ans squeeze out some lemon juice over it. Mix properly and rub on the joints thoroughly. Do this for about 5 to 10 minutes everyday. Changes would not come overnight. You have to be persistent and religiously continue doing this everyday 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 depend 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 everyday 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 specially on the knuckles for 10 minutes or so. Then rinse the hands properly and wipe hands. You can do this everyday too.
