Home remedies for dark neck

Aloe Vera Gel For Dark Neck

1. Cut open the leaf and extract the gel.

2. Scrub your neck for a few minutes with this gel. Leave it on for 10 minutes.

3. Rinse with water.

How Often You Should Do This:

Repeat this every day for quick results.

Why This Works:

Aloesin, a flavonoid found in aloe vera, helps lighten the skin by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme that causes pigmentation of the skin. Aloe vera also keeps the skin hydrated and nourished as it contains essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

Apple Cider Vinegar For Dark Neck

You Will Need:

• 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

• 4 tablespoons water

• Cotton ball

What You Have To Do:

1. Dilute ACV with water and apply this solution with a cotton ball on the neck.

2. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse with water.

How Often You Should Do This:

Repeat this every alternate day.

Why This Works:

ACV balances the pH of the skin, giving it a natural glow. It also removes the dead skin cells that have accumulated on the skin and make it look dark and dull. This exfoliating action is because of the malic acid found in ACV.

Caution:

Do not forget to moisturize your skin after using this remedy as apple cider vinegar can slightly dehydrate the skin.
