Magic Miracles for Dark Neck

3 Amazing Home Remedies For Dark, Black Neck

It’s time to trade your small bathroom mirror for a taller one. Why? Because that’s when you will start to notice the difference in colour between your face and neck.

More often than not, we tend to pay a lot of attention only to the face area by regular visits to the salon or by following regular hygiene at home. We ignore the area below that face and that’s where all the problems begin. Believe it or not, people not just look at your face or eyes but the entire portion around the head. So wouldn’t it be a shame to sport a fair face but a dark neck?

Ask yourself how many times you moisturize your neck and face together? Better still, how many times do you rinse both areas with water? If your answer ranges from few times to never, it’s time to do something about it.

The medical term for dark neck is Acanthosis Nigricans and is common in patients suffering from diabetes, obesity, hormonal imbalance, eczema or polycystic ovary syndrome. Poor hygiene, ageing and too much exposure to the sun are other known causes. The result is hyperpigmentation in the folds and creases of the neck.

You’ll be surprised, but there are plenty of home remedies for dark neck.
