Image result for How Lighten Dark Knuckles Naturally Without Using ChemicalsWhen you meet someone especially for the first time, you normally put your hand out for a
good handshake. But if your hands are not well kept, you may have some hesitation.
Our hands are used for most of the day’s projects and chores, they need care to look nice and smooth. But they are one of the most overlooked parts of body when it comes to beauty care. No matter how beautiful or handsome you look, the roughness and dryness of your hands and dark knuckles can take away the beauty of your hands.

Dark knuckles are one of the common problems that many people are faced with. There can be many reasons behind dark knuckles. The main reason is the melanin that forms in the body, which causes hyperpigmentation. The reason for melanin formation is over exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays.

It can also be caused by hormonal changes in the body, accumulation of dark cells, use of chemical-based products, and work or sports that cause excessive friction on the knuckles. Some skin diseases can also lead to dark knuckles, such as eczema and psoriasis.

Dark knuckles mean extra care is required, as the damage has been done already so now it has to be mended. There are many simple and effective home remedies to treat dark knuckles.
Here are 8 ways to lighten dark knuckles:
1. Take Care of Your Hands
To handle dark knuckles, the first thing to do is take proper care of your hands.
Be gentle when you are washing or massaging your hands. At the same time, avoid washing them with extremely hot water and refrain from rubbing them too hard.
Also, care for your knuckles by using a soft loofah and pumice stones on a regular basis to clean them. Exfoliation helps get rid of the darkened skin.

When using a moisturizing lotion, choose one that has an SPF of 15 or above. This will help protect your hands from harmful UV rays of the sun and prevent hyperpigmentation.
Before going to bed, apply a thick layer of hand cream and massage gently. This will help keep your skin soft and reduce the chances of it drying out.
For pampering your hands, also go for manicures from time to time.
2. Coconut Oil
A source of extremely skin-benefiting goodness, coconut oil is a good home remedy to treat dark knuckles.
It contains vitamin E which can help lighten the skin tone and prevent dryness by keeping the skin hydrated and moisturized. It can also repair dark and damaged skin.

A 2004 discovery published in Dermatitis reports that coconut oil significantly improves skin hydration and was just as effective as mineral oil (1).
Rub extra-v*rgin coconut oil all over the knuckles and massage the area before going to bed. Do this daily.
Alternatively, prepare a mixture with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and ½ teaspoon of lemon juice. Rub this oil on your dark knuckles and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Wipe it off with paper towels. You can rinse your skin the next morning. Do this once daily.
3. Lemon and Sugar Scrub
Gently exfoliating your hands with a homemade lemon and sugar scrub can help lighten the tone of your skin by removing dead cells from the skin’s surface.

Being rich in vitamin C, lemons help get rid of dead skin cells and improve overall skin tone. It also aids new cell growth. The sugar granules help exfoliate dead skin cells and soften the skin.
Sprinkle some sugar on a halved piece of lemon. Scrub your knuckles with it to get rid of dirt and dead skin cells. Leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing it off. Do this once a week.

Another option is to mix equal amounts of lemon juice and sugar. Apply it on your hands and feet. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes, then scrub off the paste. Rinse off the rest with water. Do this once or twice a week.
Caution: After using lemon, avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight for at least 1 to 2 hours.
