10 natural ways to brighten skin and get rid of dark pigmentation neck

If you have dark pigmentation under your skin, it could be the sign of a serious health condition. According to Healthline, the dark skin under your neck is often linked to obesity and diabetes. Essentially, the most common reason a person may develop this skin condition is because of too much insulin in the bloodstream.
However, the darkness does not necessarily have to be this particular skin disorder; it could be as simple as natural aging or even sun exposure. While it is certainly important to treat the underlying issue, there are ways that you can speed up the process for removing unsightly darkness under your neck. Let’s discuss a few home remedies that can help you.
1. Walnuts
According to Top 10 Home Remedies, walnuts can be just what you need to repair damaged skin. Walnuts are chock-full of vitamins and minerals that are essential to promoting skin health. They can also help keep skin moisturized to keep it looking youthful and fresh. To make the paste, you will need crushed walnuts and yogurt. Apply the paste to the troubled area and allow it to dry. Rinse clean.
2. Oatmeal
Oatmeal is a gentle way to remove grime and build-up while exfoliating the skin. An article from Rapid Home Remedies indicates that mixing oatmeal with a natural skin-lightening ingredient will help skin stay healthy while reducing the dark pigmentation. To make the scrub, combine oatmeal, tomato pulp, water, and moisturizer. Apply to your neck and allow it to set a few minutes before rinsing away. Oatmeal will cleanse the skin while the tomato pulp will naturally lighten the area.
3. Cucumber
If you have a dark neck, then you will want to try out this simple method. NLDA describes cucumber as a cleansing agent that can also exfoliate the skin—two things that definitely help reduce the appearance of dark pigmentation. The article suggests mashing up a cucumber and putting it on the dark area for 20 minutes. The cucumber will help remove dead skin cells and grime.
4. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice could be the ideal way to rid your neck of discoloration. Not only does lemon juice have citric acid which works as a natural lightening agent, but it also contains Vitamin C, which helps remove dead skin cells and also helps lighten the skin as well. Natural Beauty Tips says to apply lemon juice directly to the darkened area and let it set for 20 minutes before rinsing away. The article also warns that you should not step out into the sunlight with lemon juice on your skin, and you should dilute the juice if you have sensitive skin.
5. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera proves to have a number of benefits for your skin. Top 10 Home Remedies describes aloe vera as being a natural skin lightening agent and the antioxidant properties also work to repair damaged skin. You can use the gel directly from the plant and apply it to the dark pigment under your neck. Let it set for 20 minutes before rinsing away. This solution is mild enough to repeat daily as needed.
6. Baking Soda
Baking soda is another source for natural exfoliation. Rapid Home Remedies indicates that to use baking soda all you need to do is add a bit of water. Apply the paste to your neck and allow it to set for 15 minutes before removing.
7. Almonds
Like walnuts, almonds are another great way to nourish and moisturize your skin. NLDA indicates that eating the nuts can certainly be beneficial, but for faster results you should apply a mixture of crushed almonds, honey, and milk powder directly to the troubled area. Allow the vitamins and minerals found in the almonds to treat the dark spot.
8. Orange Peel
Natural Beauty Tips says that the Vitamin C and antioxidants found in orange peels can lighten the skin and improve overall skin tone. The article indicates that you should mix dried orange peel and milk to create a paste. Apply it to your skin and let it set before rinsing away. The article also warns that when drying the orange peel you should do so in the shade because direct sunlight can zap the Vitamin C making it less efficient.
9. Yogurt
Yogurt is an excellent solution for age spots that can develop under the neck. According to Rapid Home Remedies, naturally cleanses and lightens the skin. You can include lemon or lime juice to lighten the skin even faster.
10. Potato Juice
The enzyme called catecholase found in potatoes works as a natural skin listener. Rapid Home Remedies indicates that you should rub a sliced potato on your neck for a minute per day for 2-3 months to achieve the best results.
