DIY Scrub For Dark Skin Around The Neck

Hey ladies,

Since I am in the postnatal stage and my body is still recovering I like to try various DIY recipes. I had developed a lot of dark skin around the neck but knew nothing would work during pregnancy. So, I started trying this DIY scrub in the postnatal stage. And, I am already seeing a lot of difference in my skin. Let’s find out more about it.

You need:

• Honey
• A potato
• Turmeric powder
• An empty bowl
• A spoon
• And a scraper


Step one:
Take an empty bowl and add less than half a teaspoon of turmeric powder.

Step two:
Then add some honey to the turmeric powder.

Step three:
Then grate a small piece of potato into the honey and turmeric. You can grate it directly into the bowl or do it separately, as you like it.

Step four:
Mix and muddle the grated potato well into honey and turmeric to make a nice exfoliating paste. You don’t have to add water to this mixture since potato contains a lot of moisture.

How to use:

Scrub regularly with this paste for around 8-10 minutes. Then, wash off with soap and warm water. You may find a little yellow stain on your skin but it will go away soon. This scrub is very effective and has removed darkness from my neck area. You can use it as often as you like but don’t forget to moisturise your skin. Please do a patch test before using this recipe, especially if you have sensitive skin. You can use this scrub even on your elbows and knees.

Benefits of turmeric powder:

• Acts as an antiseptic
• Helps in removing tan
• Works well on acne and scars
• Makes the skin glow

Benefits of honey:

• Acts as a moisturizer
• Softens the skin
• Adds a glow to the skin
• Helps fade blemishes

Benefits of potato:

• Prevents ageing of skin
• Removes tan and darkness
• Reduces dark patches
• Protects the skin
• Shrinks large pores

I am really happy with this DIY since it is showing a huge difference on my skin. I hope you will try it and like the results. Thank you. ?
