Dark neck: How to get rid of it?


Dark neck, or black neck, is a common problem, especially in Malaysia. Many men and women, even children suffer from this issue. Even more, some people have the same issue at various skin folds such as armpits, elbows, knees, knuckles, and ankles. So, what exactly is dark neck and why does it crop up?


Dark neck is when your neck has a different tone than the rest of your body. Some people may also notice that their necks are thicker and have a velvety texture. This could be due to many reasons, including:


Frequent exposure to sunlight

Certain medications

Not washing your neck properly during showers

Buildup of dead skin cells, oil, sweat, and dirt

Underlying conditions


There are many ways to reduce and prevent this issue. First of all, if it is itchy or painful, it is important to see a doctor. But if it isn’t, simple lifestyle changes may help to address the issue.


Make sure you eat a balanced diet that is rich in antioxidants.

Make sure you wash the affected skin thoroughly with soap and water every time you shower

Use sunscreen when you go out

Exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells

Use products that are not harsh on your skin
