Image result for lemon and sugar pictures
It's often very annoying when you have an uneven skin tone. I have been there. I once had a darker face and darker knuckles while the rest of my body were lighter. Even though it wasn't obvious, it was really annoying and kills confidence. The first thing I did, was to find the reason why I had an uneven skin tone and i realized that..

1. I wasn't caring much about my face like I do my body.

2. I wasn't using a good lotion for skin hence the darker knuckles. Please note that I wasn't bleaching.

I ditched the lotion and I started using Extra Virgin Olive Oil as my daily moisturizer and the knuckles clearly disappeared. This happened about a year ago before I started lemon/sugar scrub for my face.

Now I pamper my face and I'm very careful when it comes to using chemicals to treat any issue. I will always prefer the natural way hence the lemon and sugar scrub.

Do not be in a hurry to see results. From my discussion with some of my friends, I found out that people always want results the faster way hence they ignore taking care of themselves with nature's gifts but would rather spend millions on products that have little or no effect. Two ladies complained to me a week ago about how they spent #40,000 and #30,000 each, respectively on two different brands of products that gave them stretch marks even without giving them any positive result. They were deeply hurt (my heartfelt apologies to them). You can use lotions, shower gels and all. I use them too but always buy from a reputable company!.

Enough said, you can treat dark knuckles, elbows or knees with lemon and sugar scrub and to see results, you need to be patient and consistent. Why lemon and sugar? Because lemon has bleaching properties and sugar is used in exfoliation..

Reasons for dark knuckles include..

1. Dryness..

Exposing your hands to harsh chemicals or too much washing can lead to skin dryness which causes the knuckles to darken.

2. Lack of proper care..

Often we neglect our hands and feet when taking care of our body but these are places that need pampering more.

3. Skin diseases..

 Skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis can make your knuckles dark.

So make sure you keep these causes at bay when treating dark knuckles and if you also wish to treat dark knuckles once and not let them return,

1. Care for all parts of your body.

Don't wash your hands with extremely hot water. Clean them regularly with soft loofah and pumice stone.

2. Moisturize always after cleaning or shower/washing.

I have already talked about how to choose the right moisturizer for your skin type. Check my previous post to read.

3. Wear Sunscreen

These are daily tips to get rid of dark knuckles and have healthy looking and beautiful hands. Please note that the lemon and sugar scrub should be done 3 or 4 times a week. You don't have to do it everyday unless you have extremely dark knuckles then you can do it every night before bed, wash off in the morning and apply a hand cream.

For the lemon and sugar scrub,

Mix one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice with sugar until it forms a thick paste, then take as much as your fingers can contain and scrub the dark areas be it your face, knuckles, elbows or knees.

You see results from a week upwards. Remember to be patient while you on it.

Bonus tip: You can also achieve pink lips with this.

Hi guys, so with questions I get on how to lose weight, and how to gain weight, I believe this article would help in knowing what foods to eat or avoid; depending on what your body goals are. It’s important to know your BMI (Body Mass Index) first so you know if you’re underweight, overweight, or perfectly healthy. A BMI of 25.0 or more is overweight, while the healthy range is 18.5 to 24.9.


Hi guys, how are you? So, following my writeup on 17 THINGS MEN HATE IN A RELATIONSHIP , so many of my lovely ladies wanted me to write on what women also hate in a relationship too. I finally put them together! Dear men, it is important to note that just as you hate so many things in a relationship, women also do, and one of them is definitely not thinking that her feelings are important. So many men are led to believe that all a woman wants is money and gifts. To be honest, we love, and want these things, we do! But they’re never going to make up for things you’re not getting right. I hope you find this article helpful, and make necessary adjustments where you’re at fault so you can enjoy a real and meaningful relationship.


Image credit: The sun So yeah, before you ask if I'm gonna write 'What women hate in a relationship', yes I will, but for now let's talk about these stuff we women do without knowing that men hate them. Ask any man and he'll be sure to tell you that they hate these stuff about women. So knowing this, you can be a different kind of girl, and most importantly be a matured one. Let's get started: 1. SPYING. Oh yes! I bet you didn't know. It's okay to protect your man but don't go spying on him, looking for who's texting him and who he's texting. I used to do this until I realized one fact: he chose you, not them. If he wanted to be with other girls, he would, and not you. Spying gives you off as an insecure woman and that even drives him faster into the arms of another woman.. No man wants to feel caged. If you suspect he's cheating, best you can do is talk with him, or ask him questions. If you can't deal with it, then peacef
