17 Best Natural Tips for Dark Knuckles (Dark Joints)

Dark knuckles are a common occurrence and require adequate skin care to treat them. Some skin problems, dead skin cells, external factors, inadequate care of hands and feet and excessive use of cosmetics are the main causes of Dark Knuckles.

The melanin protects the skin from the ultraviolet rays and reduces the chances of tanning.
