Dark knuckles is a common issue most women face when they change their body lotion or cream. It can also be associated with poor grooming of our hands and feet.

Women with dark knuckles lack the confidence to wear fashion accessories due to public ridicule and stigmatization.

According to research, dryness can cause dark knuckles. Skin tends to become dry when your hands and feet are exposed to harsh chemicals or too much washing. This often leads to darkening of knuckles. Certain skin diseases like psoriasis and eczema tend to make your knuckles dark.
