1st stage

The first stage involved in getting rid of dark knuckles is 2 weeks of intensive care.

Product: The products to use at this stage include TCA, Gloves and Grace Duo Serum

Routine: Rub the Grace Duo Serum and TCA on knuckles twice or thrice a day

While going to bed at night, apply the grace duo serum and ensure that you have a glove on to serve as an occlusion. Apply both the big and small bottle of Grace Duo Serum. Note that the big bottle should be used as cleanser for the knuckles while the smaller bottle should be applied like a lotion.  Never apply TCA  and then use gloves; it will result in serious skin burns since it is a chemical.

Peeling stage

The second stage is also known as the peeling stage.

Products: The product to use at this stage include Menotone, Tretinoin and Gloves

Routine: Immediately you observed that the hand has started peeling, then it is time to apply Menotone  and Tretinoin, while doing this, Please always put on your sunscreen especially in the afternoons, you are more sensitive to sunlight because of  Tretinoin.  Medical practitioners have even advice that it should only be use at night times. At night, go to bed with TretinoinMenotone and with Gloves on.

3rd stage

 Maintenance

The third stage is basically the maintenance stage.

Products: the products that are used at this stage include TretinoinMenotone and Scrub.

Routine: As soon as your hands have fully peeled off, and your knuckles are no more sore or sensitive. At that point you can begin to use a scrub. Scrub your hand at least twice a day to stop dead skin cell from accumulating, you then rub Tretinoin  andMenotone , note that Tretinoin should be used only at night. Wearing of Gloves to bed at this stage may be reduced to just 2 or 3 times in a week. Also consider applying the Grace Duo Serum twice a week for maintenance.

On a final note, this is the routine we have to make do with for now, I’m already working-in conjunction with a specialist in order to come up with a routine that is far less demanding and more efficient for dark knuckles. See what we’re working on below:

 However, for the time being, I want to ask for your input. Have you found any better way of treating dark knuckles? Please drop your comments and contribution below and I will continue to rework this blog posts until we come up with the most efficient and the perfect routine for permanently treating dark knuckles. Thank you!

P.s. keep hand away from harsh chemical, wash hands after using a skin lightening product/cream on body.
