Home Remedies for Pigmentation

Home Remedies for Pigmentation:

Today we will talk about Pigmentation. Which is also known as brown patches or dark spots.

What is Pigmentation?

These are the black spots on your skin that occur due to an increase in the melanin production in the skin. Melanin is a pigment that helps u give color to the skin. The more the melanin quantity is, the darker Your skin will be, the less the melanin is, the lighter will be your skin tone. Pigmentation is not harmful but it affects your confidence level.

Pigmentation is of 2 types:

1) Hyperpigmentation
2) Hypopigmentation

1)Hyperpigmentation is an increase in the quantity of melanin production resulting in the blackening of the skin. Hyperpigmentation also occurs if you are not using sunscreen and your skin is exposed to the sun.
The example of hyperpigmentation is Melasma.

2)Hypopigmentation is the decrease in the quantity of Melanin. which results in white spots on the skin. whereas hyperpigmentation results in dark spots.

Reasons behind the Pigmentation:

It may occur due to:
1) Hormonal Imbalance
2) An allergic reaction of some Medicine resulting in pigmentation
3) Dehydration,
4) Bad Food Choices like sugary items
5)  bad carbs
6) Not using sunscreen before going out

 Treatment of Pigmentation:

The treatments Which going to tell you will be home-based and time taking. as pigmentation does not occur in a single day, hence its treatment will also take some time to be resolved. Clinically it can be treated by LASER, CHEMICAL PEELING, or DERMABRASION. which is expensive and is not affordable for everyone.
So, the home remedies will help in quick results.

The  biggest Culprit is "Whitening Creams" which are full of Steroids. The harmful chemicals in these creams start "Thinning your Skin", and the time comes when it starts damaging your skin. hence resulting in brown patches and dark spots on your skin.

So, avoid using these "Whitening Creams" But Remember, Do not stop using these creams instantly, instead, if you are using it twice a day, start using it once a day and if you are applying it once a day, start using it 2 or 3 times a week, and so on.

Do not go out without applying sunscreen on your skin whatever the weather is. And yes, apply sunscreen at day time, not night time.

 Consult your doctor if some medicine is resulting in pigmentation. Increase your Water Intake, Include Vegetables and fresh fruits in your food because your internal health is also important as your external one. If your internal system is full of impurities, u will never get the results on your external skin. so don't forget to drink "Detox Water".

I will suggest you Consult your Dermatologist for the quick results and follow the treatment prescribed by your Dermatologist.
"Dermaroller" is also effective and gives quick results.

Home remedy to treat Pigmentation:
By using these four ingredients which are easily available at your home and if not, u may buy them easily.

 The 1st Remedy is "Castor Oil"

CASTOR OIL helps to control excess production of Melanin in your skin results in the removal of pigmentation and dark spots.

The method to use castor oil is, take a little amount of CASTOR OIL on a cotton bud and apply it on the pigmented or dark-spotted areas in dabbing motion.

Apply it 2 times in a day and no need to wash it off. The skin will absorb the Oil and u may see the results in few days.

The 2nd Remedy is "Potato Juice"

Take 1 Potato, grate it and then squeeze it and u will get potato juice. Take 2tbsp of Potato Juice and 1tsp of Lemon Juice. Mix it well and apply it once on the pigmented areas or u may apply it on the full face. Leave it on for 20- 30mins on your skin and wash it off. You have to do this every day without giving a gap.

Potato juice has got skin lightening properties and it consists of minerals and vitamins. which removes dark spots, pigmentation, and blemishes.

The 3rd remedy is "Apple Cider Vinegar" (ACV):

Take 1tbsp of ACV and 2tbsp of water. Mix it well and apply it on the pigmented areas. Repeat this remedy every day once. U may also put it in a spray bottle and use it as a toner. Spray this toner on your face and it will reduce other skin issues as well rather than Pigmentation.

The 4th remedy is the use of "VITAMIN C" & E" SERUM:

These both serums are very effective for your dark spots, pigmentation, and skin lightening. I'd recommend you to buy the serum which has both Vitamin E and Vitamin C. For e.g. the "OZ Naturals" serum has both Vitamins in it.

But if u don’t have a serum with both vitamins. then simply take a Vitamin C serum of any brand and apply it on your face and after the Vitamin C serum absorbs in your skin take Vitamin E oil (EVION) rub it between your hands and apply it on your face in a dabbing motion.

So, by doing this your skin will get the effects of both Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
