Pigmentation on the face

March 8, 2017 / No comments / in Skin Care / by avacareadmin

These days a common problem that one sees on both men and women is pigmentation on the face… It is especially common in pregnant women, women who are taking oral contraceptives and women taking hormone replacement therapy during menopause. It can also occur as a result of thyroid dysfunction.

Sun exposure, following the use of deodorant soaps, scented toiletries, and various cosmetics can also produce pigmentation. We never really think that the products we are using could cause pigmentaion when exposed to the sun…, but it does… This is called phototoxic reaction and is due to ultraviolet radiation being absorbed by the chemical substance on the skin. This can happen to both men and women. Be careful with the products you choose, in fact if you are facing a pigmentation  problem  you may want to re think your face creams etc.

Pigmentation develops due to a combination of genetic, hormonal and sun related factors…

Once in a way treat yourself to a home spa? but please don’t think miracles happen over night.. Everything takes time to show results..

Grate raw papaya and extract the juice out of it. Apply on the pigmented area.. Wash off after 15 minutes.

Milk and almonds…soak almonds overnight. Remove the skin ( I actually eat a few ?) and form a paste with milk cream or milk. Apply on the pigmented areas.

Mash avocadoes into a paste and apply on the pigmented area.

Peel a potato and add a few drops of water on its surface, and then rub it on your skin to reduce pigmentation marks. Potato juice helps in lightening pigmentation marks on skin.

Avoid excessive sun exposure. Apply a sunscreen every day, with minimum SPF of 30. Reapply the sunscreen every three hours if you are out in the open. This is one point we always forget to do.
