Home Remedy For Pigmentation

There is a strong link between pigmentation and old age. There is also a strong link between the skin condition and exposure to sunlight. As you expose your skin to the sun, the effect of the sunlight on you starts giving your skin a rather tainted look.  Aged individuals have low immunity and this makes it possible for the sun to penetrate more into their skin. When this happens, the sun will bring about a mutation of the melanocytes. This mutation causes the reduction in the production of the melanin.  The little melanin produced by the cells will spread unevenly on your skin. This is sure to lead to the condition known as pigmentation on the skin. Pigmentation can come up on just any part of the skin.

Any negative effect?

Pigmentation is mostly known to be associated with old age, but it had also been discovered that it can come up on those who are younger. Anyone having the skin condition can decide to leave it on the skin; since pigmentation does not in anyway lead to skin cancer. But some individuals may want to get rid of the pigmentation for cosmetics reasons. This write up will look into a very effective method that can be used to rid your skin of this condition. You can even carry out the described method right at home.

Topical creams

The use of topical cream can be very helpful against pigmentation, all you need to do is to simply buy any of the topical creams over the counter and you can apply it to the skin condition to get it removed. The topical creams are made using lightening agents. The lightening agent in the cream will help to lighten the pigmentation and restore your skin back to its normal color.

In most cases, the lightening agent in the creams is hydroquinone. This lightening agent is one of the most useful bleaching agents. While it is helpful to return your skin to normal, hydroquinone can also have its own negative impact on your skin. This can only happen if the concentration of hydroquinone in the cream is more than the normal amount.

They can leave a person dealing with yet another skin condition in addition to hyperpigmentation.

Problems with uneven skin tone can be addressed with preventative measures and left to heal naturally. The most common cause of this problem is exposure to ultraviolet rays.

  • Turmeric Powder: It has many healing qualities and has been shown to help with problems of uneven skin tones. A facemask of turmeric powder and fresh dairy cream is the ideal delivery of the healing properties of turmeric. The facemask should be applied to clean skin and left for 10 to 15 minutes until it dries. It should then be washed off with cold water and a mild moisturizing cream applied. This procedure should be carried out once or twice daily.
  • Honey face cream: another natural way to deal with hyperpigmentation is using honey. Honey has been known to remedy many skin problems for many years when taken orally or applied on the skin. To use it as a treatment for hyperpigmentation, it should be mixed with lemon juice and yoghurt. The mixture should then be applied on the face and left for 10 to 15 minutes than washed off with cold water.

Best Sunblock For Pigmentation

The sun can get too much most times and this can lead to one form of negative effect or the other on the skin. In order to prevent excessive sunshine to fall directly on your skin, there are some things you can do. One of such things involves the use of sunblock. A sunblock is very helpful in preventing the UV ray from the sun from penetrating into your skin. Penetration of the UV ray can cause damage to your skin cells. One important skin cell normally affected by the sun is called melanocytes. Melanocytes are responsible for the production of melanin, which is the skin pigmentation that is responsible for the coloration of the skin.  Once the UV rays have damaged the melanocytes, its production of melanin will become distorted. This will lead to the formation of pigmentation on the skin. In order to prevent this pigmentation, you can always put your trust in sunblocks to help protect your skin.

Many products abound

There are several sunblock products out there on the market. Many companies are making the product and it may be somewhat challenging to point to any one of them as the best among the pack.  But there are some things you can do to identify the best among the lot. Some of the things will be looked into in this write up.

Check the reviews

In order to choose the best among the lots of sunblocks available on the market, you need to check out what the reviews are saying about these products. If the reviews are positive, then you can always go for the product. Many sites are making such reviews available and you can always consult any of them to find out about how effective any of the sunblock products had been on other individuals who must have used them. If the reviews are positive, you can decide to go for the particular product. But if the reviews are not so positive, find out the level of negativity. If it is just about 70% to 780% positive, you can still trust in the product.

Conclusion

You can also ask other individuals around you who must have used any of the sun bock products before. Ask them if the particular one they used never had any negative effect on them.  It is also important to carry your dermatologist along before you use any sunblock product. This is because your skin may react differently to any particular product.
