Hyper pigmentation can cause lot of distress among women. The disorder surfaces with dark patches on certain areas of the face and body. Hyper pigmentation is the result of over production of melanin in the skin. It can be triggered due to excessive exposure to sun, imbalances in hormones and some medical conditions.
Unfortunately, hyper pigmentation is more common on the facial skin, even though they can appear anywhere on the skin. It can play havoc with your confidence and can cause a lot of heartache and distress. The good news is that hyper pigmentation can be treated at home very effectively.
Home Care For Hyper Pigmentation
1. Honey And Milk
This is one of the simplest home remedies available for treating hyper pigmentation. Mix some honey along with milk and apply on your pigmented skin. Leave it for half an hour. Using a warm and wet towel, wipe it off. Milk is a natural exfoliant and removes the top layer of pigmented skin with continuous application.
The lactobacillus in curd can do wonders for cleansing your skin and leaving it moist and bright. Curd too acts almost in the same manner as milk by giving an exfoliating treatment for your pigmented skin and leaving it clear and even toned.
3. Vitamin E
Vitamin E is the shortcut for achieving great looking skin. For skin that is hyper pigmented and patchy, take some vitamin E oil on your palm and massage firmly in circular motions. Continue for 15 minutes every day. Leave the oil for a couple of hour and wipe off. Doing this every day will do away with the pigmentation and also leave your skin revitalized and wonderfully soft.
Avocados are rich in vitamin E and hence a good remedy for hyper pigmented skin. Avocados are also famed for its skin lightening power. Mash some avocados to form a smooth paste. Add some honey or milk to make it smoother. Apply on the pigmented skin and leave it for half an hour. Do this twice a day for best results. In a month’s time, you will have greater and more even skin tone. Continue application until all the hyper pigmentation is taken care of.
Another rich source of vitamin E, almonds can be consumed every day for great looking skin. For making a scrub out of almonds, soak some almonds overnight. In the morning, crush them to form a coarse paste and add some milk to it. Massage this on the area of hyper pigmentation. Massage in circular motion for 15 minutes and leave it on for an hour or so before wiping it away.
Oatmeal is rich in vitamin E as well. A face pack can be prepared with oatmeal powder for treating hyper pigmented skin. Take adequate amounts of oatmeal powder and add some milk and honey as well in order to form a thick paste. Apply the paste on the affected skin and allow it to dry completely. Continue treatment for a month and the pigmentation would have lightened considerably.
