Home Remedies for Treatment for Pigmentation on Face

Posted by sunainaram on September 18th, 2015

There’s a pigment called melanin produced in the skin cells. This pigment determines the skin colour. Darker skin tones have more of this pigment while lighter tone faces have less of this pigment. Sometimes, the production of this pigment gets erratic and results in uneven skin tone on the face and other parts of the body. Pigmentation can also be caused during pregnancy, hormone imbalance, ultra violet radiation or due to contact with certain chemicals. In worst conditions, it causes splotches of colour on the face. Though this condition is not fatal, it can give a fatal blow to one’s self confidence. There are plenty of home remedies that can be used as treatment for pigmentation of face.

Any household will surely have a supply of potatoes. When you’re cutting potatoes for a meal save a slice or two for yourself. Take a thick slice of potato and rub it over the areas of the face where you have pigmentation problems. If you feel that the potato is a little dry, you can sprinkle a little water on it. You can also use mix potato and lemon juice (equal amounts) and apply it on the affected areas. You will see visible results after regular application for a month.

Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is commonly used in the treatment for pigmentation. This fleshy leaf contains mucilaginous polysaccharides that helps lighten dark spots on your face. When you cut the leaf, you can see a thick gel or juice. Apply it on the affected areas on the face. Wash your face in warm water after 15 minutes. Regular application will surely bring about good results.

Almond and Honey
Almond and honey is another tried and tested home remedy for treatment for pigmentation on face. Make a rough paste of almonds and mix some honey with it. Apply this pack on the affected areas on the skin. The mild bleaching properties of almond reduce hyper pigmentation. It also acts as a scrubbing agent.

Orange Peel
Don’t throw away the peel after you eat the orange. The peel is a rich source of Vitamin C, which acts as a natural bleach. Dry the peel in shade, powder it and then add to milk or honey and apply as a face mask. You will get good results soon.

These home remedies for skin pigmentation treatment are effective in mild conditions. If you have severe skin pigmentation on face, take treatment in a reputed skin care clinic.
