Pigmentation is a condition where skin turns black, white, pink or red in the color. There are many reasons as why skin changes its color but some of the most common ones are as follows:
Excessive exposure to the sunlight
Skin reaction with harsh chemicals (This usually happens when a certain ingredient of a beauty product doesn’t suit your skin type)
Skin infection and inflammation
Microdermabrasion or chemical peeling
Symptoms of hyper pigmentation
The most common symptom of hyper pigmentation is that the affected area looks different than the rest the body. If your skin tone is pale or whitish, the pink color of affected area will usually be so noticeable in day light. Sometimes, you can’t easily find out the affected area as it’s either grey or white in color and is less noticeable except when is exposed to the light. So if you really want to find out some real flaws of your skin, you should watch yourself in mirror in front of a window through which daylight passes in the room. Here are three symptoms of hyper pigmentation:
- Pigmented skin may feel rough and dull to the touch
- The area may turn red, pink, grey, white or brown
- The pigmented skin looks different in color from other body parts
Treatments of Hyper pigmentation
Believe it or not, natural products or ingredients are best to treat hyper pigmentation. Though there are plenty of over-the-counter products that you can use to get good results but the organic items that we use in kitchen are even much effective if you have a faith in the power of nature.
Aloe Vera and Chamomile
Aloe Vera has been used as a main component in the formulation of high-end beauty creams. When these creams can work even they contain a preserved form of aloe Vera then just imagine how much effective would the fresh extract of the herb be. Instead of buying aloe Vera in a cream or gel form, you need to get a fresh extract from the leaves; you can get fresh leaves from any local farm easily. Though the ingredient can alone be used to treat sun-burned skin but you need to make a mixture of it with another popular herbal extract known as chamomile. Chamomile is extracted from a flower. Combine one tablespoon of aloe gel with one spoon of chamomile to make your own cream. Apply it on your face daily before going to bed and wait for at least one week to see some effects.
Aloe Vera and chamomile when are together can also treat severe fire burns so if you have got scars anywhere on your skin while cooking or frying something, you can apply the mixture on the area to treat the pigmentation as well as wound.
