10 Tips How to Get Rid of Face Pigmentation – Update with More Information.

Many different remedies exist that help eliminate birthmarks and face pigmentation. Some of them can be found right in your kitchen. Here we will discuss 15 things you can do to help avoid face pigmentation.

1) You can mix a few drops of lemon juice with cream and apply this mixture to your face for a few minutes. This will create a natural acne treatment and an effective duller of skin discoloration.

2)Try exfoliating your skin with oatmeal, milk, and brown sugar and mixing it in equal parts. This is useful for cleansing the skin from dead cells; it can also lighten sun-caused pigmentation spots.

3)Pour lemon juice onto basil leaves. This is great for getting rid of pigmentation marks and dark circles that may have been a long-time problem. Place them all around your face and your skin should lighten up.

4)Almonds are considered to be one of the best remedies for tan spots. First you will need to soak the almonds overnight. Then, after grinding them, add milk to create a paste. Apply the paste to the places where you have dark spots.

5)Try boiling cumin seeds and then washing your face with the water afterwards. This will wash away unwanted marks, thereby making your skin more beautiful.

6)Once a month you can try bleaching the affected area. There are numerous creams and lotions you can use for this, but you will need to try different ones to see which one works best for you.

7)Dilute some vinegar in water and apply to the face. Rinse and let it dry on its own. The acetic acid is the element in vinegar that will help you reduce that dark coloring.

8)Grind up some dried orange peels and mix them with a little water. Then apply the resulting paste to the face. This should easily clear up face pigmentation, and even better, it may help you eliminate some pimples, if you have any.

9)Always use sunscreens with at least 15 SPF if you are prone to skin pigmentation. The sun is always harsh on sensitive skin, even when it may be cold outside. Sunscreen is the first step to preventing hyper-pigmentation.

10)Grind up banana and guava into a paste. Apply it all around the face. This will decrease the of pigmentation and improve the overall feel of the skin.

11)Apply lime (nimbu) to the affected area, and after 15 minutes wash it off. This needs to be done on a daily basis. You could also apply it overnight once in a while; then wash it off the next morning.

12)Some foods to avoid if you have face pigmentation: coffee, tea, chocolate, ice cream, pastries, toffees, acidic things, spices called garam masala. Also, it is not advisable to use cosmetics that are chemical based on your face.

    Satisfy My Soul Says:
    Hyper-pigmentation is one of the MOST embarrassing skin problem a woman can have on her face. I have been dealing with it since late 2008 and it's extremely difficult to treat and not to mention all the steps needed to NOT hyper-pigment any more. I have spent a fortune on my face since late 08. I think I'm finally beginning to see results using azeliac acid soap, fresh lemon twice a day and hydroquinone 4 percent at night and of course keeping the skin very well moisturized with clinique moisturizer and drinking lots of water. To get to this point I tried so many things that I'm not sure whats working but I can't just sit and wait for weeks or months. I would feel like I'm doing absolutely nothing to help my problem. Before this I was so so happy with life and now the confidence that use to pour out of my veins is gone. I just need and MUST have it back! I have done 3 glycolic peels and 2 tca peels. The down time with peels really sucks but I feel these steps MUST be taken to achieve clear skin again; even if I don't see the results after I'm completely peeled. Also, from so much research that I have done I truly don't recommend any type of laser. As a matter of fact this is why I'm so hyper-pigmented. It's truly unfortunate I didn't do my research before. So the BEST piece of advice I could give is ALWAYS wear sunblock rain or shine, stay out of the sun and don't give up.

    In women, it is hormonal. Many women get it while pregnant and is also called a "pregnancy mask" or melasma. I first got it when on birth control pills, tI switched around the pills and it went away, came back then quit I using them entirely iand t went away when I quit. Then I had a hysterectomy (in 2003) and went on synthetic estrogen and it came back with a vengeance! It is on both sides of my face and forehead. I asked the dermatologist about laser, microdermabrasion, retin A, (anything!)and Hydroquinone cream the over the counter "age spot fader". His response: based on the layer of the skin with the hyperpigmentation, none of these things will work. He said to try the cream but NEVER to use it longer than 8 weeks because 1) if it hasn't worked by then, it won't work and 2) using it more than 8 weeks could actually damage the area making it DARKER. I have now switched to bioidentical hormones and am hoping to see some difference.

I hope it should bring some changes if not i'll go for ur tips.....
