Nowadays skin pigmentation, where dark patches appear on the skin, is extremely common. Pollution, sun damage and the use of chemical products produce melanin which is the principal cause of skin pigmentation. If not treated, skin pigmentation can get worse and damage the skin in many different ways. Here are our top tips to help treat skin pigmentation and invigorate your skin.
Potato to fight skin pigmentation
The humble potato not only makes delicious tasty food (the carb-lover in us can’t get enough) but also contains a natural bleaching agent, which makes it one of the best ways to banish skin pigmentation. Simply chop a raw potato, rub in a circular motion onto your face and leave overnight. If you incorporate this into your new beauty regime every night for a week, you will noticeably see a difference. It really couldn’t be easier!
Tomato and oatmeal face mask
Forget supermarket face masks and instead see what is lurking in your cupboards to make your own. Tomato contains lightening properties, whilst coarse oatmeal can produce the perfect exfoliator. Combine the two together and you arguably have the perfect face mask – albeit it may not smell quite as nice as your shop bought ones! Mix one tablespoon of tomato juice, one tablespoon of yoghurt and two tablespoons of yoghurt to form a thick gloopy natural paste. Apply for 25 minutes and wash off with warm water afterwards. In no time you have super smooth skin and can say goodbye to dark patches.
Almonds and milk paste
Almonds contain vitamin E which acts as a mild antioxidant that your skin is screaming out for. Almond milk paste is one of the oldest tricks in the books when it comes to home skin remedies and pigmentation. Almonds not only contain a natural bleaching agent, but when combined with milk, creates a slightly coarse scrubbing agent. All you need to do is leave a handful of almonds soaking overnight in water, then add a drop of milk in the morning and smother over your face for 20 minutes.
