Hola guys,wassup. If you guys are new here, welcome to my blog. My name is Chris and I’m a grooming and lifestyle blogger.
Hyperpigmentation appears as darkened patches or spots on the skin that make skin look uneven. The spots are known as age spots or sun spots andhyperpigmentation is also at the heart of skin conditions such as melasma and post-inflammatoryhyperpigmentation.It can take three to 24 months for PIH to fully fade,3 although in some cases it may take longer. The length of time it takes for PIH to fade depends on how dark the spot is compared to the surrounding skin.
I’ve personally suffered from hyperpigmentation and sun burn for long!. However finally I’ve been able to get rid of it completely. Here are some home made masks to help you achieve a flawless complexion at home.
1) raw milk treatment-
Start with a clean fresh face. Dip a cotton ball into a cup of raw milk and wipe your face with it. I advise raw cold milk , as milk helps to calm skin irritation and cold milk works better in doing so. Wait for about 5 minutes and wash off
Mix 1tbsp of multani mitti ,with 1/2 tbsp turmeric, tbsp tomato juice,1tbsp curd and 1tbsp potato juice. Mix it all together and apply it for about 45 mins. Avoid under eye area.
Multani mitti is a firming and detoxifying agent and will help to get rid of the top layer of dead skin on your face. Turmeric works as an anti bacterial agent reducing spreading and intensification of hyperpigmentation, tomato juice contain natural astringent properties make it ideal for clearing blemishes. As far as the dark spots on theskin are concerned, the high lycopene content present in tomatoes helps in lightening these stubborn spots. Potato juice helps lighten pigmentation while curd helps to polish and calm skin
Steam your face for about 8-9 mins and massage the face pack off with a cotton ball. Rinse with warm water
Apply a hydrating moisturizer
Eg- cerave, the ordinary, Cetaphil
Follow with a good sun block to avoid further darkening-
Eg- supergoop, regaliz sunblock etc
Apply twice a week for best results
There are a number of other cosmetic treatments as well in case of alergic hyperpigmentation
- Chemical peel.
- Laser peel.
- IPL therapy.
2) lemon facemask
Simply take 1tbsp lemon and tbsp honey mix it well . Apply for 15 mins
Take a slice of lemon and dip in finely grounded sugar and massage it over your face
now wash off the mask and sugar with warm water. Follow up with a hydrating moisturizer
3) orange peel pack
Take 1 tbsp of orange peel powder, mix it with 1 tbsp honey ,1 tbsp milk, 1tbsp sandle wood powder. Apply for 30 mins and wash of with warm water
