5 Easy Home Remedies For Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation-On-Face

Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition where brown to gray-brown patches appear on the face. While the exact cause is not known, exposure to the sun is considered a trigger.

How Can You Prevent It?

While there is no guaranteed cure for hyperpigmantation, you can prevent it to a great extent by protecting yourself adequately from the sun.Wearing a sunscreen every day and reapplying it every two hours, wearing wide-brimmed hats when outside are believed to give you the protection you need.

Home Remedies

1) Lemon Juice

The acidic nature of lemon juice, along with vitamin C, help remove the outer layer of the skin–the hyperpigmented skin in this case–thus making it a natural skin lightener.

How To Use

  • Extract the juice from one fresh lemon.
  • Apply it on the affected areas and gently rub it around for one minute.
  • Leave it on for about 15 minutes.
  • Rinse it off with lukewarm water.
  • Use twice a day for three weeks.

2) Apple Cider Vinegar

How To Use

  • Mix one part apple cider vinegar and one part water.
  • Apply this solution on the melasma spots and allow it to air dry.
  • Rinse it off with lukewarm water.
  • Gently pat dry the skin.
  • Use once a day.

3) Turmeric

The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. It has antioxidant and skin-lightening properties. Turmeric can also reduce the melanin content in the skin and help fight hyperpigmentation.

How To Use

  • Mix five tablespoons of turmeric powder with 10 tablespoons of milk to make a paste. (Use whole milk as it has lactic acid and calcium that help exfoliate and soften the skin)
  • Add one tablespoon of gram flour to thicken the mixture.
  • Apply this paste evenly on the affected area.
  • Allow it to dry keeping it for 20 minutes.
  • Rinse it off with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.
  • Do it once every day.

4) Aloe Vera

How To Use

  • Cut open an aloe vera leaf and extract the fresh gel.
  • Apply the gel thoroughly on the affected area and gently massage for one or two minutes.
  • Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Then wash it off with lukewarm water.
  • Do this twice a day for a few weeks.

5) Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a natural exfoliating agent. It can effectively remove brown spots on the face and dissolve dead skin.

How To Use

  • Mix together two tablespoons of oatmeal powder, two tablespoons of milk and one tablespoon of honey.
  • Apply it on the affected area.
  • Wait 20 minutes and rub off the mixture with water.
  • Pat the face dry with a clean towel.
  • Do this twice or thrice a week for a month.
