This is a problem that occurs very commonly and women especially are concerned about it. The problem of skin pigmentation manifests itself in the form of light or dark patches of skin coming up on many places, especially the face.
Though skin pigmentation is not a serious problem, it is so visible that people are subject to a lot of embarrassment due to this in the form of staring, unwanted advice and questions asked about it.
Normally skin pigmentation is caused by exposure to sun or due to allergic reactions. It is also likely that if your parents and grandparents suffered from this problem, then you too could be prone to it. But the thing is not to despair as there are many home remedies to help attack the problem. Here are some:
- Potato power: Potatoes pack a punch with regard to lightening of skin. Slice a potato (raw) and then put a few drops of water on it. Rub the juice that comes out on the area that is pigmented. In case you have time to spare then you could grate and squeeze the juice of potato to apply on the skin. You need to leave this for 30 minutes and then rinse off. Do this for 4-6 weeks to see results.
- Lemon and cucumber: Both are skin lightening agents and when combined can do wonders. Apply twice daily and leave for it to be effective. Even used individually these two ingredients are good for the skin.
