Target for elimination: skin pigmentation
It is an enemy I have an ongoing battle with in order to banish it from my face once and for all. Unfortunately, it comes right back like a boomerang and I have to constantly come up with new ideas to get rid of the pigmentation.
Today, I would like to introduce to you my most effective methods for pigmentation removal. Obviously, I skip treatments such as laser pigmentation removal and will focus on the at home methods — often equally effective yet much cheaper which will certainly be an advantage to all women dealing with this particular problem.
Where does pigmentation come from?
To begin with, I must say something about the cause behind the creation of pigmentation. The case is pretty obvious that the spots on skin are most of all a result of careless exposure to the sun, that is why it is most common to appear in the summer. However, for some women, the pigmentation has nothing to do with the season of the year because it may be caused also by pregnancy, hormonal contraception, diseases or drugs.
At home methods for pigmentation
Before you start panicking, try proven methods for pigmentation which are ingredients present in almost every home and that can lighten skin and even skin complexion.
- Ascorbic acid/vitamin C
Vitamin present mostly in citrus is a substance which effectively inhibits melanin production and it is the pigment responsible for the skin darkening. Home made cosmetics for skin care with vitamin C allow you to lighten skin and noticeably eliminate all skin changes.
- Glycolic acid
It is an ingredient you should look for in cosmetics as well or add it to your home made balms as a semi-finished product. It is an exfoliating substance, so it allows you to quickly get rid of the dead skin cells from the skin surface. It includes the dark and pigmented skin cells.
The best cosmetics intended for pigmentation
Here’s my subjective short list of cosmetic products you can buy if you do not want to go into the preparation of your own face masks. The below propositions helped me on many occasions.
- Caudalie Paris, Vinoperfect, Serum Eclat Anti-Taches — expensive yet very effective lightening serum with grape extract.
- Mincer Pharma, Vita C Infusion — more affordable and easier to get option while being equally effective due to the high concentration of vitamin C.
