Many of us women are plagued with pigmentation issues at some point in our adult lives. Also known as ‘uneven skin tone,’ pigmentation occurs when our bodies produce extra melanin — the substance that gives our skin its colour.
The result: dark patches that appear mostly on our faces. There are certain factors that increase pigmentation like sun exposure, the use of contraceptive pills and even pregnancy.
Pigmentation that occurs during pregnancy is commonly referred to as ‘pregnancy mask.’ The good news is this ‘mask’ usually fades away months after giving birth.
There are many remedies in the market that address pigmentation. However, Mother Nature also has some great natural remedies that are proven to reduce pigmentation.
Why go to a spa when you can find all these remedies in your pantry and fridge?
A word of caution — before you apply anything on your face, it is best to try applying a bit of it on the inside of your wrist to check for allergies and reactions.
