DIY Face Masks to Reduce Pigmentation

Overproduction of melanin on the skin results in hyperpigmentation or dark spots. However, dark spots are not a major concern and can easily be treated if treated early. Skin discolouration can range from brown to black, depending on the increasing melanin level. One of the most common reasons for dark spots is sun exposure. The harmful UV rays come in direct contact with your skin and create patches. These spots can develop anywhere, like the hands' face, back, arms, shoulder, and back. Other causes of dark spots include: 

  • Melasma 
  • Skin discolouration following a scrape or rash 
  • Melanosis 
  • Certain medications 
  • Pregnancy  
  • Liver disease  

Dark spots are not threatful to your life. So there's no compulsion or hurry to get rid of them, but it definitely needs proper treatment. Of course, you can easily treat dark spots at home; you only need to apply some natural DIY face packs on your skin. But, believe it or not, your kitchen always offers the best solution for any of your skin and health problems. You can also choose any plant-based pigmentation removal cream or serum like Rejusure's retinol anti-ageing moisturizer. It consists of Ayurvedic goodness, aloe vera, and shea butter and causes no side effect on your skin.
