Skin discolouration which occurs in the exposed parts of the body is generally darker than the background skin. What we know as freckles, is also a form of skin discolouration. Apart from this, the other forms of skin discolouration are age marks, birthmarks, dark moles, etc. and we are all very familiar with their appearance. Vitiligo is another form of discolouration wherein the patch is lighter than the background skin.
Excessive exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun is one of the chief causes of skin discolouration. Although a certain amount of sunlight is necessary for us in order that we have our daily quota of Vitamin D, the UV rays of the sun can cause much damage not only to our skin but also the eyes.
Apart from this, there are other causes for skin discolouration as well. Melasma, wherein parts of the face are covered with dark irregular patches, is due to hormonal disorders and can occur among women on oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy. Here again, sunlight is a triggering factor.
Normal ageing is another cause of hyperpigmentation in some cases. This occurs because the body is no longer able to control pigmentation as well as it used to. Vitiligo is a form of skin depigmentation, caused by dysfunction of the pigment cells. Deficiency of certain nutrients in the body can also cause skin discolouration. Certain illnesses such as chickenpox can also leave dark marks on the skin.
There are several natural ways in which you can bring back the original colour and texture of your skin, using substances available at home:
First and foremost, eating a well balanced diet, rich in all classes of foods, is a must, for proper skin care. Nuts, seeds, fish, legumes, etc. are all rich in minerals and vitamins Have plenty of all kinds of fruits and vegetables, and also plenty of water.
Spraying or wiping the skin with juices of fruits such as lime or lemon, helps to remove dead skin cells from the surface, thus, bringing back the original colour. Freckles are also cleared by this process.
Olive oil is another great remedy for discoloured skin. It softens the dead cells, which can then be removed by wiping off. Almond oil is also similarly useful.
Aloe vera gel with its rich supply of nutrients, is a great skin rejuvenator and can help a great deal in restoring skin colour.
Extract the juice of a bunch of parsley, add some red currant juice to it, and apply on a freckled skin. The discolouration will disappear very soon with regular treatment.
Washing the face with milk is another great way of softening the dead cells and removing them, thus helping the skin regain its original colour.
Cucumber or apricot masks are other natural ways of treating the skin for restoration of colour.
