How to Cure Skin Pigmentation Naturally: 10 Home Remedies for Dark Skin Pigmentation Treatment

Natural treatments and home remedies help to cure dark skin pigmentation effectively. You can try the following home remedies and natural treatments to cure skin pigmentation naturally.

Many people have problems with pigmentation in their skin. Most are caused by a condition called hyperpigmentation, which occurs when the body produces too much melanin. If you are looking for some natural and safe way of treating it, opt for some home remedies for pigmentation.

Home Remedies for Dark Skin Pigmentation Treatment

  1. Lemon is a natural bleaching agent which acts to fade the dark blemishes away from your face. Rub the lemon juice on hyperpigmented skin and leave it for a while. After few minutes, wash the face with water. Use this remedy for few months and you will see that the skin is lightening gradually.
  2. Onion also plays a same role as lemon juice does in treating with the skin pigmentation. The way to use onion on the affected skin all you have to do is to make a slice of red onion and put it on the affected area. Onion helps as an extracting agent because it naturally contains peeling extract that can encourage a cell turnover and reduce damaging of the skin.
  3. Take some fresh cream and add in a few drops of lemon then apply to your face for a few minutes and you have an instant pimple remover/pigmentation duller!
  4. Cocoa butter can be used as a massage agent to lighten the hyperpigmentation or patches of darker skin. It will not only moisturize your face but massaging the affected area with cocoa butter in night increase circulation and help break down the scar tissues to reduce the hyper pigmentation on the face.
  5. Vinegar has good lightening as well as astringent properties. One way to use this is by making a vinegar rinse. Mix vinegar with equal amounts of water and use it rinse your face. Don’t wash it off after.
  6. Mash banana and guava together and apply this paste on the effected areas. Wash off after 15-20 minutes. Follow this everyday. The lycopene in the guava and the exfoliating properties of the banana together will lead to skin lightening.
  7. Potato has natural bleaching properties, which is why it is excellent for lightening patches and blemishes as well as darkened skin. Cut a potato into thin slices and place them on the affected area for 20 to 30 minutes.
  8. Application of a paste of green papaya also helps cure skin pigmentation. It contains an enzyme papain, which exfoliates and cleanses the skin, thereby relieving skin pigmentation.
  9. Orange peel should be dried and powdered and mixed with some raw milk to prepare a paste which can be used on the face or any part of the body. This helps to remove the top layer of the skin and as such makes the spots to fade.

Coming back to award you a vote up.

My name is Lena and I'm 33 years old. I had problems of skin hyper pigmentation and I can say that it's really hard to have something that you feel unconfortable with...

That's why I put in my head that I had to finish with this issue to feel confortable and gain self esteem. After trying some creams, products and treatments (that doesn't gave me good results)... searching trought internet, finally found a method that worked! It was amazing. After 4 weeks doing it I had some good results and I am very happy with it!

I want to share with all of you the site I found because I know how hard it's to be affected with skin issues. Here it is:

Here you will find a naturally effective solution to any skin issues you might be facing. If this could help only to one of you (I hope that more) I will be happy to having shared my history :)
