How to Prevent Pigmentation After Pimples

How to Prevent Pigmentation After Pimples

Sometimes excessive oil gets trapped and stuck in the pores of your skin. If this persists, it leads to the eruption of pimples, an extremely uncomfortable and nagging problem that plagues, both men and women indiscriminately. The most distressing part about pimples, apart from their unavoidable presence on the face is the mark they inevitably leave behind, the remnants which refuse to disappear. Pigmentation after pimples is a common phenomenon, one that often requires medical intervention to remove them.

However, there are various ways by which you can avoid pigmentation after pimples, some of them are:

  1. Sunscreen: The benefits of sunscreen require little introduction. They not only protect the skin from the harmful ultraviolet rays, but they also help in fading away the marks left behind by pimples. It is strongly recommended that if you want to accelerate the process of recuperation, you must make it a point to apply sunscreen daily without fail.
  2. Exfoliation: This refers to a procedure that removes the covering of the old skin and brings to the fore the fresh layer of skin. With increasing age and growing skin problems, exfoliation has emerged as the most preferred choice for most women. In fact there are multiple ways, by which one can exfoliate one's skin. Depending on your convenience, you can go for scrubbing or a thorough washing of the face known as washcloth. There is also another method known as chemical exfoliation that works better and more efficiently than the other methods. By removing the old layer of the skin, exfoliation ensures a complete removal of the pigmentation left behind by pimples.
  3. Medicines: Sometimes the intensity of the pigmentation marks on the skin may necessitate the medical intervention. If other methods fail or you wish for a speedy recovery, prescription drugs are always a nice option. At the same time, those medicines, which have retinoid (compounds with effects to those of Vitamin A) like Differin or Tazorac can also be availed of, if need be.
  4. Skin Lighteners: As the name suggests, skin lighteners help in a gradual fading away of the dark spots on the skin. There are several skin lighteners like kojic acid, mulberry extract, licorice extract and primarily vitamin C, which significantly lighten the skin and help in doing away with the marks.

To remove your marks, there is a procedure known as microneedling radiofrequency. This procedure is done by dermatologists and cosmetologists and takes about half an hour per sitting. For best results, you should take 6 to 8 sittings of this procedure. These marks will not go by creams so do not waste your precious money on them. Directly go to any dermatologist and ask for this procedure that I just mentioned. You will get very good results. Take care.

8 Remedial Measures to prevent Pollution from affecting your skin

You feel you have wasted your youth at the age of 30 when you see grey hair, wrinkles on your skin and all other visible signs of ageing.

You wonder what went wrong, after all, you pumped iron in the gym, ate healthy food, got up early in the morning and did yoga, slept early, meditated, used all kinds of skin creams and the lists goes on and on.

We all do a lot of things to stay young and look young but there is one thing we don’t do and that is protect our body and our skin from pollution.

Have you ever wondered how much pollution can affect your skin?

Probably no, hence read on to find out..

Effects of pollution on skin

1.Causes aging, wrinkles, pimples, black heads etc.

2.Rids all natural oils from your skin

3.Dust forms a layer over your skin and congests your pores.

4.Sun’s heat during noon is very harmful as ultra violet rays of the sun can cause cancer, rashes and diseases. Pollution can cause numerous skin diseases and rashes.

5.Pollution can make your skin look dull as it rids them off oxygen.

6.It makes your skin rough.

7.It gives you a tan, which does not go away so easily.

Hence, now that you know the harmful effects of pollution on your skin it is better to curb them and keep them a bay.

Some of the Remedial Measures to prevent Pollution from affecting your skin are:

1.Wrap around a scarf or a Duppata around your head while going out.

2.Apply sunscreen when you go out in the sun from 12pm to 4 pm Or the much better option is to carry an umbrella when you go out in the sun

3.Moisturize your skin by applying moisturizer every night before sleeping.

4.Take an oil bath once a week to replenish your skin of its oils.

5.Try to wear a jacket or a coat while going out so that it shields you from the direct effect of pollution.

6.Mix Shikakai Powder, Channe ka Aatta, Haldi Powder, add water as needed, and make a fine paste of it. Use it as a substitute to soap.

7.Use warm water and scrub, to wash your face after coming home.

8.Eat healthy; it will help to flush out the toxins from your system.

Hence, if you follow these tips faithfully and accordingly, then you will be safe from pollution to some extent.

One cannot evade pollution completely; hence, it is advisable to take proper precautions.

These are the best methods to cure pimples fast -: • To control the sebum (oily) secretion you should maintain your hormonal level. Because imbalance in hormone level causes excessive sebum (oil) production and causes pimples. So do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. Touch your face very less. • you can use a face pack of fuller's earth (multani mitti) with rose water one time in a day for seven days. It removes toxins from skin and remove pimples.,• • Give Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for 3-5 minutes daily. • You can take 2 teaspoon of SAAFI SYRUP daily for 1 month for clear face. • Take 20 gm powder of Black pepper and 50 gm of Amla powder. Mix it and take 1/2 tea spoon of this mixed powder daily with luke warm water for 15 days for pimple free skin. • Take Vitamin-A rich diet & you can take Vitamin-A capsule of 25, 000 I. you. Only under the supervision of a doctor. • use a mild moisturiser for your skin only in winters..

Weight lifting and squats help give a good shoe to the lower torso. Side leg lifts are also good. You may eat more calories if it does not make you very bulky on the other parts. If you have a slim body, eat more and do the mentioned exercises.

Fraxel laser is the best solution to improve your post acne scars. You may require about 4-6 sessions depending on the depth of scars.
