How to Reduce Melanin in Skin

He fastest way to permanently reduce melanin in skin is by undergoing a laser treatment, but this option is very costly. As an alternative you can either buy skin lightening creams from a store or visit a dermatologist to get some prescribed products. Natural home remedies like turmeric, aloe vera, tomato, cucumber, turmeric, lemon and potato can also be used to get rid of excess melanin.


 
Melanin plays a very important role in protecting the skin from the hazardous u. V rays and at the same time it is responsible for either fair or dark skin tone. Decreasing the level of melanin in skin will help you to reduce skin pigmentation and give you lighten and fair skin tone. To reduce melanin in skin you will have to wait for months and hence if you have patience then only you will be able to make skin look fair.

 

What increases the melanin levels?

These are some of the common causes that increases the melanin production in the body.
A.    Changes in the hormonal levels.
B.    Excess contact of skin with sun rays.
C.    Some kinds of skin disorders also lead to high melanin in skin.
D.    Adrenal disorder can also be the cause.
E.    Lack of adequate vitamins and malnutrition are also some other causes.

Despite the fact that an adequate quantity of the melanin pigment is required to protect skin from the damaging sun rays, but large quantity of this pigment makes skin dark. Maybe you have heard that exposing skin under sun makes it dark, this is because melanin is produced in to protect it. Over exposure to the ultra violet rays stimulates the development of this pigment. To reduce melanin in we have mentioned a lot of tips which covers commercial products to home remedies.

Ask a dermatologist for fair skin
Whether your skin is naturally dark or due to some other reasons, a dermatologist can give you the best cure to reduce the melanin levels in skin. After checking up your skin condition these experts recommend some of the creams and oral supplements that can help you obtain fair skin. They can prescribe you with hydroquinone which makes use of hydrogen peroxide to reduce melanin and get rid of pigmented skin. Regularly using a hydroquinone cream will help in reduction of darkness. Apart from this there are also other treatments available to lower the melanin production in our body. One of such treatment includes using of monobenzone cream. When this cream is applied to the skin melanocytes are secreted in the body that lowers the melanin pigment and helps to permanently make skin fair. Also there are many drugs available that you need to take orally. Hence, by visiting a dermatologist you are exposed to variety of available treatments.

Melanin reducing creams
Beauty stores are flooded with skin whitening creams that help in lightening the skin tone. These creams contain various natural extracts and chemically made formulas that help in reducing the quantity of the melanin in skin. Also there is present collagen, vitamin c and antioxidants that overall provides flexibility to the skin, removes the wrinkles and help you achieve fairness. Research about some of the best cream available and use it for getting a glowing and white complexion.

Before opting for a laser treatment, consult with the doctor regarding the advantages as well as the side effects of it. Laser skin lightening process requires 5-10 sessions and then there are certain precautions you need to follow to maintain the fairness.
Apply sun protection lotions
This is the best precaution you can take whether you skin is dark or fair. Using sun protection lotions helps in providing a layer of shield to skin and it not only prevents tanning and pigmentation but also lowers the risk of skin cancer. When the sun rays fall on the surface of skin, melanin is produced to protect it. But, if you use such a lotion in advance your skin will not have to produce melanin. This will not make your skin fair, but will prevent further production of this pigment and thus prevent darkening of skin.

Pimples or acne is caused when Hair follicles in your skin gets clogged due to oil, dirt, bacteria or dead skin. Acne generally occurs in people with oily skin but other factors like dead skin, dirt, pollution or hormonal imbalance can also cause acne in people with normal skin. Acne can be reduced or controlled by including some habits in your daily life style. 1. Keep your skin clean – Wash your face daily with an oil control face wash. You can also use a good AHA glow face wash that not only controls oil but also removes dead skin and bacteria. By shedding the old dead skin, your skin feels rejuvenated and clean. Apply a good toner, like tea tree toner after washing your face. After toning, apply an oil free and non- comedogenic cream on face. Last but not the least, apply a good sunscreen with minimum 30 spf daily. 1.Face packs – Occasionally apply good oil controlling face packs. Multani mitti + Lemon + yogurt is a good face packs for oily skin beauties. You can apply organic apple cider for 5 minutes after washing your face to kill the bacteria that clogs your pores. Green Tea can also be used as a toner once a day. 2.Diet – Most important thing is diet. Eat fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables daily. Reduce junk food intake, colas, alcohol and soda and consume whole grains. Keeping your digestive system healthy keeps your body and blood toxins free. Drink green tea, lemon juice, orange juice and food items containing Vitamin C as it is responsible for maintaining good skin health. Drink at least 10 glasses of water every day. 3.Exercise – Exercises, yoga, suryanamaskar improves the blood circulation and balances hormones. They keep skin healthy and boost body’s immunity to deal with several issues and not just acne. Include it in your daily regime.

Amla or the Indian gooseberry is said to be highly effective in increasing facial hair growth. It may be used alone or in combination with mustard leaves. Here are some other health benefits of amla oil. Simply massage a little amla oil onto your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes; then rinse using cold water. Practice proper skin care. Exfoliate your face. Hair follicles can become blocked with dirt and prevent your hair from growing. ... Use hair-healthy grooming products. Shampoos, or lotions with a vitamin B complex, will help. Massage your hair follicles. A gentle massage can help stimulate your hair follicles.

- do not scratch or squeeze the lesions - do not apply creams or oils on face - do not apply hair oils or wash oil within 1 hour of application - take plenty of fluids - wash your face 2-3 times daily especially when it's oily - certain foods can increase acne such as chocolates, oily food etc, avoid these if they increase acne - take plenty of fluids and fruits - dandruff can also increase acne, so use anti-dandruff shampoo if you have acne. - also, for the marks, try to avoid sunexposure as far as possible (use broadspectrum gel based sunscreen, cover the face while outside during sunlight hours)

If they are raised moles, you can try using mole removal cream. You may go for laser mole removal. If they are black heads (as you said) you need to give steam to open pores, scrub them and gently remove them. They are less likely to be black heads if you keep your skin clean.
