How to improve melanin? Which kind of diet and supplement can improve the melanin?
Melanocytes are cells contained in the basal or outer layer of the skin, called the epidermis. These cells create melanin, which pigments the skin. People with more melanin have darker skin tones. The more melanin you have, the more protection your skin has against the damaging effects of the sun. Sun-damaged skin increases your risk of skin cancer. Certain vitamins can help increase and maintain the number of melanocytes in the skin. Always talk to your doctor before changing your diet or taking dietary supplements, especially if you are pregnant or nursing. Take NutroActive Microfriuts Daily 1 tablet after breakfast.

Almonds= Grind 8 to 10 almonds to make a coarse paste and add enough honey to make a thick paste. Smear this mixture on the affected skin, massage for 5 minutes and leave it on for another 20 minutes. Wash off the pack with lukewarm water. Follow this cure 3 to 4 times a week till the melasma is gone completely.

Hi, Intake of foods that are rich in vitamins A, C,E and K are helpful in reducing the melanin production. The foods include Milk, butter, cheese, whole eggs, broccoli, spinach, carrots, pumpkin, can notaloupe, sweet potato, turnips and apricots are rich in vitamin-A. All citrus fruits, guava, amla, pine apple, papaya, black current, strawberries, mango, grape fruit, broccoli, potato, tomato, spinach have sufficient amounts of vitamin-C, but as heating denatures the vitamin you have to consume it in a raw form or semi cooked form. Almonds, spinach, sunflower oil, avocado, sweet potato, wheat germ oil are really good sources of vitamin-E, it doesn't act directly by lowering the melanin but it doesn't allow hyper pigmentation. All dark green leafy vegetables are rich sources of vitamin-k and it reduces the dark spots on a long run. The change of skin tone might not happen suddenly as expected and it may take time based on your skin complexion and type of diet you take.

Hydroquinone on regular basis can reduce melanin easily. A cream with monobenzone can also reduce melanin leading to making the skin fairer permanently. There are various ointments that help in reducing the levels of melanin permanently. Collagen, antioxidants and Vitamin C make skin fairer and more flexible.

Hello lybrate-user. It is our genetic coding that is responsible to cause excess melanin. And sun exposure aggravates it. So to reduce it you will need to limit the sun exposure in the first place. There are some medicines like glutathione which can reduce it but they are all not a permanent solution. And you will need to keep taking them. You can start taking glutathione capsules availabe online on healthkart like sites.

Mix sandalwood powder with rose water then apply it to the areas that are dark with melanin. By applying this mixture daily, you can cool down your skin. Since melanin production increases with heat, lowering your skin's temperature reduces this process, giving you fairer skin.

Melanin I have less ,as my grey hairs are more. So how to get rid of it so I asked.

Melanin I have less ,as my grey hairs are more. So how to get rid of it so I asked.
Premature greying of hair can be due to stress, smoking, nutritional deficiency, thyroid disorder, chemical use over hair etc. but most important cause is hereditary factor. As such nothing much can be done for premature greying esp if it is hereditary or familial. The hair that has turned white would remain so but its progression can be prevented to some extent by taking hair supplements containing calcium pantothenate and PABA. For the same you may take tablet follihair one daily. Food rich in proteins (like sprouts, lentils, soy products), vitamin A and B like whole wheat products, green leafy vegetables, carrots, yellow and orange fruits like mangoes, papayas, nuts like sunflower seeds, walnuts, sesame seeds provide minerals like copper which are essential for maintaining hair pigment. Hope that answers your query. Feel free to write back if having any doubts. Regards
