Earlier on the problem of pigment spots, I heard only from friends. But it so happened that during the second pregnancy I had a darkening on my upper lip. As it turned out, this is the pigmented spots. Now this unpleasant problem worries me.
Why does a darkening appear on the skin?
I hold the opinion that before you deal with the investigation, you need to deal with the cause. So, to get rid of age spots, you need to find out why they appear at all.
Unfortunately, to find out the exact cause of the appearance of pigmentation is almost impossible. Most often, for this purpose, prescribing tests for hormones. I have just made an appointment with an endocrinologist and plan to take tests.
Pigmentation of the skin can appear from a wrong lifestyle, from the use of poor-quality cosmetics, from certain hormonal drugs, as well as from too frequent and intense tan.
In my case, they appeared after pregnancy, which means that they are caused by the incorrect functioning of hormones. But only tests will show exactly.
However, I did not want to sit and wait. It is unpleasant to look at yourself in the mirror and see darkening above the upper lip.
How to deal with pigmentation?
To completely get rid of age spots, you still need to establish their cause. After all, cosmetics can give only temporary results.
Today, many cosmetic companies offer whitening cosmetics that help even out skin color. I bought myself a cream and a special peeling. So far the result is hardly noticeable, but I started the fight quite recently.
I also learned that you can do peeling, during which the top layer of skin is removed in the beauty salon. Do ultrasound or laser peeling.
But while I decided to fight on my own, I’ll go to the salon only if other methods do not help.
As soon as I had this problem, I immediately remembered the cucumber. It was the cucumber mask that helped my sister in her time to get rid of freckles. By the way, I did not make a mask, but simply rubbed a cucumber over the upper lip, the skin became a little lighter.
And recently I read that it helps not only rubbing cucumber. You can use sour milk, kefir and hydrogen peroxide. Wipe problem areas is much easier than making masks, but to achieve the best effect, you need to deal with the problem comprehensively.
I learned a few simple recipes for making masks from pigmentation and am going to make them soon.
Sweet Pepper Mask. For its preparation, you just need to rub the grated pepper, put this gruel on problem areas. You can wash it off after 30 minutes. By the way, it is also useful for saturating the skin with vitamin C.
Parsley mask. Parsley must be crushed and applied to the skin, hold also for about 30 minutes. But I don’t have any idea how to get a dry gruel. But it’s worth a try.
While I am just beginning to struggle with pigmentation, but I believe that everything will work out. Do you have such a problem and how do you fight it?
