WHAT TO EXPECT
Pigmentation refers to the coloring of the skin. Skin pigmentation disorders cause changes to the color of your skin. Melanin is made by cells in the skin and is the pigment responsible for your skin’s color.
What causes pigmentation?
There are many factors that can lead to discolouration of the skin.”Usually, 70 to 80% pigmentation is caused by the sun. You can get UV rays sitting indoors or outdoors and in any season, which can lead to pigmentation,” she further explains.
Along with sun exposure, certain medications, hormonal imbalances and conditions like Addison’s Disease can also lead to pigmentation.
How can one take care?
Oxidative stress happens due to imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in our body. These free radicals can damage healthy skin cells and also other cells.
Here, antioxidants can help the skin to repair itself as they neutralize the free radicals and prevent the skin cells from damage.
Orally: Prescribed supplements like Vitamin C and Glutathione can help neutralize free radicals and prevent oxidative stress. A good diet with antioxidants can also help boost healthy skin.
Topically: Look for skincare products with antioxidant ingredients like Vitamin C, Retinol and Ferulic Acid, which can prevent pigmentation.
“These creams work by hampering the production of melanin while simultaneously increasing cell turnover by sloughing the top layer of dead skin so that the existing pigmentation is flushed out. You can treat your skin while you sleep by overnight applications of these agents, but needless to say under medical supervision,” concludes the skin expert.
