10 Shanaz Hussain Beauty Tips For Skin Pigmentation
After all, it’s about the spotless beauty
Ah, your flawless skin! These words hold a rare importance in a girl’s life. She can never get tired of hearing them again and again and again! However, the process which finally leads to these words can be quite tiring. Skin care is as important as your diet. The way we eat to live healthy, skin care makes our skin healthy.
A flawless skin is a healthy skin, free of pigmentation. But with age, dark spots and discolouration (pigmentation) are seen on our face. Sun spots also result into pigmentation. But unlike what most of you think, skin care doesn’t require expensive visits to beauty salons and spas. Shahnaz Husain, the beauty expert, has some tried and tested tips and remedies. These can gradually fade pigmentation.
How to fight skin pigmentation
1. Homemade Face Packs
Regular use of face packs can help tighten the skin while removing the spots.
- Mix one part honey with two parts lemon juice and apply. Wash off after 20 minutes.
- Mix ground almonds with curd and apply. Rub the mixture gently over the skin. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and wash off with water.
- Mix rose water and lemon juice in equal quantities and apply on the dark areas. Wash off after 10 minutes, or once it dries.
- Mix besan (gram flour) and curd, with a little turmeric and apply on the dark areas.
- Take some rice flour, add a little curd and use it as a scrub on pigmented skin.
Use these face packs daily to see proven results.
2. MultaniMitti or Fullers Earth
Multanimitti is a traditional face pack. It is considered especially good for pigmentation. It helps control oil secretion and reduces pimple scars as well.
- Take some multanimitti
- Add lemon juice and rose water
- Apply this on face thrice a week
- Let the pack dry before washing off
3. Stop Bleaching
Bleaching is one of the most common reasons behind pigmentation. Avoid bleach completely. Otherwise, at least try and limit its use to special occasions only. You can also opt for natural bleach options like lemon juice and tomato juice.
4. Face Scrub
Scrub your face twice every week. This helps remove pigmentation and also keeps your skin looking fresh, soft and healthy. Do not scrub if you have pimples. This will cause the same damage as popping them. It may also cause inflammation and acne marks.
- Squeeze out some scrub onto your hand
- Use your finger tips and gently rub in circular motion
- Especially scrub over the T zone and forehead.
- Wash off with water.
- You can follow this with some steam to remove black heads and get glowing skin.
5. Always Wear Sunscreen
Exposure to sun cause stubborn pigmentation resulting in dark spots, dark circles, tanning and wrinkles. These make your complexion look dull and lead to ageing, faster than usual. So if you are not a regular sunscreen user, it’s about time that you immediately become one.
- Invest in a good sunscreen lotion, preferably with SPF cpntrol
- Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before stepping out in the sun
You may or may not see the sun all the time. But its harmful rays are always looking out for you. So wear sunscreen even during winters.
People with dry skin are prone to pigmentation and tanning. Always use moisturizers to keep your skin well-hydrated and glowing. Opt for heavier moisturizers during winters and in cooler climates.
7. Drink Plenty of Water
Dehydration causes your face to look dry, dull and lifeless. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day. It helps keep your skin supple, soft, glowing and pigmentation-free.
8. Chemical Peels
Chemical peeling shows instant results as it peels the upper layer of our skin to remove all impurities. In today’s time when people don’t find time to look after themselves regularly, chemical peeling is gaining popularity. But if you have sensitive skin, avoid peels completely.
If you go in for chemical peeling treatment, make sure you moisturise your skin well every day. Peels make your facial skin dry, making it more sensitive to the sun. So using a sunscreen becomes very important.
9. Homemade Remedies
Home remedies come in handy all the time. To treat pigmentation apply:
- Grated potatoes
- Cucumber juice
- Lemon juice
- Aloe Vera extract
- Tomato juice
- Mashed raw bananas.
You may use these in combinations as per your preference or as a single ingredient for face masks.
10. Vitamin E
Vitamin E helps fade all kinds of marks and improves skin elasticity. Use oils and creams that are rich in Vitamin E. You can also intake vitamin E orally in form of tablets. Eat vitamin E-rich foods like nuts, fish, broccoli, spinach, avocado, pumpkin, tofu and roasted pumpkin seeds. These foods will treat pigmentation naturally.
Apart from all the above mentioned tips and remedies, you can also use Shawhite pigmentation lotion and Shafair. These are Shahnaz Hussain’s products especially formulated for treating skin pigmentation.
You must be patient while trying these tips. Since these treat pigmentation naturally, it shows desired results only over time.
