Let’s talk about melanin pigment and its role:
Melanin is a skin pigment that makes the hair, skin, and eyes appear darker. There are two forms of melanin pigment in our body – Eumelanin and Pheomelanin. The lower layers of the epidermis trigger the melanocytes, which produce the melanin pigment. More the melanin production in the body, the more our skin looks darker and with less melanin production, the more the skin looks lighter and fair.
Apart from playing a role in deciding our skin tone, melanin also plays a very important role in keeping us safe from the harmful sun rays. Melanin helps protect the skin from UV rays.
Increasing the melanin pigment is an effective way to reduce skin cancer risk. There are different ways to increase melanin in your body like Vitamin A, Antioxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and herbs.
Hyperpigmentation is a condition caused by an increase in melanin. It’s very important to take care of your skin throughout the year and not just during any particular season. Sunburn and hyperpigmentation due to sun-exposure can happen anytime and not just in summer particularly. Pigmentation is one of the biggest problems that are very commonly seen in everyone.
Use a sunblock of broad-spectrum SPF 30, physical cream. Apply it 3 times a day even if you’re staying inside. Always apply sunscreen 20 mins before going out. If you are going out in the hot sun, return and apply raw aloe vera gel to get rid of pigmentations. Apply ice packs on the sunburn area, as it can reduce the redness immediately and prevent permanent damage to the skin.
If you are looking out for other effective treatments to reduce pigmentation then you can try chemical peeling, which can help you to reduce the patchy pigmentations. Laser treatments like CO2 and Q switch are also good to be done for pigmentation removal. Consult with Clear Skin Experts for more information.
