    Hi Sweetie, following articles I read in Times of India that I reproduced here for your information and further steps in this regard,

    That dark spot, scar or dull patch is inevitable especially with sun becoming harsher day by day. Our skin tone, as also our hair colour and colour of our irises, is determined by the pigment Melanin - a substance produced by special cells called Melanocytes. When these cells overproduce the amount of melanin hyperpigmentation ensues. This skin condition is caused by excessive sun exposure, hormonal changes, genetic factor or drug reaction. Sometimes, another skin condition called acne vulgaris (severe acne/pimples) also leads to hyperpigmentation. Each one of us has experienced hyperpigmentation in smaller amounts, sometime or the other, in form of dark spots patches, birthmarks, moles and ageing spots. Managing it becomes easier with an early detection of the problem.
    A consultation with dermatologist can confirm the type and extent of hyperpigmentation. The latter comes in various forms like Melasma, Lentigenes or liver spots, Ephelides or freckles and Post- inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Melasma is usually associated with hormonal factors such as pregnancy, menopausal changes and ingestion of birth control pills. Areas most affected by melasma are cheeks, forehead and upper lip. Usually the condition is superficial but at times it can become dermal i.e. penetrate the deeper layers of skin. Resulting sun damage from prolonged exposure causes liver spots.
    Those with light-complexioned skins are more prone to freckles and Post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation results from common skin problems like acne, rashes and scratch marks or any skin injury.

    New Age ways of dealing with Hyperpigmentation
    As mentioned above, a dermatologist consultation is the first step. It will help in identifying the pigmentation condition with a visual examination and relevant medical history. Most often pigmentation affects only the outward appearance and is not indicative of any underlying health risks. However, prevention is better than cure! So before it gets too late to treat your skin, start using an effective sunscreen daily, this is the key in preventing and minimizing formation of brown spots. Apply the sunscreen 15 min before sun exposure, wash and reapply every 2-3 hours as the sun protection lasts for a limited period. To know the appropriate sunscreen for your skin type, meet a skin care consultant or your dermatologist.

    Apart from creams and lotions, hyperpigmentation can also be treated by special skin treatments such as Diamond polishing, Beauty light oxygen therapy; Vit C serum oxyjetting and oxy clear face therapy. These treatments give excellent results and make the skin fairer.
    For stubborn pigmentation like melasma, freckles, lentigenes, sunspots and dark circles laser treatment is really effective. Medlite C6 and Cosjet TR are Q Switched Nd lasers are effective new world technologies to treat all types of hyperpigmentation. This laser is also used to treat Birthmarks and remove tattoos. It is a very popular treatment because it is painless, short lunch-hour procedure and in just a few sessions one sees a marked improvement. This treatment is effective for all ages and works on men and women alike. Another laser is Affirm Fractional Laser which is an advanced fractional laser which uses two wave lengths- 1440nm and 1320nm. It delivers extremely gratifying results in treating photo damage, pigmentation, freckles and blemishes. Affirm laser can make any man or woman look years younger, fairer and glowing. Affirm is a short, easy, relatively pain free and lunch-hour procedure with amazing results.
    A few suggestions for patients with hyperpigmentation are-
    1. Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water helps in detoxifying the body.
    2. Keep a check on tea/coffee intake
    3. Take coconut water daily. It replenishes the skin and fights hyperpigmentation.
    4. Add antioxidant Vit.C and Vit.B complex supplements to your diet.
    5. Use a home made pack with curd/ lemon juice/ tamarind paste/ papaya pulp/pineapple juice. It helps to lighten the complexion.

    1)Pour lemon juice onto basil leaves. This is great for getting rid ofpigmentation marks and dark circles that may have been a long-time problem.Place them all around your face and your skin should lighten up.
    2)Almonds are considered to be one of the best remedies for tan spots. Firstyou will need to soak the almonds overnight. Then, after grinding them, addmilk to create a paste. Apply the paste to the places where you have darkspots.
    3)Try boiling cumin seeds and then washing your face with the waterafterwards. This will wash away unwanted marks, thereby making your skin morebeautiful.
    4)Once a month you can try bleaching the affected area. There are numerouscreams and lotions you can use for this, but you will need to try differentones to see which one works best for you.
    5)Dilute some vinegar in water and apply to the face. Rinse and let it dryon its own. The acetic acid is the element in vinegar that will help you reducethat dark coloring.
    6)Grind up some dried orange peels and mix them with a little water. Thenapply the resulting paste to the face. This should easily clear up face pigmentation,and even better, it may help you eliminate some pimples, if you have any.
    7)Always use sunscreens with at least 15 SPF if you are prone to skinpigmentation. The sun is always harsh on sensitive skin, even when it may becold outside. Sunscreen is the first step to preventing hyper-pigmentation.
