Home Remedies For Uneven Skin And Stretch Marks
Uneven skin tones can be caused due to skin abrasions or even long-term acne which has left the skin discolored and damaged. However, there are some home remedies that can be used to balance out these uneven skin tones and that can even help skin discolorations to fade. Sometimes the uneven skin discoloration is caused by a skin condition called melasma. This especially tends to develop on a person’s face on the cheeks, chins, foreheads and the upper lip. In women this can also appear on the neck and the forearms. It is known to affect some men too.
People with a darker skin tone are more prone to this condition. Usually the skin derives its color from melanin which is the pigment that is developed by melanocytes. Those women who are going through some kind of hormonal imbalances when they are pregnant or for some of those who are on birth control pills, have a disturbance in their melanocytes levels that produces much larger amounts of melanin. This gives the skin its uneven skin rent tone.
There are lots of different remedies and dietary changes that one can follow to help in reducing this discoloration. Some of them include drinking lemon juice from a freshly squeezed lemon. This is extremely high in Vitamin C which is greater beneficial for the skin. Even soaking a piece of cotton in lemon juice and then applying this over the face is extremely useful in taking of the skin’s dead cells and thus leaving the skin looking balanced and healthy. Try drinking the juice that has been extracted from mint leaves. The same juice can also be applied all over the uneven skin.
A diet that is high in Vitamin C is essential in helping keeping the skin tone healthy and toned. Most citrus fruits like oranges, sweet limes and other fruits all contain this vitamin in high doses. Add large quantities of carrots to the diet. This can also be made into a paste and applied on to the face. Various applications can be made using some of these products which when applied to the uneven skin can help in removing any blemishes and making the skin even. Try making a mixture of cucumber that has been grated and mixed with some lime juice. Try applying this paste all over the face at least twice a week. Orange peel can be dried and powdered and applied on the skin along with some yogurt.
