How to get rid of pigmentation on forehead?

Are you tired of looking like a Dalmatian with all those brown spots on your forehead? Well, fear not my friend! I have got the solution for you. With this easy-peasy guide, you can get rid of pigmentation on forehead and be as radiant as sunshine.

What is Pigmentation?

Before we jump into how to tackle pigmentation, let’s first understand what it actually is. Pigmentation refers to the color that appears on our skin due to melanin production. Melanin is a natural pigment in our body that gives color to hair, skin and iris right from birth.

Causes of Pigmentation

All pigs are equal but some pigs have more melanocytes than others which makes them more likely to develop pigmented skin. Ahem! Excuse me…I meant humans here too.

Here are some reasons why people can experience pigmented skin:

Aging

As human beings age, the production of melanin slows down making their skin paler (what do they say about wine?) No wonder people start turning grey!

Sun Exposure

Excessive Sun exposure causes hyperpigmentation – It’s like giving strawberries too much sun…they turn darker – dried…you may call them raisins if you like (haha).

Genetics

We should blame it all on genetics folks. If only we could change parents just like clothes sometimes!

However fortunately there’re ways out! So don’t despair yet!

How Do We Get Rid Of Those Brown Spots then?

Now let’s dive into practical steps towards getting rid [of] A.K.A achieving evenly toned complexion regardless of climate changes or ageing milestones(The evergreen glow-Yes please!).

1.Exfoliate Regularly!

Ok since we’ve mastered ABCs now it’s time for another acronym lesson – AHAs and BHAs. AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) and BHAs (beta-hydroxy acids) are exfoliating agents that help remove dead skin cells from the skin surface, revealing the fresh layer beneath.

Here’s how to do it:
Use a chemical exfoliator containing AHAs or BHAs – It can be in form of pads like Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads(kept aside for nighttime usage), serums e.g The Ordinary Lactic Acid

 OR

 Try using an OTC retinol cream/solution(e.g Differin Adapalene Gel had previous role as prescription acne medication,but recent studies showed potential benefits for pigmented skin with sun protection-advised prescriber)-considering studies suggesting Retinoids increase cell turnover faster.

Remember, regularity is key here but use these products sparingly because minimal amounts if misused can literally peel your entire face off.
