10 Products To Get Rid of Skin Pigmentation

Pigmentation or hyperpigmentation of skin is caused when there is overproduction of skin’s pigment “melanin.” Hyperpigmentation can be caused or triggered by various factors such as overexposure to harmful rays of the sun, hereditary factor, underlying liver disease, hormonal imbalance, etc. Out of all the skin issues, hyperpigmentation is difficult to treat and more often than not, treatments to get rid of hyperpigmentation have long-term side effects.  For example, an effective ointment for hyperpigmentation that is usually prescribed by dermatologists and contains hydroquinone and tretinoin, makes skin very sensitive and if used over a protracted period of time would lead to discoloration and development of permanent blue-grey patch on the skin which would be impossible to get rid of. Hence, while choosing your treatments, make sure you consult your doctor first to find out whether it would be safe for you.  Here are some products that claim to get rid of pigmentation in a safe way without use of harsh chemicals, but consultation with doctor is always recommended.
