Here are a few handy tips to prevent and reduce pigmentation:

First and foremost, swear to protect yourself from the sun with an SPF40+ sunblock, hats and sunglasses. Yes, even on the days it’s visibly cloudy, the harmful UV rays are ever-present.

Adding to that, a healthy diet full of fresh fruits and veggies, significantly those rich in vitamin C, will help you to maintain healthy skin in the long term. Vitamin C has brightening properties that can help heal blemishes and reduce hyperpigmentation.

And Finally, face yoga and massages will help you eliminate unwanted pigmentation by boosting blood circulation, regulating lymphatic drainage and the skin cells regeneration process, and increasing collagen and elastin production, resulting in a natural shift to glowing radiant and even skin tone.

It’s easy, quick to follow and quite therapeutic too. If you're interested in getting rid of Pigmentation, you can click here to try my “Yoga for Healthy Hair and Skin” class to learn and practice face yoga drills and techniques for easier management.
