Being comfortable in your skin is a huge part of feeling beautiful, however comfort can be a bit of a reach when you are faced with pigmentation and discolouration on the skin. We need to understand the complexity of our system and how the skin cells work, and if damaged, how it effects the the production of melanin in our skin. While, pigmentation may only affect patches on your face, it may as well be possible that your entire body be affected! To prevent pigmentation you should and must avoid direct exposure to the sun, without a good sunscreen and take special care of it. However, if it has already happened, then that can be sorted and fixed with the use of some easy remedies for pigmentation.
