8 Natural Homeopathic Medicines for Treating Facial Pigmentation

Homeopathic Medicines for Facial PigmentationFacial pigmentation refers to the darkening of facial skin due to overproduction of pigment melanin. Medically, this is known as melasma. In melasma, patches of pigmentation appear on the face, predominantly over the cheeks, nose, forehead and upper lip. The pigmentation varies from yellowish, brownish, bluish to blackish in colour. Chloasma is another term for facial pigmentation in women during pregnancy. Freckles or tiny dark spots appear on the face in certain cases from repeated sun exposure. Freckles are more likely in persons with fair skin. Homeopathic medicines for facial pigmentation can help effectively clear out the pigmentation.

Homeopathic Medicines for Facial Pigmentation

The top 8 natural medicines for facial pigmentation are Sepia Officinalis, Pulsatilla Nigricans, Cadmium Sulphuratum, Berberis Aquifolium, Sulphur, Psorinum, Lachesis Muta, and Thuja Occidentalis.

1. Sepia Officinalis – Top grade Medicine for Facial Pigmentation

Sepia Officinalis is one of the top grade medicines for treating facial pigmentation. The person prescribed Sepia Officinalis will have pigmentation on the cheeks, forehead and nose. The pigmentation varies from brownish, yellowish to blackish in colour. The skin may be rough and hard. Sepia is very suitable for women with facial pigmentation arising during pregnancy and after childbirth. It works equally well for women who develop facial pigmentation during menopause. Along with facial pigmentation, dark circles under the eyes are a unique symptom.

2. Pulsatilla Nigricans – For Facial Pigmentation with Menstrual Irregularities

Pulsatilla Nigricans is a most effective medicine for facial pigmentation in women with menstrual irregularities. The irregularities include delayed periods, scanty menses and suppressed menses. They show up as pigmented spots and freckles on the face. Pulsatilla is also helpful for acne resulting from menstrual irregularities.

3. Cadmium Sulphuratum – For Facial Pigmentation that Worsens in Sun

For facial pigmentation that gets worse with exposure to the sun, Cadmium Sulphuratum is the best prescription. The pigmentation varies from yellowish to brownish in colour. Pigmented spots are present over the entire face, but most prominently on the nose and cheeks. Another guiding symptom for use of Cadmium Sulphuratum is that pigmentation gets worse in the wind. The face may feel itchy.

4. Berberis Aquifolium – For Treating Facial Pigmentation from Eruptions

Berberis Aquifolium is a highly effective and reliable remedy for treating pigmentation spots and scars on the face left behind by any kind of eruption. The skin may feel waxy. The cheeks may feel hot.

5. Sulphur – For Facial Pigmentation with Dry Skin

Sulphur is a highly reliable medicine for facial pigmentation with dry skin. The skin looks unhealthy and dirty. The person complains of itching and burning sensation on the face. Itching gets worse in the heat. Sulphur is also a good choice of medicine to treat facial pigmentation that has been subjected to ointments and external topical applications in the past.

6. Psorinum – For Facial Pigmentation with Oily, Waxy Skin

For facial pigmentation attended with greasy, oily, waxy skin, Psorinum is the medicine to go to. Facial skin looks dull, pale and sick. The face is covered in pigmented spots that may be attended with itching. Acne – papular or pustular – may be present on the face.

7. Lachesis Muta – For Facial Pigmentation in Pre-menopausal Women

In addition to Sepia Officinalis, another helpful medicine for treating facial pigmentation in women of menopausal age is Lachesis Muta. A woman who needs Lachesis will have facial pigmentation ranging from bluish–purple to bluish–black in colour, along with the other menopausal symptoms.

8. Thuja Occidentalis – For Facial Pigmentation and Freckles

Where facial pigmentation and freckles are both present, Thuja Occidentalis works wonderfully well. The skin looks dirty, dry and is covered in brown spots. The face may look pale, with dark circles under the eyes. Pigmented spots may also be present on the hands and arms. The skin is very sensitive to touch.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Does Homeopathy have a permanent solution to facial pigmentation?

There is a great scope of treating facial pigmentation with homeopathy. Natural medicines help lighten facial pigmentation and in time, could make them fade away given that other factors are conducive.

2. Why do we get facial pigmentation?

The root cause of facial pigmentation is excess melanin production. Facial pigmentation is very common in women, but may also arise in men. The causal factors are many, the major among them being hormonal changes in women during pregnancy, after childbirth, during menopause, from intake of contraceptive pills, from hormone replacement therapy and hypothyroidism. Other factors that trigger facial pigmentation are stress, loss of sleep and sun exposure. Heredity also plays an important role in predisposing a person to facial pigmentation. Acne may also lead to scarring and facial pigmentation.

3. At what age does facial pigmentation occur?

Facial pigmentation can occur at any age, but it is most prominently seen between 20–40 years of age.

4. I have facial pigmentation. Will going out in the sun worsen it?

Yes, sun exposure will definitely worsen the facial pigmentation. The melanin producing melanocyte cells gets activated in the sun, hence worsening the facial pigmentation.

5. Will stress lead to facial pigmentation?

Stress does not cause facial pigmentation, but will surely worsen the condition if it persists for long. Stress causes hormonal imbalance which may worsen facial pigmentation.

6. I am a woman of menopausal age and notice discolored spots on my face. Is it natural to have such spots at this age?

Hormonal changes during menopause could cause facial pigmentation among other symptoms such as profuse menses, hot flushes, headaches, and mood swings. However, all women going through menopause will not necessarily get pigmentation.

7. I have thyroid and now, pigmentation spots on my cheeks and forehead. Are pigmentation and hyperthyroidism related?

Yes, pigmentation and thyroid complaint are related. An imbalance in thyroid hormone levels can lead to facial pigmentation.

8. Can hormonal changes cause facial pigmentation?

Yes, hormonal changes are the foremost reason behind facial pigmentation. Hormonal changes in women during pregnancy, after childbirth and during menopause, all contribute significantly toward facial pigmentation as do changes in the thyroid hormone. Taking oral contraceptive pills can also lead to facial pigmentation.

9. I have been on a contraceptive pill for a while now. Will stopping the pill cure my facial pigmentation?

Once you stop taking contraceptive pills, you will be able to stop further pigmentation. However, the pigmented spots that are already there will not fade away by themselves. They will require proper treatment.

10. Can topical applications erase pigmentation marks?

Pigmentation on the face is the symptom of some internal problem which is why topical external applications usually do not help. The root cause of the pigmentation needs to be identified and treated before the marks will fade.

11. Will taking proper sleep reduce pigmentation marks?

Lack of sleep is a contributing factor to facial pigmentation. Lack of sleep raises the level of stress hormones which worsen the pigmentation. Hence, proper sleep is needed to prevent worsening of facial pigmentation.

12. Does the weather have anything to do with facial pigmentation?

Most cases of facial pigmentation worsen during the summer months, it has been found.

13. Should I take vitamins to reduce facial pigmentation?

Vitamins A, B12, C and E are known for their properties to reduce facial pigmentation. However, these vitamins should be taken in recommended doses, only after consulting a health professional. Taken together with medicines, these vitamins can work wonders and fade out facial pigmentation marks.

14. Can lifestyle changes help keep away pigmentation?

Lifestyle measures that can help avoid and manage facial pigmentation to an extent are:

  • Cover face in the sun
  • Manage stress by following a yoga and meditation regime
  • Drink lots of water
  • Proper 8-hour sleep is advised
