Exposure to the ultra-violet rays can lead to dark patches or pigmentation of the skin, because the melanin is transferred to the skin surface in an uneven manner. The cause may be an internal one, but sun-exposure makes it visible on the face in the form of dark patches. Repeated exposure to the sun causes the patches to become more apparent and persistent.

The first aspect of the treatment is protection from the sun. Actually, as part of the treatment, one should try to avoid sun-exposure as far as possible. Physical protection is the only answer by applying a sunscreen before going out in the sun. Select a sunscreen with SPF of at least 20. The sunscreen should be applied 20 minutes before sun-exposure, to allow it time to be absorbed by the skin. It should be reapplied if you are in the sun for longer than an hour. The effects of the sun increase near water bodies and snow, as they reflect the sun’s radiation. Therefore, it becomes all the more important to protect the skin and re-apply the sun screen after 20 to 30 minutes.

If the skin is dry, it should be kept moisturized at all times. At night, after cleansing, apply a nourishing cream and massage it on the skin with a few drops of water. This helps to improve the skin’s ability to retain moisture.

The use of scrubs and masks also help to remove dead skin cells and their contained pigment. This helps the dark patches to gradually become lighter. External care, itself, can remove pigmentation permanently, provided protective care is followed afterwards. Even when the pigmented patches disappear, one should continue to use sunscreen. In fact, the use of a sunscreen has become an important part of modern cosmetic-care, to protect the skin from problems and premature ageing.

As a home remedy, you can try applying a little sesame seed (til) oil and pat the skin with a hot moist towel. Or, apply a little milk, with a few drops of honey, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and wash off with water. If you wish to make a cleanser at home, add 5 drops of oil to one tablespoon cold milk. Mix it well. Using cotton wool, use this mixture to wipe the skin. You will find that milk is very soothing to dry skin.

The Shahnaz Husain treatment for pigmentation is as follows:

In the morning, after cleansing, apply Shawhite Lotion only on the dark patches, using cotton wool. After 15 minutes, apply a sunscreen on the entire face if you are going out in the sun, OR apply a moisturiser according to skin type on the entire face and leave on.

In the evening, apply Shafair Cream only on the dark patches and leave on. Do not expose the skin to the sun after applying Shafair Cream.

At night, after cleansing, apply Shalife Nourishing Cream on the entire face if your skin is normal to dry. Massage it on the skin with a few drops of water and wipe off with moist cotton wool. At night, apply Shablem Ointment only on the dark patches by rubbing it into the skin and leaving on all night.
