Hyperpigmentation of the skin can cause uneven color and dark patches. Excessive production of melanin is responsible for this condition.
Hyperpigmentation can occur on almost any part of the body, including the face, neck, hands, arms and legs. The root cause of pigmentation is generally attributed to internal factors like hormonal changes in the body, pregnancy and various health problems. External factors like excessive sun exposure, skin injury, burning, emotional stress or contact with certain chemicals can also cause hyperpigmentation.

Fibromas are small skin growths that are actually benign tumors of the connective tissue. They look like small soft nodules on the skin, and vary in size from a few millimeters to a centimeter or so. Fibromas don’t usually have a distinctive color, but can be brightly pigmented. They are not malignant, but throughout life they grow and become more noticeable, therefore represent an aesthetic problem.
Fibromas usually appear during middle age. They usually grow on the neck, face, armpits, stomach, eyelids, groin, breasts, but can also occur elsewhere on the skin. In fact, almost everyone has at least one on the skin, so this issue is not rare.
Good thing is that you can remove them without any cutting them or scarring your skin, with only one ingredient and that is apple cider vinegar.
It is thought that apple cider vinegar is one of the most effective home remedies for many health conditions, and the removal of fibromas is one of them.
Note: Apple cider vinegar should never be used for removing fibromas on the eyelids!
Carefully wash the place around the fibromas with water and soap. Dry. Soak a cotton swab in the apple cider vinegar and drain the excess. Place it directly on the fibromas and fixate it with a plaster or bandage. Leave it for 15 minutes, then wash with lukewarm water. Repeat the procedure three times a day, for seven days. Fibromas should first get darkened and then start to dry out and eventually fall off.
Depending on the size of the fibromas or how he is deep in the skin, can leave little spots, so they should be treated with calendula oil or Aloe vera gel.
Acne spoils not just the appearance but the mood as well. Acne treatment is tightly connected with lots of myths that will not help to defeat this problem…and they might even make things worse.
Bright Side presents the most widespread myths and shares how to protect your skin from harm and get rid of acne as quickly as possible.
7. Eating patterns do not affect the spreading of acne.
There is old research that claims there is no connection between diet and acne, but modern science proves the exact opposite.
Sugar stimulates insulin production, and its overabundance can cause acne. Avoid products with a high glycemic index, such as white bread, soda, chocolate, and beer.
Acne may also appear because of hormones contained in milk, which increase sebum production. Its overabundance clogs pores and causes acne.
Eat products that will help you keep your skin clear:
Products with a low glycemic index, such as whole wheat bread, cashew nuts, cauliflower, and cucumbers will help to reduce acne spreading.
Zinc is contained in eggs, meat, mushrooms, and seafood and can help to restore the skin.
Vitamin A facilitates the healing of acne. It is a reason to include carrots, cabbage, and spinach in your diet.
6. Smoking facilitates the spreading of acne.
Many people think that smoking causes acne. Undoubtedly, tobacco use is a bad habit, but it doesn’t evoke acne spreading.
Smoking worsens skin regeneration, and acne heals more slowly.
If you quit smoking, you will see that you look better: the oxygen flow to the skin will increase, and the recovery process will go faster.
5. Decorative cosmetics cause acne.
Not all cosmetics are bad for the skin. Use products that are marked as noncomedogenic as they are produced specially for problem skin. Avoid cosmetics containing alcohols and oils. Alcohols dry the skin and cause skin irritation, which, in turn, causes acne to spread. Oils make the skin greasy and clog the pores.
Remember that cosmetics should contain:
These components improve acne healing as they stimulate collagen production.
4. A suntan helps to get rid of acne.
UV rays stimulate the work of the sebaceous glands, causing the emergence of new acne. That’s why a tan is forbidden if you have acne. Use a sunscreen for problem skin — it will protect the skin from sunrays and acne spreading.
3. Stress causes acne.
New pimples are not a result of stress. But if you already have acne, stress can worsen the situation: the wound and post-acne healing slows down.
2. If you wash your face more often, acne will go away.
Acne, as well as blackheads, is caused by the clogging of pores with an excess of sebum. That’s why you may wash your face as many times as you want, but the acne will not be reduced. Thorough face washing will cause further irritation: sponges and facial brushes traumatize the skin and don’t clean it. It’s also a reason not to wipe your face with a towel. Just pat your face dry with a towel or a napkin.
Sulfate-containing (SLS, SLES) soaps and cleansers overdry the skin.
1. Toothpaste helps to get rid of acne.
Toothpaste contains baking soda, essential oils, hydrogen peroxide, menthol, and triclosan which can certainly dry acne but can also cause irritations and rashes.
It is better to use a benzoyl peroxide-based acne treatment, which is developed to cure acne.
Everyone knows that it’s bad to pop zits. You can damage an infected follicle and aggravate the inflammation. If you need to clean the skin up and have no time to visit a beauty parlor, you can use dental floss and scrape all the blackheads away. The pores will be unclogged. Don’t forget to treat your skin with an antiseptic.

1. Exotic oils mixture
With this recipe, you’ll not only strengthen and lengthen your eyebrows but your eyelashes as well. In a small bottle, mix equal amounts of coconut and castor oil, and then add 1 tsp avocado oil. Stir everything together. Apply the mixture to your eyebrows using a mascara brush or your fingers.
2. Gentle gel with vitamins
This mixture will help to restore and strengthen your eyebrows, making the hair smooth and shiny. Mix 1 tsp aloe gel, 2 tsp castor oil, and 2 capsules of vitamin E. Apply the mixture with a brush or your fingers before going to bed. Rinse off in the morning.
3. Onion juice
Onion juice nourishes and strengthens hair follicles, accelerates hair growth, and adds shine. Take one small onion, chop it finely, and extract the juice. Apply the juice to your eyebrows, and massage it in for 5 minutes. Rinse off with your regular cleanser and cool water. Or you can simply wipe your eyebrows with an onion slice, as shown in this video.
4. Milk facial mask
Milk contains protein, vitamin B, lactic acid, and calcium. It restores and protects your hair while stimulating collagen production. Dip a cotton swab in whole milk, and wipe your eyebrows, as shown in this video. Let the milk dry, then rinse it off with your regular cleanser.
5. Lemon juice
Lemons are a valuable source of vitamins and antioxidants, essential for strengthening hair and making it grow. But be careful — lemon juice may have a noticeable lightening effect.
Wipe your eyebrows with a slice of lemon, like in this video, wait for 15-20 minutes, then rinse the juice off. Alternatively, you can make an infusion using lemon slices and a quarter cup of coconut oil. Leave the mixture for 15 days in a cool place, then start applying it to your eyebrows every day before going to sleep.
6. Essential oils
For the best effect, we recommend tea tree oil or lavender oil, which are known for their soothing, strengthening, and moisturizing properties. They are best used together with a base oil (coconut, olive, or castor). Be sure to test each component for any allergic reaction by applying small amounts of the oil to the crook of your elbow. Make a mixture of essential and base oils, and lightly massage it into your eyebrows. Repeat the treatment daily.
7. Egg yolk
Egg yolks are a rich source of vitamins and proteins that strengthen and thicken the eyebrow hair along its whole length. Take one egg yolk, whip it, and apply it to your eyebrows. Leave it for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off.
Vaseline is used for moisturizing and conditioning eyebrows. It’s also great for making them grow and giving them an attractive shape. Apply pure Vaseline to your eyebrows, as shown in this video, having previously removed any makeup and washed your face. You can also mix Vaseline with castor oil, olive oil, aloe vera, essential oils, or milk.
Using a clean mascara brush, comb your eyebrowsthoroughly with up and down movements, going from the bridge of your nose to your temples and back again. Next, proceed to massage your eyebrows lightly with your fingers. After that, switch to intense stroking movements, pressing and pinching the skin. Press at a spot in the middle of an eyebrow and, without releasing your finger, begin making circular movements,gradually widening the radius. Repeat with the other brow. This massage will not only improve blood circulation and promote the absorption of nutrients but also remove headaches and eye fatigue.
