Your flawless makeup, perfect hair, fabulous dress and the overall diva-like image is for nothing, if you don't take care of the all-too-obvious discolouration around your lips and chin area.
It's not an unusual occurrence, and more women, than you possibly think, suffer from this condition.
So, why does it occur in the first place? Melanin, an element that decides your skin's colour, often tends to be more concentrated in certain areas of the skin like chin, which when exposed to direct sunlight can cause the discolouration issue.

Also, skin around your mouth tends to be thinner, which makes it an easy target for the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation and excessive dryness.
Unsuitable method of waxing, hormonal changes and medications are some other causes that can trigger the condition.
And before you opt for the first chemically-chocked product you can get your hands on, why not give herbal remedies a try first, right? They are easy on the skin, cost almost nothing and are free of toxins.
And when it comes to treating discolouration naturally, we cannot think of better ingredients than tomato and oatmeal. So, here is a DIY oatmeal and tomato pack to lighten that dark pigmentation around the chin and mouth area.
Why tomato, you ask? Rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, tomato shrinks the enlarged pores, removes dirt and evens out the skin tone.
Oatmeal, on the other hand, is suitable for all skin types and its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce blemishes, remove dead skin cells and treat acne effectively.
- 1 teaspoon of non-flavoured oatmeal
- 1 teaspoon of tomato juice
- ½ a teaspoon of curd
Method Of Preparation & Application:
- Grind oatmeal into a fine powder form and mix it with the tomato juice. Add in the curd, and whisk this mixture until all the components combine well.
- Using a brush, apply the paste on to the pigmented area. Leave it on for about 15 minutes, and then rinse it off with cold water.
- For quick results, apply the paste thrice in a week.
