Self-help tips:

  • Seek shade: Sunburns can damage the skin which has lost pigment immensely because it has lost melanin composition which is responsible for protecting your skin from the harmful Sun rays. Whenever you are out in Sun, make sure you avoid direct contact and seek maximum shade.
  • SPF is your BFF: Whatever you do, don’t get out of the house without lathering yourself in SPF. Whichever part of your skin is exposed to the Sun has to be covered in SPF at least 15 minutes before you leave the house. Additionally, you need to ensure that you reapply your sunscreen whenever you sweat too much, spend time in the water. Furthermore, don’t forget to reapply it every two hours. Also, ensure that your sunscreen offers UVA and UVB protection. Your skin which has lost pigmentation is immune to sunburns which is the reason why you need to apply excessive sunscreen on a daily basis.
  • Avoid artificial tanning: In order to align your colour, you may resort to unnatural and cosmetic mediums of tanning like tanning beds and Sun lamps. However, these aren’t the safest alternatives and can burn the skin on your body which has lost pigment.
  • Don’t get inked: Getting any skin wounds, which tattoo most definitely causes, gives rise to Koebner phenomenon. Believe me, it isn’t as complicated as it sounds. It simply means that you are at a risk of having a visitor in the form of white patches on skin 10-14 days after getting a tattoo. Bidding your bohemian self adios may seem like the hardest thing to do but it is simply a small sacrifice for a bigger cause.  

Before accepting it as your fate and getting completely disappointed due to the white patches on skin, consult the homeopaths at Dr Batra’s™ by booking an appointment.
