Hello, dear readers! How do you feel about alternative medicine? Each of us at least once in my life been treated with folk recipes with herbs. Do you know what herbs vitiligo help restore uniform skin color very quickly? If you do not know, then read.
The principle of action of herbs against depigmentation of the skin
Why non-traditional vitiligo treatment so often involved grass? In the composition of certain medicinal plants there are substances that affect the sensitivity of the skin to ultraviolet rays of the sun.
And here is the UV rays? It’s very simple: the pigmentation of the skin depends on melanin — coloring pigment, which is released when exposed to the sun on the skin.
Due to the fact that the sun increases the production of the dye of the skin, we tan. In areas affected by vitiligo, ceases to produce the dye.
Because of this, they lose color and become milky white. Even the sun can’t get them to sunbathe as they become insensitive to UV light.
Traditional recipes based on herbs cause discolored skin to produce melanin and intensify her sensitivity to the sun, so it starts to tan faster than the rest of the skin.
This is an unconventional treatment of vitiligo. Most interesting is that in most cases it is more effective than the traditional one.
