5 foods that improve vitiligo

Vitiligo is a condition that causes loss of color in the skin, hair and different areas of the body. It is manifested by non-uniform white patches. Its cause lies when melanocytes (cells that produce pigment) die and stop the production of melanin.

There are treatments, such as Dermaccina Vitiligo Cream & Spray , that are very useful for improving the initial symptom. However, this disease has no cure and may be more noticeable in people with dark skin. Studies reveal that stress can be a harmful factor for health and can cause the development of vitiligo in people, usually over 20 years of age.

Vitiligo should not be confused with melasma, a condition that causes dark patches on some areas of the skin exposed to the sun.

Below, we show you some of the foods and habits that help reduce the main symptom of vitiligo and prevent the disease itself:

5 foods that improve vitiligo:

  • Green tea: Helps prevent melanocytes (cells that produce pigment) from being affected by oxidative stress in the body.
  • Turmeric: May help speed up the speed of re-pigmentation of vitiligo patches.
  • Papaya: Reactivates melanocytes so they can create melanin. It also contains vitamins A and C. In the case of vitamin A, it has a component called retinol that helps correct eye pigmentation.
  • Vitamins E and C: Taking vitamin supplements helps prevent this disease and prevent depigmentation from accelerating. Vitamins C and E act as antioxidants.
  • Carrot: It is a natural tanner that re-activates the production of melanin and also contains antioxidants that prevent the deterioration of the different layers of the skin.

Other recommendations:

There are no foods that are proven to worsen this condition. However, there are some recommendations to keep in mind:

  • Avoid sun exposure, mainly between 12 noon and 4 p.m. Furthermore, it is of great importance to use sunscreen every 2 hours. A lower level sunscreen could be applied to the vitiligo patches and a higher level sunscreen to healthy skin so that a more uniform tone is achieved and depigmentation is concealed.
  • Phototherapy with ultraviolet rays is recommended as it can slow the progress of vitiligo.
  • The Dermaccina Vitiligo Spray treatment highly helps to avoid accelerated depigmentation and helps progressive skin regeneration. Its main components are vitamins A, C and E. It also contains the following ingredients: Ginko Biloba, Black Pepper Oil, Aloe Vera Oil, Babchi Seed Oil, Calendula Oil and Nigella Sativa Seed Extract.

With these tips and also with the constant use of the Dermaccina Vitiligo Cream & Spray psoriasis treatment, your symptoms can greatly improve and enter the passive phase in which you will no longer suffer from signs of psoriasis for an indefinite period.
