The skin can lose its glow and get dull and discolored. Sun exposure, Chloasma, freckles, and scars due to acne are just a few reasons. Although not a life-threatening issue, people with dull and darkened facial skin usually consider it a life-altering one, leading to feelings of inadequacy and decreased self-confidence. This, in most cases, leads to the haphazard use of cosmetics and medicated ointments. However, only temporary results are usually found and in some cases, injudicious use of such products may even aggravate the condition. Homeopathic remedies for clear and glowing skin are totally free from any side effects and are extremely effective in treating this problem.
This brings us to the scope of Homeopathy treatment in such cases. The medicines used are all natural and, thus, free from any harmful components. Their selection is based upon the individual constitution of the patient, and success is attained by employing the constitutional remedy internally. No external application is applied or recommended.
As the condition has arisen due to a disturbance in the internal balance of the body and not due to any external factor, the medicine too must work from inside to clear the skin. This result is gained through homeopathic remedies which raise the inner vitality of the person and throw out any noxious agent in the body which may be the cause behind dull and discolored skin. The result—fair, clear and glowing skin is regained.
Top Homeopathic Remedies for Clear and Glowing Skin
Berberis Aquifolium, Sulphur, Psorinum, Bovista, Sepia, Silicea, Kali Bromatum, Natrum Mur, Lycopodium, Phosphorous, are the top remedies for clear and glowing skin.
1. Berberis Aquifolium – Top Remedy for Clear Facial Complexion
Berberis Aquifolium is a natural remedy that attains the uppermost rank in homeopathy for clearing facial complexion. Berberis Aquifolium can be used in all the cases where the skin is dark or has scars due to acne or any other conditions. This medicine never fails to bring a glow to the skin and lighten the complexion. I consider it as the first choice of medicine in cases where a clear facial complexion is desired. It has shown very promising results and given complete satisfaction to my patients as well as me. To sum up, I would call Berberis Aquifolium a ‘precious gem’ in homeopathy to attain fair, clear and glowing skin.
2. Sulphur – To Clear Dull and Dirty Skin
Another wonderful treatment for attaining clear skin is Sulphur. This medicine has gained much popularity and acclaim in treatment for various skin troubles. Sulphur is a deep-acting remedy that helps in removing the very core of the affliction. Sulphur is used when the skin is unhealthy, looks dirty and dull, or is dry and scaly. Sulphur helps to make the skin healthy and nourishes the skin to give it a glow. Sulphur is also prescribed for various eruptions (mostly pimples with dull and dirty look). This remedy helps in clearing pimples and any scars left by them. Apart from dirty and dull skin, the person may have excessive heat in the whole body, especially in the palms, soles of the feet, in the face or in the head. An extra craving for sweets may be shown by subjects who need Sulphur. A dislike towards washing the skin and bathing may be found in cases ideal for using Sulphur. Lastly, persons coming for treatment after the injudicious use of external applications of different varieties (including medicated soaps and ointments) should be given no remedy other than Sulphur. Here Sulphur will help in bringing out the most prominent symptoms individual to a person which will serve as a guide towards finding a suitable remedy.
3. Psorinum – For oily/greasy/ dark Facial Skin
Psorinum is the appropriate remedy for people with oily or greasy facial skin which has a dark and dirty look. The face may also show pimples due to highly active oil-producing sebaceous glands on the face. Here Psorinum will help to clear the pimples and dark skin and control the excessive oiliness of the skin. Psorinum will deep-cleanse the skin pores on the face making it oil-free, clear and glowing. High sensitivity towards cold air may be found in persons needing Psorinum. Offensive perspiration may also be a complaint.
4. Bovista – For Skin Damaged by Use of Cosmetics
Facial pimples, dark skin or any other skin affection caused by the injudicious use of cosmetic products can benefit from the use of the remedy Bovista which is used to clear the skin. Bovistaholds a significant place among homeopathy medicines for the treatment of skin problems consequent to the excessive use of cosmetics. Bovista helps in clearing facial skin and makes it look bright and glowing. It also removes pimples or other afflictions resulting from the use of cosmetics.
5. Sepia – For Discolored Skin due to Chloasma
Chloasma refers to brown or black discoloration on the skin of the face, mainly seen in women during pregnancy or in women with hormonal imbalance and menstrual irregularities. Chloasma may also be the resultant outcome of liver disease. The best remedy for clearing Chloasma is Sepia. Sepia work wonders in ladies who have black or brown spots on the face during or post pregnancy. It also works well for women who have discoloration on the face due to uterine afflictions and irregular menstrual cycle of varying degrees. Most women who need Sepia in Chloasma show marked discoloration on the nose and the cheeks. Sepia always shows the best results in such cases of Chloasma. No other treatment can equal it in clearing these discoloured Chloasma spots and returning the healthy glowing charm of the skin, without any side effects.
6. Silicea and Kali Bromatum – For Facial Scars resulting from Pimples
Both these remedies are recommended for a clear skin and for removing scars caused by pimples. Silicea is mainly recommended where deep-seated acne containing pus have resulted in disfiguring scars on the face. It also works where deep pits on the face have resulted from acne. Silicea shows great promise in clearing these pits and scars and making the skin clear. Kali Bromatum is useful in cases where hard indurated pimples have resulted in facial scarring and discoloration. Kali Bromatum works well in clearing scars and bringing back fairness that has been lost due to disfiguring scars, to the skin.
7. Natrum Mur, Lycopodium, and Phosphorus – To Clear Freckles
Freckles refer to pigmentation on the skin, usually on the face, occurring due to prolonged exposure to the sun. This is due to a collection of melanin pigment under the skin resulting in discolored spots on the face and other skin areas that have been exposed to the sun. The spots may vary from brown to black in color. These medicines are always selected according to the constitution of the patient and help to remove freckles and make the skin clean and clear. The constitutional symptoms are all different and peculiar for each of these medicines. A few symptoms are listed below:
- A person who needs Natrum Mur has hot temperament with intolerance to the heat of the sun. He may also crave salty things. Usually, the person is reserved in nature and may show a tendency to weep easily.
- The constitutional symptoms for selecting Lycopodium include a desire for sweets or warm food and warm drinks. Chronic gastric troubles of varying character may also be found in subjects needing Lycopodium.
- Phosphorus may be needed when a person has a craving for ice-creams, juices or cold drinks. Such a person is also sensitive to external impressions like noise, light, and odors.
These are only glimpses of the symptoms, out of a huge list of constitutional symptoms. Apart from these many other symptoms may need to be considered before selecting these remedies. That is where a good homeopath comes in. He will ask for details and work on a comprehensive case study before deciding the medicine most appropriate for you.
