Phytotherapy: Preparations with plants to remove blemishes or spots of the face

The main function of the phytotherapy in the treatment of the spots of the skin involves using a number of plants which primary objective is:

- Whitening the stained area by removing the stained areas or making them more noticeable.

- To provide those plants necessary for the preparation of masks to perform "peelings"

- Serve as alternatives to treatment with hydroquinone or alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). There are suspicions that the former may be carcinogenic or that could harm the health of the eyes. The AHA, from the English word Alpha Hydroxy Acids, can be lactic acid from milk, glycolic acid from sugar cane or acids from various fruits.

These products are not as aggressive as hydroquinone, so, used in appropriate amounts, they usually have no effect except in very sensitive people who suffer allergic reactions or burning. When not used in proper proportion, they can cause burns.

In any case, if you want to use AHA creams, their content should not exceed 8%. With higher content, prescription is needed.
