Vitiligo is caused by a loss of pigment in the skin. Though there is no cure, it can be alleviated by home remedies like applying coconut or almond oil to affected areas. A mix of turmeric and mustard oil is also effective. Drinking water stored overnight in a copper vessel stimulates the increased production of melanin and thus reduces the white patches.

Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:

Melanin is the pigment that gives the skin its characteristic color. White patches or Vitiligo is caused by a loss of pigment in the skin, due to destruction of pigment-forming cells known as melanocytes. There is no known way to prevent or cure vitiligo. However certain home remedies for vitiligo can help to alleviate the problem of white patches very effectively.

Effective Home Remedies For Vitiligo/White Patches

Turmeric

Mix some turmeric powder and a few drops of mustard oil to form a paste. Apply this paste over the white patches once in the morning and evening on a daily basis. Alternatively, you can crush a few neem leaves, mix them with some turmeric powder and water, and apply the paste on the white patches on a daily basis (twice for quick results).

 Ginger

Cut a piece of ginger and rub its juice on the white patches. You can also mix the juice of ginger with some red clay and apply the paste over the white patches for 15-20 minutes (rinse with water afterwards).

 Copper

Copper ions are known to stimulate the increased production of melanin in the body which in turn can effectively reduce the appearance of white patches and prevent recurrences. Pour some water in a copper vessel. Leave it overnight. Drink the water the first thing in the morning.

Coconut Oil

You should apply coconut oil twice or thrice daily on the affected skin. Coconut oil helps in the formation of new skin cells, which lessens the problem of white patches. The oil is very soothing for the skin.

Papaya

Papaya is always used for skin problems. Papaya pulp is very useful for providing the right pigmentation to your skin and this in turn reduces the appearance of white patches from your body.

Almond Oil

Almond oil is very useful in improving the production of melanin in the body which in turn reduces the white patches from the skin.

Juice plus is a highly concentrated whole food product, I have my whole family on it and after a couple of months you could really see a difference on my daughters face. Chaga tea also helps with melanin production

I've had great success using juice plus for my daughters face. Tried lots of herbs from the naturopath but was too hard for her, juice plus was easy and really helped.

Well the only proof I have is one of my best friends. Her elbows, knees and face were already completely white. She's been vegetarian for 12 yrs and she has no signs that would even lead to believe that she has vitiligo. She actually was able to wear shorts and short sleeve comfortably for the first time when she turned 21 she's 28 now and all of her pigment is back. She does eat soy products. After 3 months of not eating meat she started to see the change. I told her she should have been documenting this because it's unheard of for pigment to come back. Please spread the word. It does work!!!!
