Your skin is unavoidably exposed to factors that may result in more melanin being produced in certain areas. This uneven darkening of the skin is known as hyperpigmentation. The darker spots or patches can give you an untidy look that is sometimes associated with ageing. The good news is that if you know the causes, you can minimise the formation of dark spots. There are also treatments available to reverse the damage.
How is hyperpigmentation created?
Some of the factors that cause the pigment responsible for skin and hair colour to be produced unevenly over the skin are:
- Lesions from acne or scarring
- Increased hormone stimulation during pregnancy or as a reaction to medication
- Exposure to UV light
- Toxins in the air
Prevention and treatment of hyperpigmentation
The unflattering complexion resulting from an overproduction of melanin can be avoided by drinking lots of water, applying sunscreen daily, exfoliating, moisturising even when fighting acne, cleansing every day and using natural ingredients that will give your skin a smooth appearance.
