Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition but it has always been everyone’s dilemma. Sometimes, an even skin tone looks hard to achieve but due to the advanced technologies and the huge amount of skincare products available in the market, hyperpigmentation became easy to treat provided that you have enough knowledge regarding your skin and the correct products or treatments to use.
The most common causes of hyperpigmentation are:
Sun Exposure. This is the most common cause of hyperpigmentation. Melanin acts as our body’s protection from the sun. Once we are exposed to sunlight, our body produces more melanin to protect our body from prolonged sun exposure which can lead to hyperpigmentation. Sun Exposure can also make hyperpigmentations look even darker.
Age. As we age, melanin production decreases but the remaining melanin pigments increase in size hence, the age spots for people over 40 are very evident.
Hormones. This is common in females as female hormones (Estrogen and Progesterone) stimulate overproduction of melanin when exposed to the sun. Melasma is very common to people undergoing hormonal changes and is often connected to pregnancy.
Inflammation. Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) is the body’s normal response to skin inflammation. Most of the time, acne or other skin conditions can trigger PIH and skin tends to become darker after it was injured.
