Do you cover up dark spots on your hands, wear long sleeve shirts over brown patches on the backs of your arms, conceal unwanted redness or freckles on your face due to skin pigmentation? These can all affect how you feel about yourself and are all examples of hyperpigmentation on your skin.
Melanin is a naturally occurring pigment responsible for darker colours in your hair, eyes, and skin. It is this pigment that is responsible for darkening in the skin, producing a tan, for example to protect you from UV rays. When melanin is damaged or affected by a skin disorder it can leave noticeable marks: hyperpigmentation.
Pigmentation issues come in many forms. They can occur naturally as a sign of aging and sun damage, be the result of hormonal changes due to birth control medication, come from injuries or skin diseases. One well known cause of hyperpigmentation is referred to as the “mask of pregnancy”, where hormonal changes in expectant mothers cause large dark patches on the face. Regardless of the cause, you do not have to live with spots on your skin.
