We have all your questions answered! We are giving you a perfect guide to all how’s, whys and what is needed for you to understand this skin problem.

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a harmless skin condition where the skin becomes darker than the usual colour. When an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour, forms deposits on the skin. This darkening can be caused by various reasons and isn’t a serious health problem.

Few reasons why our skin faces pigmentation are: -

∙ Excessive sun exposure

∙ Skin Inflammation

∙ Over-consumption of alcohol or tobacco

∙ Underlying health conditions

How can you prevent it?

∙ Right skincare products and practices

∙ Less exposure to UV rays

∙ Use products that have anti-inflammatory properties

∙ Use brightening actives after sun damage.

∙ Reduce smoking or consumption of alcohol.

You can always use some home-made remedies to treat the pigmented skin.

∙ Aloe Vera has the power to heal the pigmented skin as it helps in skin lightening and produces melanin in the skin.

∙ Liquorice can be used on the spots of hyperpigmentation as it has some great antioxidants that help in lightening of the skin.

∙ Green Tea extracts reduce the sunburns and heal the affected area very soon with its anti-inflammatory properties.
