Hyperpigmentation in Dark Skin: How Can You Treat it?

No matter how much you love wearing makeup, nothing beats having clear, smooth skin that makes you look forward to no-makeup days.

When it comes to achieving a bright, flawless complexion, unwanted spots, whether in the form of a single dark spot or all-over patches of discoloration, can be the biggest buzzkill. The technical term for these spots is hyperpigmentation. How can you treat hyperpigmentation in dark skin?

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes patches of skin to look darker than the overall skin tone. This happens when brown pigment melatonin is overproduced in the skin.

While the causes may be different, hyperpigmentation can affect people of all skin tones.

Below are the top causes of hyperpigmentation.

· Skin inflammation

· Trauma to the skin (for example, pimple picking)

· Sun exposure

· Hormonal changes during pregnancy or otherwise

· Genetics

· Medical conditions, such as Addison’s disease that increases melanin production

· The use of certain medications, including antibiotics and chemotherapy drugs
