Common Skin Pigmentation:
“Spot” the Real Problem

Melanin is the natural pigment in the body that gives color to your hair, skin and eyes. But when the melanin-producing skin cells become unhealthy or damaged, it will increase its production of melanin pigment, which causes the skin to have brown spots and hyperpigmentation.

There are different kinds of hyperpigmentation, which includes freckles, lentigines (sun spots), melasma, Hori’s macule, seborrheic keratosis (age spots) and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

It will be good to identify which kind you have in order to find the right treatment for you and your skin.
