Hyperpigmentation is when certain areas of the skin – often on the face – become darker in appearance to the rest of your skin. It is a usually harmless condition that can occur across all skin types and typically presents as flat, darker, uneven patches of skin.

What Causes: Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is caused by an excess in the production of melanin in your skin. Melanin is responsible for your skin’s colouring. If too much melanin is produced, hyperpigmentation occurs. There are three types of hyperpigmentation. They are -

  • Age Spots
  • Melasma
  • Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation can occur due to continued, over-exposure to the sun over a number of years, as a result of changes in your hormone levels, and down to the ageing process. You can also develop hyperpigmentation after an injury to the skin – for instance, after a scab or wound has healed.
