WHAT IS HYPERPIGMENTATION?

What is hyperpigmentation

Everyone wants to maintain their beauty aesthetically. However, there are many who has Hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is characterized by the darkening of an area of skin as a result of the  overproduction of melanin. Hyperpigmentation is the result of either of two occurrences: (1) an abnormally high concentration of melanocytes produce melanin or (2) when melanocytes are hyperactive.

 

For instance, sun exposure stimulates the production of melanin. Although it can affect anyone, this condition is more prevalent among certain ethnicities such as Asian, Mediterranean, African, or Latin. Hyperpigmentation can affect any part of the body including the face, hands, and neck, which is why it is crucial to wear sunscreen on a daily basis.
