When you look at your skin, do you see those little brown dots? Maybe you also see patches that are darker than the rest of your skin. This condition is called hyperpigmentation, and it is usually quite harmless.
What is Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation happens when the skin produces a lot of melanin. This then causes either dark spots or patches to occur on the skin. Overproduction of melanin can be from sun exposure, which is the cause of sunspots and melasma. Hyperpigmentation can also be caused by injuries and skin inflammation. Having this condition can be annoying, yet it is also preventable.
How do I prevent and reverse Hyperpigmentation?
Although it is usually harmless, hyperpigmentation can be something that you do not want to see every day. One of the best ways to prevent it is by reducing your time in the sun. The UV rays of the sun cause our bodies to produce melanin, so another way to help prevent or slow down hyperpigmentation would be to wear a broad spectrum sun protector, such as EGF UV Shield.
