Mostly based on genetics, melanin production determines all the various forms of skin pigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is one type of skin discoloration condition where the skin produces too much melanin, causing dark patches to form
Melasma is common form of hyperpigmentation. Its effects can be reduced by applying sunscreen when UV exposure is expected

Our skin is not only our largest organ but its also our most visible organ. That may be why problems with skin pigmentation can be so stressful even though they dont necessarily cause any serious complications to our health most of the time. Understanding different problems and causes with skin pigmentation and how to treat them can be the first step to improving how you feel about your skin.

SKIN PIGMENTATION MARKS


Sometimes when we become bit too much conscious about our skin care, the result is often the worse. The reason is we are stressing out our face constantly by repetitive cleansing and scrubbing which results in blemishes. So instead of too much of cleaning the better option is to use a gentle and a mild cleanser a day. (Note: you an always take the advice of the cosmetologist for a recommendation to choose a right cleanser).

Day makeup should always be simple, remember simple the better! Go or a simple touch up instead of heavy makeup. You can choose an acne pad, top remove excessive oil and dirt. And shine of your face. In the case of blemished skin, cleanse and moisture the dry areas, and do not ever start on experimenting with 4-5 products if u are thinking that some magic will happen over night. Stressing your face will only make your skin acne prone as the oil glands will become more active and send more oil to the surface.

Pigmentation is caused by sun exposure and sometimes genetics. Mostly darker skins contain them and i know its daunting to have uneven skintone.....makeup usually evens it out. But i know bio oil also works when used every night before you go to bed. Also honey mixed with milk and used as a facemask twice a week makes the skin glow ! Always use a moisturizer with soy extract or kojic acid to even out the skin and always use a sunscreen with spf 50 when youre outside. Hope this helps:)
