We all wish we were born with flawless looking skin, skin without imperfections, acne, redness, etc. And now a growing number of people are also concerned with another issue called pigmentation.
Our skin pigmentation is based on the amount of melanin that we have in our skin and a person’s skin colour is primarily based on their gender. For the lucky ones, their skin tends to be even and uniform. However, there are other factors that can affect a person’s melanin production such as hormonal factors, medication, genetic factors and of course sun exposure that can cause various skin pigmentation disorders such as vitiligo, melasma, albinism, port-wine stains, hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmenation is probably one of the most common skin pigmentation problems where there is increased melanin in the skin, creating darker spots on the body. This is most evident with excessive exposure to the sun.
Many individuals are not comfortable with the uneven skin tone and darker spots, especially in the summer time when we are most exposed to external factors. But there are a number of things one could do to hide and prevent further pigmentation disorders besides just protecting oneself from the sun.
Common treatments include buying a lightening cream with an active ingredient that can help lighten the darker spots to create a more uniform and flawless skin complexion. Try using a product such as PharmaClinix Lightenex Cream or Skin Doctors sd White Advanced Brightening Complex.
