WHAT IS SKIN PIGMENTATION?
Pigmentation is a common skin condition, where your skin has areas or patches of skin that turn a darker colour. It is caused when your skin surface has too much melanin or pigment. While it’s usually a harmless condition, skin pigmentation can make your face look older than having fine lines and wrinkles does.
Skin pigmentation can affect all skin colours and types and includes freckles, sun spots (also called liver spots or age spots), sun damage, melasma and chloasma.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SKIN PIGMENTATION?
Melasma: Melasma is a type of skin pigmentation that’s caused by the hormonal changes that develop during pregnancy. It can appear on any area of the body with the most common areas being the face and stomach. Melasma can also develop as a result of female contraception and sun exposure.
Chloasma: Sometimes called “the mask of pregnancy”, chloasma is a pregnancy side effect where an overproduction of melanin results in dark patches of skin appearing on the face or abdomen.
Freckles: Freckles are a common hereditary type of skin pigmentation. Some people develop freckles as they age, while others develop freckles from a young age after sun exposure.
Sun spots: Sunspots are a common type of skin pigmentation that is related to excessive sun exposure over. The backs of your hands and face are the most common areas affected by this type of skin pigmentation.
HOW CAN I PREVENT SKIN PIGMENTATION OCCURRING?
One of the best ways to prevent skin pigmentation occurring is to apply a high SPF sunscreen that blocks UVA and UVB sun rays throughout the year. When melanin absorbs UV rays from sun exposure, it protects your skin by becoming darker. If you already have skin pigmentation, these areas will become darker.
