WHAT IS HYPERPIGMENTATION?
Hyperpigmentation is the word used to describe areas of uneven pigmentation in the skin. It often appears as dark patches or spots that make your skin look uneven. These spots are known as age, liver or sun spots and can appear on any part of the body that is regularly exposed to the sun. Hyperpigmentation is also at the heart of skin conditions such as melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
As mentioned above, age, liver or sun spots are caused by exposure to the sun.
Melasma, characterised by larger patches of hyperpigmentation, is most common in women and is often triggered by changes in hormone levels.
This condition is often found among acne sufferers and occurs when a skin injury heals and leaves an area of discolouration behind.
WHAT CAN I DO TO TREAT HYPERPIGMENTATION?
If you’re suffering from any kind of pigmentation, it’s really important to use products with ingredients that can help brighten the skin and to use them regularly. Building a routine and sticking to it is key.

WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT HYPERPIGMENTATION?
In your quest to protect your skin against dark spots and pigmentation, SPF is your best friend. It’s important to remember that UVA and UVB rays affect your skin even on cloudy days therefore it’s vital you give your skin the daily protection it needs.
Limiting your exposure to the sun will also help to reduce hyperpigmentation. It’s best to keep out of direct sunlight between 10am and 4pm which is when UV rays are at their strongest. If that is not possible, sit under an umbrella, in the shade or shade your face and scalp with a stylish hat.
Though skin pigmentation can be a natural side effect of ageing, paying careful attention and taking good care of your skin can limit age spots from appearing, giving you a more even, radiant complexion.
