More common pigmentation types that affect us are freckles, liver spots and melasma. Pigmentation occurs when the skin produces too much melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color. Melanocytes, the cells that produce melanin, are found in the upper layer of the epidermis. The more sunlight you’re exposed to, the more melanocytes your body makes. ☀️😲 As we age, our skin naturally becomes thinner and loses collagen, making it harder for our skin to protect itself against UV rays. As a result, pigmentation occurs and would cause existing dark spots to become darker. Besides exposure to the sun, other conditions that can cause pigmentation to include changes in hormones, skin trauma or irritation, and side effects of certain medications. While home remedies to treat pigmentation are easily accessible, most of them have not been put through clinical testing. Hence, some might not work, and, in some cases, could worsen pigmentation problems. Do your research for medical evidence before using them. 🔎 For the best results to treat pigmentation, we strongly recommend that you seek professional consultation.
