What is hyperpigmentation and uneven pigmentation?


Hyperpigmentation and uneven pigmentation is when skin appears lighter or darker because of increased melanin or abnormal melanin production. This can be caused by a number of issues, from medical and genetic factors to imbalanced hormones and damage from the sun. The first line of defence in correcting skin pigmentation is protection from the sun, encouraging a reduction in the amount of melanin produced, which in turn will reduce and help reverse hyperpigmentation.
