Pigmentation issues aren’t just a matter of some adorable freckles – it can be hugely problematic to address unless a consistent approach is taken. Interestingly darker skin types are inherently more at risk and therefore sunblock is critical.
Hyperpigmentation results when melanocytes are stimulated to produce excess melanin by an external skin stressor such as
- sun damage – e.g. freckles, brown spots, patches and lines
- hormonal fluctuations – melasma and
- post-inflammatory marks/spots which can occur after acne or inappropriately aggressive skincare.
