Hey peeps!! I am going to talk about hyperpigmentation which is very common today. Lots of us now a days encounter countless skin related problem. But, what do we do about it?? Do we at all take them seriously? Most of us, simple ignore skin problems like redness of skin, pigmentation, blemishes etc. Most of the skin problems occur due to the pollution these days. One of these major problem is hyperpigmentation (dark patches) which not only take a huge toll on your self-esteem but there is absolutely nothing to feel embarrassed about!
Hyperpigmentation & It’s Cause
In today’s blog we are going to give a shout out to “Hyperpigmentation “. Let’s understand step by step what it is and why it happens?? Hyperpigmentation is a medical term commonly used to describe the dark patches of skin. This occurs due to the excess secretion and deposition of Melanin pigments underneath the skin resulting in darker patches when compared to normal skin tone. Hyperpigmentation may affect the skin irrespective of age race or gender.
Now coming to what causes Hyperpigmentation?? Well, there are various factors that stimulates the accumulation of melanin pigment such as acne, sun damage, inflammation or even pregnancy. People with darker skin tones are prone to hyperpigmentation. There are three type of Hyperpigmentation which are
- Melasma – happens because of fluctuating hormonal secretion
- Sunspots ( Liver spots) – happens because of excess sun exposure
- Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation – may happen after injury or inflammation
How To Get Rid Of Hyperpigmentation
As in 70% cases, the hyperpigmentation happens due to excessive exposure to sunlight and to some extent pollution and dirt too play a role. The greater is the sun exposure, greater are the chances of getting hyperpigmentation as sun induces the melanin production. So, it’s important to understand that we cannot stop it but we can always protect the skin from getting affected. First and foremost is to practice a healthy skincare regime which includes cleansing, toning and moisturizing which we all aware of.
Now-a-days there are many products available in the market that claims to be doing wonders to your skin. But, the fact is how many actually doing it?? To be honest, none of us would want to add another step to the daily skin care routine because none has got plenty of time for all that. That’s why we are here to help you out in understanding what should you be using and how it’s going to help you rather than just simply go with the crowd without using your mind.
Ways to prevent hyperpigmentation naturally are:
- Avoid direct exposure to sunlight during peak hours i.e. from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
- Sit under the shade or use umbrella incase going under the same is the only option
