Do you have hyperpigmentation?
Do you experience uneven skin tone or struggle with dark spots, or darker patches on your skin? Also known as hyperpigmentation, this skin condition can be a bit of a challenge, but with the right skin care regimen and professional advice, you can balance out skin pigment and achieve an even glow.
Uneven skin pigmentation or hyperpigmentation is the result of irregular production of the natural skin pigment known as melanin. In some areas of the skin, the cells that produce this melanin are working overtime and the excess pigment that’s produced, causes patches of skin to become darker in colour than the surrounding skin. Certain triggers such as UV exposure, hormones and inflammation trigger the skin’s pigment production response; a process known as melanogenesis. Skin pigment production accelerates producing darker spots. This condition can affect all skin types and tones though it is more noticeable and prominent in darker skins.
Types of hyperpigmentation
- Melasma ~ caused by hormonal changes such as during pregnancy or when taking the contraceptive pill. Looks like patches or a mask.
- Sunspots ~ caused by UV rays and appear as dark spots in places that are usually exposed to the sun.
- Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation ~ caused by inflammation or injury and looks like a dark mark after an injury or breakout.
New research links pollution and hyperpigmentation
New research indicates that airborne pollution particles that become lodged deep in the skin, oxidises the surrounding tissue causing irritation that leads to uneven pigmentation. Rising levels of airborne soot and traffic-generated pollution cause a 20-25% increase in dark spots – adding up to 20 years to your perceived age!
