If you are worried about uneven skin tone- you can blame Skin Pigmentation. Most Sri Lankan women struggle to cover up dark spots that turn up on the face, neck, shoulders and arms. What could really be causing skin pigmentation?
Hypopigmentation is a skin disorder in which patches of skin become lighter in color than the normal surrounding skin. Women are often seen with white patches on their face and neck, prior to diagnosis. Hyperpigmentation is a skin disorder that darkens areas of skin, which is caused by the overproduction of melanin.
What really causes Skin Pigmentation?
Experts believe that sun exposure, genetics, stress, menopause, and hormonal changes during pregnancy or during prolonged use of birth control, are the main causes of Skin pigmentation.
