Dark irregularities in the complexion are called pigment spots, hyperpigmentation or “dark spots”. The discoloration of the skin is caused by an overproduction of the skin pigment melanin and can have various reasons. Fortunately, there are creams, serums and treatments that lighten the dark areas and ensure an even complexion!
Pigment spots can appear on the face, hands or other parts of the body and are usually the result of excessive sun exposure, hormonal changes, genetic predisposition or aging. Skin damaged by acne often reacts with hyperpigmentation, which only fades very slowly.
