Skin pigment comes from melanin. One of its purposes is to give your skin colour resulting in your Fitzpatrick skin type. In some people melanin can be over produced in some areas causing increased pigmentation or ‘hyperpigmentation’.
Some causes of hyperpigmentation:
- Sun exposure
- Hormonal changes e.g. Melasma in pregnancy
- Skin inflammation
- Skin injuries
