Get Rid of Freckles, Stains and Hyperpigmentation by Using This 2-Ingredient Natural Recipe
Hyperpigmentation is darkening of the skin and it is usually triggered by high melanin level. Melanin gives color to your hair, skin and eyes. Melanin level can be afflicted by trauma, aging, diseases, pregnancy and too much exposure to sunlight, causing unpleasant brown spots.
The reason for melanin disorder can be internal or external. Internal causes are inherited and they are specifically common for people with dark skin tone.
External causes involve exposure to chemicals like progesterone. Estrogen, minocycline, betaxolol and sunlight.
Ultraviolet rays can trigger strains, spots and freckles which can cause long-lasting or temporary discoloration. They are common on skin areas that are exposed to sun (face and hands).
Surgeries or traumas also trigger hyperpigmentation, but the spots hold on around even when the condition improves.
Melasma is skin discoloration during pregnancy, but it sometimes includes men. The spots show up on the cheeks and nose, and this phenomenon is commonly known as the “pregnancy mask.” Nevertheless, the spots are gone after labor.
