Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition characterized by dark patches of skin. Hyperpigmentation or darkening can occur as small patches, occur over large areas of the skin, or may affect all parts of the skin.
Hyperpigmentation can occur when the skin produces too much melanin. Melanin itself is a pigment that gives color to the skin. This excess melanin production is what makes certain areas of the skin darker. Increased pigmentation is usually harmless. This condition is also common in many people with all skin types. Even so, hyperpigmentation can be a certain medical symptom.
There are various types of hyperpigmentation. Some common ones, namely:
Sun spots, age spots, sunspots, or age spots also become a condition of hyperpigmentation that often occurs. As the name implies, sunspot is associated with excessive sun exposure. These spots also usually risk appearing in areas of the skin that are often exposed to the sun, such as the face and hands. Melasma: a condition characterized by dark patches on the skin. Generally, melasma affects the face and stomach area, although it can also occur in any area of the skin. Melasma is believed to be caused by hormonal changes and may occur during pregnancy. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation: hyperpigmentation occurs as a result of inflammation or injury to the skin. The most common cause of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is acne. There are several ways to overcome hyperpigmentation:
You must use a sunscreen containing SPF 30 or higher. Medicines that contain vitamin C and kojik acid can brighten as well as a way to overcome skin hyperpigmentation. Use aloe vera or vera to deal with this condition. Over-the-counter moisturizing creams can be an option for treating skin hyperpigmentation. Even so, you are recommended to prioritize products that contain moisturizers, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and retinol. Drugs or creams that contain retinol can increase skin cell regeneration. These ingredients will help the whitening agent to work more effectively. Generally hyperpigmentation that is treated with special creams will disappear. However, if it does not go away, other treatment methods are needed, such as laser or chemical peeling. Hyperpigmentation of the skin can actually be prevented by diligently using SPF 30 sunblock before starting activities in the hot sun. In addition, also wear closed clothes or hats when outdoors activities. Even so, hyperpigmentation should be examined by a dermatologist if the spots do not go away, get worse after treatment, or experience changes in shape, size, and color.
