Pigmentation means colouring.
Your skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin and when these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Skin pigmentation disorders can affect the colour of your skin in patches or the entire body.
If your body makes too much melanin, your skin gets darker. Pregnancy, Addison's disease, and sun exposure all can make your skin darker. If your body makes too little melanin, your skin gets lighter. Vitiligo is a condition that causes patches of light skin. Infections, blisters, scars and burns can also cause lighter skin.
Skin discoloration is a common skin concern that affects all ages as well as all skin tones. Although there are different types of discoloration , including isolated dark spots and larger brown patches, the key for maintaining an even-toned complexion is a combination of prevention, correction, and protection with advanced skincare ingredients and formulations—and committing to an effective regimen while keeping sun exposure to a minimum.
