To discuss hyperpigmentation, you must know everything about the term 'Pigmentation'. Skin pigmentation is the tone of the skin. Melanocytes are the skin cells which make an anti-oxidant, i.e. Melanin. Melanin is responsible for our skin's colour and is a protective component of skin. The more melanin, the darker the tone.

Conversely, less melanin makes the tone brighter. But those with less melanin are at a greater risk of sunburns and ageing. Hyperpigmentation can be entirely avoided by incorporating good habits right from childhood. While talking about the types, Medha Singh, Herbal Beauty Expert & Founder of Juvena Herbals, shares mainly four common types of pigmentation:

  1. Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation - Acne.
  2. Hypo pigmentation - White spots.
  3. Freckles - Dark brown mole-like appearance all over.
  4. Solar-lentigines - liver spots, age spots, sun spots.
