Pop Quiz: What is hyperpigmentation?
If you break down the word, it’s pretty easy to understand; Hyper, meaning more than normal and pigmentation, meaning the color of skin.
Hence, the appearance of darker patches of skin or dark spots is referred to as Hyperpigmentation. It is usually caused due to the excessive production of a pigment called melanin by melanocyte cells. It is a skin condition that is not an immediate cause for concern. There are several different types of hyperpigmentation with the most common ones being:
→ Sunspots - small dark spots caused due to excessive exposure to sun
→ Melasma - patches of pigmented skin caused due to hormonal changes
→ Post-inflammatory (PIH) - dark spots caused due to inflammation or injury
With the boom of the skincare industry, there is now a wide range of over-the-counter products available that target hyperpigmentation. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) like glycolic and lactic acid and Beta Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) like salicylic acid are most commonly recommended by Dermatologists to treat PIH and sunspots. On the other hand, prescription products like Tretinoin and Hydroquinone are recommended to treat Melasma.
Here at Everyday Humans, we live by the saying, “Prevention is better than cure”. Certain types of Hyperpigmentation can be prevented by:
→ Avoiding exposure to sun between the hours of 12:00PM and 4:00PM
→ Wearing hats, scarves and any other items of clothing that provide sun protection
→ Using an appropriate sunscreen
