Hyperpigmentation in light-skinned people is typically caused by sun damage from overexposure to the sun but hormones may also play an integral role. Hyperpigmentation in darker-skinned people is typically caused by melasma (a patchy brown discoloration of the skin that usually occurs during pregnancy) or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, or PIH (typically caused by injury or inflammation to the skin). Consulting a skin care specialist for your Hyperpigmentation is crucial so that they can determine the underlying cause of the condition and the most effective course of treatment.
