What is Pigmentation?
Pigmentation is the presence of excess color in the skin. Essentially, hyper-pigmentation is a common condition in which patches of skin become darker in colour than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when there is an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour, forms deposits in the skin. Discoloration can occur anywhere and in any formation on the face, be it as patches, or as tanning, or as simple as age spots or marks.
What Causes it?
Overexposure to sun rays and a daily onslaught of allergens wreak havoc on our skin, making skin appear dull, patchy, tanned and pigmented. However, the primary cause of pigmentation is the sun. UV rays from the sun can damage skin cells, and major protection skin has is pigment or melanin. So, when you are exposed to the sun, for self-protection, melanocytes, the pigment producing cells of the skin, get stimulated to create melanin. This melanin is then deposited to protect the skin from further UV damage! Unfortunately, this intrinsic protection can ruin your complexion!
In the case of melasma, your hormones also play a big part in making your skin more sensitive to the sun, resulting in distinctive facial patches. That is why it occurs more often in pregnant women or women on oral contraceptive or hormonal pills.
In regards to marks, when there is a lot of inflammation in the skin, your skin starts stimulating the melanocytes as well. So, melanin deposition occurs in the place of inflammation as a type of scarring mechanism. Inflammation can occur due to pimples, scratches or even bruises! And this process worsens as you age because your body’s healing process gets less regulated.
