What is Hyper Pigmentation?

Pigment provides colour for our skin and hair.  Our skin colour is determined by the amount of melanin made by our pigment cells.

The process of making melanin and depositing it into our skin cells is referred to as pigmentation.  This is normal body function and serves to protect our skin cells from damage.

In the case of hyper pigmentation, we see too much pigment produced and some patches of skin will then darken in colour.

Whilst this is not a dangerous skin condition, it does give the appearance of blotchy and uneven skin tone, not to mention being difficult to cover up.

In some cases, the opposite can occur in which we see a loss of pigment within certain areas of the skin. This is known as hypo pigmentation.

The first step in addressing uneven skin tone and excess pigment within the skin is to understand what may be causing the condition.

Possible causes of uneven skin tone and pigmentation are:

  • Sun exposure
  • Artificial perfumes and fragrances
  • Trauma to the skin
  • Environment and pollution
  • Medication (both topical and oral)
  • Hormones (pregnancy, menopause)
  • Stress
  • Diet (high in protein, low in nutrients such as B vitamins)
  • Alcohol

Some lifestyle tips to turn down the tones:

  • Increase intake of fresh fruit and vegetables to provide antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure and wear SPF
  • Reduce alcohol and processed food intake.
  • Avoid excessively high protein diets.
  • Be aware of missing nutrients if following a restricted diet for health reasons and seek appropriate professional advice.
  • Adopt relaxation methods to help control stress levels within the body such as yoga and deep breathing
  • Assess and re-evaluate make up and skincare product.
