Regardless of our skin colour, eventually most of us will face some form of skin pigmentation/uneven skin tone problem in our lives.
Our skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin (melanocytes) make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production resulting in darker areas or spots on the skin or hyperpigmentation. Sun- damage, hormones and inflammation are some of the main reasons for pigmentation.
