Hyperpigmentation of the skin is a common skin concern that is more common in darker-skinned individuals, where it is also the most difficult to treat. There are many causes of hyperpigmentation like melasma or following an inflammatory condition like acne, eczema, or skin trauma. Sun exposure worsens all forms of pigmentation, hence daily use of sunscreen is mandatory. nUse of products targeting various pathways of pigmentation which work in synergy is recommended to achieve satisfactory results. Cosmeceutical products with active ingredients like retinol, glycolic acid, azelaic acid, arbutin, tranexamic acid, and kojic acid will assist in re-establishing a more even skin tone. Please consult with a dermatologist for assessment and prescription-strength medication if required.
