Specialized skin cells, known as melanocytes, have internal pigment-producing systems. When your skin is at risk of damage, like from the sun’s UV rays, melanocytes manufacture a chemical known as melanin.
The role of melanin is to protect your skin. Melanin is known for making your skin appear darker, although discoloration should gradually fade.
In some cases, melanin doesn’t fade and even starts building up in certain areas, causing dark patches. This is known as hyperpigmentation, also known as liver spots, age spots, or melasma.
Even though hyperpigmentation isn’t generally a medical concern, it can certainly be cosmetically unsightly and prompt you to cover up your skin.
Oftentimes, dark skin patches are hereditary — if someone in your family has hyperpigmentation, you probably will, too.
Women are more prone to hyperpigmentation due to hormonal fluctuations that occur with menstruation, pregnancy, or birth control medications.
While hyperpigmentation affects anyone at any point in life, you’re more likely to struggle with these dark skin patches if you’re of the following ethnicities:
Generally hyperpigmentation develops on areas that get the most sun exposure, such as your face. You can also have darker spots on your knees, hands, neck, or any other area that regularly gets UV ray exposure.
