Effective Essential Oil To Remove Face Pigmentation
Face pigmentation refers to the areas of skin that are darker than the surrounding skin colour. It occurs when the skin produces excess melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. It can affect people of all skin types.
The most common causes of face pigmentation are:
- Sun exposure - The body produces more melanin to protect the skin from prolonged exposure to the sun. This can cause dark spots or patches on the skin called age spots or sun spots.
- Skin inflammation - Areas of skin can darken after people have had inflammation of the skin. This can include acne, eczema, lupus, or an injury to the skin. People with darker skin are more likely to develop post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
- Melasma - Darker patches of skin can form when people experience hormonal changes. This type of hyperpigmentation is common during pregnancy.
- Reactions to drug use - Certain medications, such as antimalarial drugs and tricyclic antidepressants, can cause hyperpigmentation. In these cases, patches of skin may turn grey.
- Chemicals in topical treatments can also sometimes cause hyperpigmentation.
