Pigmentation and Uneven skin tone is an all too common skin condition. Harsh environmental conditions make us susceptible to pigmentation or freckling, and these little spots can often be the start of more serious skin conditions. The colour of your skin is determined by the level of melanin (or pigment) in the skin. Both women and men can have skin pigmentation problems relating to hormone changes and sun exposure. Pigmentation is really a chain reaction in response to damage being inflicted to our skin.Both can be either concentrated in one area or generalised.
Melanin is produced by melanocytes at the lower layer of the epidermis. Melanin is a class of pigment responsible for producing colour in the body in places such as the eyes, skin, and hair. As the body ages, melanocyte activity, and where concentrations of the cells are denser than surrounding areas, hyperpigmentation is affected.
