More and more are having problems with pigment patches and what is the cause? Pigment patches may come as a result of the sun, but may also be associated with pregnancy or using birth control pills. The ozone layer is constantly thinner and it is therefore more important than ever before to remember to protect the skin with a good sunscreen. If you get the so-called hyperpigmentation, which is dark spots in the skin, it means that the pigment-forming cells produce too much melanin, which causes an area to become more red, brown or even black. Since the sun is the worst enemy, it is important to take sunscreen every day, and not only if you plan a trip to the beach. This is necessary because sunlight stimulates the formation of pigment and therefore deteriorates rapidly. There are always very good products on the market that seem bright and can solve the problem. Many people also choose to have laceration, and you should be very aware that the skin will subsequently be very light-sensitive and you should therefore avoid sunlight. In general, you should be aware that if the pigment patches disappear, you will subsequently be more disposed to get them again.
