Hyperpigmentation is a common problem with dark skin. People with dark skin are blessed with skin that is able to protect itself well against sunlight. Yet hyperpigmentation is a common skin ailment and that has everything to do with predisposition and hormone balance. Fortunately, you can do something about it yourself. This way you can both prevent and treat it. A treatment takes some time, but the result is certainly there. Below you will find everything about the cause of hyperpigmentation and how you can best prevent and solve it.
Hyperpigmentation in the face
Find out cause
It is important to know exactly what causes skin discoloration before you proceed to treatment. Prevention is always better than cure. And in addition, it helps to remove the cause for preventive improvement of the skin.
Before we discuss the causes, it is useful to know that the skin produces pigment when it is exposed to sunlight. When this process is disrupted, melanin accumulates in the skin, causing pigmentation spots. These spots can become darker than your own skin color, but sometimes also lighter.
Top 4 causes of skin discolorations
- Sunlight (UV radiation): when the skin is exposed to a lot of sunlight, you can develop hyperpigmentation. This doesn't happen to everyone, but it is becoming more and more common.
- Predisposition: do pigment spots, hyperpigmentation or other skin problems where an accumulation of pigment is the cause common in the family? Then you may have a predisposition to developing skin discolorations such as hyperpigmentation. That doesn't mean you can't get rid of it though, because you certainly can.
- Hormonal changes: think of the contraceptive pill, pregnancy and menopause. Every woman has to be extra careful with hormonal changes. That's because in these phases you are extra sensitive to developing melasma and other pigment problems. So take extra care and protect your skin well when you expose it to sunlight. For example, wear a hat or use sunscreen.
- The use of irritating substances in cosmetics: irritating substances in cosmetics or creams can cause a disturbance in the skin. When the skin is then exposed to UV radiation, the skin no longer knows how to behave.

When you want to remove hyperpigmentation, it is important to keep the skin in balance. Disturbed skin behaves differently than skin that is in balance. For example, it is important to give your body and skin sufficient time to take the contraceptive pill or during your pregnancy, for example. You can do this by not exposing the skin to direct sunlight. Make sure that the skin is always protected with sunscreen or try to keep the skin out of the sun by wearing a hat or cap.
