Hyper Pigmentation is the colouring disorder of the skin. Our skin gets its colour from a pigment called Melanin, produced by special skin cells. When these cells start producing excess melanin, it leads to development of patches darker than the normal skin colour. This can be due to sun exposure or pregnancy or a genetic condition. This pigment disorder can sometimes affect a certain body part or even the whole body. The skin develops darker spots on the face or various body parts and is clearly visible. The hyper-activity of the melanin pigment causes it to get deposited unevenly in different parts. The more melanin we have, the darker our skin will be. Although it is a harmless condition usually, but its effects on a person’s appearance can be disturbing.

This skin pigmentation disorder can occur due to various reasons, given below.
