Factors leading to pigmentation and some solutions

All of us love to have spotless skin, isn’t it? But this seems far from the reality due to various factors. While we may not be able to prevent every reason, we should try to know the factors leading to skin issues and some of its solutions.

  • Exposure to Sun:

When you are exposed to direct sunlight for a long time, you can see that your skin gets tanned. This is due to the defense mechanism of your skin that produces more melanin. When the sunspots become more visible it mars your face. A lot of blemishes occur and some of this, research links to being cancerous. It is therefore important to protect your skin from sun damage to avoid pigmentation.


  • Skin inflammation:

There are many reasons for the inflammation of the skin. It may be due to acne, pimples, insect bites, scratching of the skin, etc. These leave a spot on the affected area even after the wound is healed. This way inflammation is another reason affecting your skin.

  • Medication:

This can also be another cause of pigmentation. Some health conditions lead to increased production of melanin. Also, intake of certain drugs may lead to this situation. These drugs, even if taken with a consultation to treat a specific condition, may have these side effects.

Solutions for hyperpigmenation:

  • Keeping the skin moisturized:

A moisturized skin can help in restoring the skin’s fat and help in protecting it from the damage caused by sun rays. The product that is chosen for countering skin pigmentation should also be rich in other essential benefits. The product can also include factors for increasing cell turnover. All ingredients together make it a good product for protecting your skin from pigmentation.

  • Make an appointment with a dermatologist:

Most of the times people resort to OTC medicines in the first place. For simple problems, this should work fine but it is always better to consult your dermatologist for expert advice. At Regenerer you can get all the help required regarding your skin. There are many components in your skincare products that can be taken only under proper guidance. Otherwise what was taken for skincare could lead to its damage. There is also an allergy factor that should be considered. Not all products are suitable for everyone. Before using a product, inform about any allergies to your doctor. An allergy test will be done before using the product.

  • Keep hands off:

This may sound like a simple one but very difficult to practice. Whenever there is a breakout or acne or a blackhead, people try to scratch it out. The spots when scratched become even more worse. So care should be taken not to keep your hands on the pigmentation.
