The Science Of Dark Spots | Causes & Remedies

What Are Dark Spots?
Dark spots on the face are a form of hyperpigmentation that occurs when the skin produces an excess of Melanin. Melanin is a pigment that gives the skin its natural color and its imbalance leads to black spots on the face.

Dark spots on the skin can range from light brown to dark brown. The color of dark spots may depend on the tone of a person’s skin. The spots are the same texture as the skin but may vary in size.

Causes Of Dark Spots On Face

Dark spots or hyperpigmentation can develop due to multiple factors depending on your environment, age, or skin type. Sun exposure is also instrumental in the occurrence of dark spots.

As we grow older, our skin tends to become more prone to dullness, dark spots, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity. It is common to notice dark spots on face as you age, as melanin becomes clumped or is produced in high concentrations.

Hormonal Changes
Especially women, experience a lot of hormonal changes in their body, whether it is age-related, or because of factors such as pregnancy or even menopause. These changes may lead to pigmentation and dark spots on face. Melasma (brown patches on the skin) is another common condition caused due to hormonal changes

Sun Exposure
Staying out during the day, exposed to the harsh sunlight without sun protection can cause skin pigmentation which eventually leads to dark spots. The harmful UV rays damage the skin’s natural texture causing freckles, sunspots, tanning, age spots & more.

Acne Scars
Another factor that causes dark spots is acne-related scars. For acne-prone skin, scars can become quite intense and can leave dark spots on the face.
