When you’re doing your makeup or following your daily skincare routine, do you notice uneven patches of colour on your skin? Well don't worry, you're not the only one who has them! Those pesky little dark patches are what's known as pigmentation and they are a very common skincare concern.
Pigmentation is the overall usual colouring of a person's skin. But small patches may become darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation) over time for different reasons.
Irregular pigmentation can be congenital or can be caused by factors such as:
UV and sun exposure
Oestrogen from pregnancy, the Pill, or normal circulating hormones
Skin trauma from acne, laser therapy, IPL, chemical peels, and physical trauma
This is where your daily skin routine comes into play. Choose a brand like Alpha-H that specialises in addressing unwanted pigmentation. This approach can help you win the battle against discolouration.
