What are dark spots?

Dark spots can be also called hyperpigmentation. If an excess amount of melanin is produced, every skin is quite prone to hyperpigmentation. There are several other causes of hyperpigmentation. First of all, there is the sun. Sunlight furthers the production of melanin to protect our skin. Melanin protects our skin from harmful UV rays. So, overexposure of our skin to the sun will lead to more production of melanin and might lead to the formation of dark spots or marks. Another environmental reason is pollution, which we are bound to face every day. To protect our skin from the harmful particles in the air, more melanin is produced, hence, increased chances of dark spots. Other reasons are using chemical products and hormonal problems. Scratching the acne can also lead to it.
