The skin is a sensitive organ that reacts to the influence of all external factors. Many people try to get rid of dark spots to become more attractive. Pigmented spots are the accumulation of melanin on a specific area of the skin. This enzyme is responsible for the color of the skin and hair. Perhaps you know that any factor can produce melanin. Many young people believe that hyperpigmentation is a consequence of skin aging. Unfortunately, improper skincare can lead to increased production of melanin and pigmentation. Pigmented spots can appear at any age, with any skin color and sensitivity.
