What causes Pigmentation, Sun damage and Age spots?

Pigmentation, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and age spots can be caused by a number of factors, but mainly it is the damage caused by the sun.  Pigmentation and wrinkles caused by sun damage, can take up to 20 years to show on the surface of the skin.  The damage is done in the earlier days of one’s life, at a time when one didn’t realise the importance of sun protection. When we get a tan, or worse, when we burn our skin, it will cause hyperpigmentation that shows in adulthood.

Pigmentation on darker Skin tones

Those with olive, Indian skin, darker skin, African skin can be particularly vulnerable to hyperpigmentation. As mentioned in “Medical News Today,” Statistics have shown – according to the “Skin of Color Society”, over 65% of African American people experience symptoms of hyperpigmentation, due to skin damage or irritation. Indian or skin from southern and eastern Asia has similar statistics.
