There are a number of different factors that can trigger hyperpigmentation and these are as follows:
Sun damage is a very common trigger of hyperpigmentation, especially in hotter climates such as Africa’s.
Freckles, age spots and other darkened skin patches can become darker or more pronounced when skin is exposed to the sun. This happens because melanin absorbs the energy of the suns harmful ultraviolet rays in order to protect the skin from damage.
Skin Damage & Treatment
Melasma or Chloasma is hyperpigmentation triggered by hormonal changes/influences. Pregnancy, for example, can trigger overproduction of melanin that causes hyperpigmentation on the face. Melasma frequently reduces after pregnancy. Women who take birth control pills may also develop hyperpigmentation because their bodies undergo similar kinds of hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy.
Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is another form of hyperpigmentation that is caused by any sort of trauma to the skin (e.g. Acne). Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) causes skin darkening and discoloration that show up as spots, or as large patches on a person’s skin. This is because cells that normally produce brown pigment evenly across your skin produce too much melanin. This happens because of an inflammatory reaction in the skin, or injury to the skin. Although PIH can occur in all skin types, it is more common in people of African, Asian, Latin and indigenous Indian backgrounds and can affect men and women equally.
