Hyperpigmentation on the skin is a major concern for many. These areas of blotchy, uneven brown discoloration also known as brown spots, age spots, liver spots or masks often cause one much stress and self-consciousness. So, what causes it and how do you fix it?
Hyperpigmentation is more common in skin types with higher melanin content. If you have dark hair, dark eyes or dark skin then you naturally have more melanin content in the skin.
