Hyperpigmentation is also known as melasma and skin discoloration. It is characterized by dark patches on the skin that occur due to increased formation and build-up of the melanin pigment. Dark patches on the skin become a matter of concern when they are on the uncovered areas of the body and face.
Discolored areas on the skin make a person feel miserable. Many efforts are made to find an effective skin treatment to fight skin discoloration. Cosmetic treatments, skin lightening cream for hyperpigmentation, and home remedies are popularly used by people to get rid of dark spots, freckles, and blemishes.
