What is the skin pigmentation and how we can make it less visible?

Pigmentation or brown spots on the skin is a very common issue for a lot of people. This is a sign that your melanin is hyper- and unevenly produced, which might happen due to a very broad range of reasons such as: Sun damage (damage of the basal layer of epidermis where melanin is produced); Aging (due to hormonal fluctuations); Emotional stress, which also creates the hormonal fluctuations. Pregnancy (increased level of progesterone, estrogen, and malanocyte-stimulating hormone very often lead to developing the dark spots on the certain area of the face called chloasma); Vitamins deficiency (usually B12 deficiency); Inflammation...
