Uneven skin pigmentation is a common skin problem faced by many, even more so among Asian people with it affecting around 40% of women and 20% of men in Southeast Asia. Asian skin contains more melanin-producing cells and these cells are easily damaged or stimulated by sunlight which is the number one cause of pigmentation.
What are the causes of pigmentation?
Sun exposure triggers the production of melanin. Melanin acts as a natural sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays but overexposure of it will lead to skin pigmentation and premature skin ageing.
In addition, hormonal influences are also the main cause of melasma, which is a type of skin pigmentation. It is common among women that occurs during times of hormonal fluctuations associated with pregnancy, oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy. For some, the condition fades over time, but for many it can be difficult to remove.
