Hyperpigmentation is a common skin problem that causes certain areas or parts of the skin to become darker. Usually it is a harmless problem which is caused by excessive amounts of pigment, such as melanin in the skin. Hyperpigmentation affects both men and women, and is characterized by areas of darker skin. While it is most common on middle-aged and elderly people, hyperpigmentation can also occur on younger people.
Some people are genetically more prone to hyperpigmentation (overactive melanin in the skin). For some women birth control pills or pregnancy can cause pigmentation disorder. It is hard to tell why exactly skin becomes hyperpigmented as to tell why some people have problems with acne, dry or sensitive skin, and others do not.
