GET THE LOWDOWN ON PIGMENTATION.
The cells which are responsible for the colour of your skin can overproduce or underproduce skin pigment. This can lead to visibly uneven skin colouring, which can be either darker or lighter than your normal complexion.
Causes vary depending on the type of pigmentation. However, all types of pigmentation can get worse from too much sun exposure. Hormones can also play a part, so some will see a change in their skin pigmentation during puberty, pregnancy, as a result of birth control, or even due to stress!
