Black Skin Discoloration


Are you struggling with Black skin discoloration issues?

Are dark marks and blotches that take months to fade hurting your self confidence?

Let's look at the major causes of dark marks and discoloration.

How many of them are you dealing with?

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

  1. Insect Bites: Mosquito and other bug bites make some black skin react by getting dark. Scratching the skin makes it worse by irritating it. In some cases the skin can even become infected.

  2. Acne Scars: If you have acne issues, when pimples clear you may still have to deal with scars left behind. These scars can take months (if not years) to fade.

  3. Scrapes and Bruises: If your skin gets damaged, expect the area to get dark after the cut heals. These scars are usually deep and it takes a lot to make them budge.

  4. Pregnancy: Pregnancy and weight gain can make skin get darker. You can develop “la linea negra” (the black line that runs from belly button to groin) during pregnancy. Pregnancy hormones can cause Melasma which make dark patches of skin appear on the face.

  5. Friction: If your thighs rub together, that skin may get darker than the rest of your body. Knees, elbows, underarms and other areas that get rubbed often are typically dark.

  6. Sun Damage: Too much sun makes your skin get much darker, even if you wear sun block. The only way to not get burned is to stay out of the sun completely.

Once you've identified the cause of your Black skin discoloration you can start an effective treatment to get even toned skin.
