What is Skin Pigmentation?

A pigment called melanin gives your skin, hair, and eyes their distinct color. If the cells responsible for producing melanin become damaged or abnormal, it impacts the melanin production, resulting in Skin Pigmentation disorders that can sometimes affect just a few patches of skin or your entire body. Too much melanin production can cause your skin to be darker, while too little can make it lighter, with at times no or missing skin colour.
