~ Why It Occurs ~
- Post-Inflammatory: this type of hyperpigmentation can be caused by acne, breakouts, eczema, or psoriasis that end up creating dark spots. It tends to be more common with darker skin tones, but it can occur with almost any skin tone or type.
- Sun Damage: known also by solar lentigenes or "sun spots"; continual overexposure to the sun can cause this hyperpigmentation and it's also the most common type of discoloration in those with lighter skin tones.
- Melasma: a type that can be patch-like in pattern and is usually caused by sun exposure, commonly appearing on areas like the face. It's also known as the "mask of pregnancy" since it occurs in pregnant women more often [due to hormonal changes]- although it can appear in anyone. Estrogen supplements can also cause this type of hyperpigmentation.
- Drug-induced: hyperpigmentation that can be caused by certain drugs such as NSAIDS & sulfonamides. Each time the drug is taken, more hyperpigmentation results, and will occur on areas like the hands, feet, and face.
