Pigmentation simply means coloring. Melasma, freckles, moles etc are all part of pigmentation problems.
When skin cells become damaged or unhealthy, melanin production is affected, resulting in blotchy and uneven skin tone. The patches can be brown, deep brown, blue-grey, and even blue-black in colour.
Melasma is one such skin pigmentation condition commonly experienced by women, especially during pregnancy, hence the nickname “mask of pregnancy”. It presents as brown patches on sun-exposed areas of the face, such as cheeks, bridge of nose, forehead and upper lip.
Freckles are small flat brown spots arising on the face and other sun exposed areas, often seen in fair skinned people, but they can be inherited by those with darker skin as well. Usually, freckles appear around the age of five and tend to fade in adulthood.
People with fair skin often have more moles compared to people with darker skin. Most moles present at birth and are completely harmless, and they can change in number and appearance. However, they can be a nuisance and affect your confidence.
