Causes of Hyperpigmentation |

Dr. Janelle Vega, Dermatologist with Baptist Health South Florida, explains hyperpigmentation is a condition where your skin can darken, and this can happen from the Sun, or it can happen from hormonal issues, among other different causes.

“There are a lot of creams that are based on botanicals, and that are a little less aggressive, because they don’t contain hydroquinone, for example, or even retinol that won’t lighten your skin dramatically; they more just stop your skin from hyperpigmentation,” she says.
