Our skin is delicate and is prone to one condition or the other. Acne is rampant in teenagers, rashes are pretty uncomfortable and sometimes parts of our skin dry up and die making areas of our skin darker in contrast to the rest of our skin. These can happen to just about anyone of any colour or race. Age spots can develop from prolong exposure to the sun and its harmful UV rays. Making sure you wear sunscreen before going out under it is imperative to ensuring the health of your skin and prevention of dark spots forming on your skin.
This is known as hyperpigmentation. Not just these traumatic age spots can form but it can get worse. Melasma for instance looks like the same thing as age spots but the infected area is much larger in comparison but unlike age spots which are formed by any part of the skin receiving high exposure to the sun, Melasma is can occur through hormonal changes. Taking medicine that affect your hormonal levels also exposes you to the risk of Melasma which is why it can often be seen in pregnant woman as definitely in many teenagers going through their puberty stages.
The point is, these changes which occur in your skin can be caused by internal causes as well as external ones. Other difficult conditions of the skin such as acne can be left behind as the consequence of healed pimple. As such, exfoliating your skin is one course of action you can take whereas you scrub the affected parts of your body in an attempt to shed dead cells that might be there. In this way, new and more healthy cells can grow and replace them and potentially removing the darkened skin from your body.
