One of the main concerns of women when it comes to skin care is what is commonly called brown spots, also known as pigment spots and that is the subject of this article.

Brown spots are the result of an overproduction of melanin due to inflammation. There are several types of brown spots:
- Age spots
- Inflammation spots (pimples, acne, burns...)

- Hormonal disorder spots (pregnancy mask...)
Hyperpigmentation affects all skin tones, not just black, dark and mixed race skin. Pigmentation spots are more visible and last longer on black, dark and mixed race skin because they produce more melanin. Brown spots need to be treated as soon as they appear for better results.

The secret to preventing pigmentation spots is a simple but effective skin care routine. Starting with a gentle cleanser like Melyon's Milk Cleanser or Freya+Bailey's Awake Cleanser to remove impurities. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub once a week like the Kadalys Peeling to remove dead cells and treat brown spots and reduce the signs of aging.
