The most important cause of pigmentation is sun exposure. When we are exposed to the harsh UV rays of the sun, the melanocytes in our skin get overexcited and start to overproduce melanin as a response. This can commonly cause many of the pigmentation problems many people face. Thus, using sunscreen of an appropriate SPF for your skin type is crucial in preventing this.
For some other forms of pigmentation (like Melasma), they are more commonly caused by hormonal changes in the body. This is usually triggered by being pregnant or taking oral contraceptives which may drastically affect hormonal balance in the body.
If you are dealing with stubborn pigmentation, home remedies may not suffice. Seeking medical treatment would be a more viable approach when it comes to treating stubborn pigmentation.
