Just like acne, pigmentation is a common skin problem that most people face at some or the other point in their life. Darkening of certain spots on the skin can be referred to as pigmentation.

While most pigmentation spots fade away on their own, the process is slow. Everyone wants clear, even and glowing skin, right? So, if you have pigmentation spots on your body, stop hiding them under long skirts and full-sleeved tops, and follow these tips instead.

Wear sunscreen

Before we tell you how to correct it, we will first tell you how to prevent it. Still limiting the application of sunscreen to your face? That’s the biggest mistake you’re making. Don’t neglect your hands, feet, lips, ears, neck and all other exposed parts of the body while applying sunscreen. Sun damage is one of the major causes of pigmentation and hence it’s necessary to apply sunscreen all year long. Wear a sunscreen with a minimum SPF value of 30.
