When the skin colour becomes darker when compared to the surrounding skin due to excessive production of melanin pigment by the cells it is termed as hyperpigmentation. The pigmentation begins in patches involving the sun-exposed areas such as face, arms, and feet. This condition is commonly observed during pregnancy due to hormonal imbalance, in women who take contraceptive pills and some other associated conditions like addison’s disease, cushing's disease, coeliac disease ,tinea, acanthosis nigricans, graves’ disease etc
Homoeopathy is effective in clearing facial pigmentation and restoring the normal skin color. It maintains the hormonal balance, controls increased production of melanin thereby maintaining healthy skin and prevents further discoloration of skin.
