Skin care is one of the most vital beauty routines in every beautiful woman’s life. Beauty marks or birthmarks could add beauty to some, while others could suffer from pigmentation. For many, heavy makeup might seem to be the key answer. However, this would lead to skin complications on the long term.

What is it?

What are its types?
Sun exposure is responsible for some types including Melasma and sunspots. They are more likely to affect areas of skin including the face, arms, and legs.

Having extra pigment in some areas of skin is usually harmless unless it indicates another medical complication or condition.
