Skin discolouration due to pigmentation is one of the major issues faced by teenagers and adults alike. Skin pigmentation is of various types like melasma, freckles, spots and age spots that occur due to hormonal imbalances, overexposure to sun, age, and presence of excessive melanin - the pigment responsible for natural skin tone.

While hyperpigmentation happens due to excess melanin in the skin, sun spots occur because of overexposure to the sun. Freckles are also formed due to harmful sun rays and they appear as brown spots on the face.

If you are suffering from pigmentation, try these natural remedies regularly for a clear skin.
