Skin hyperpigmentation occurs when the body produces too much melanin – which gives color to the hair, skin and eyes, causing the brown spots appearance.
UV rays are the main cause brown spots and freckles which may be temporary or permanent. They are common on skin areas that are frequently exposed to the sun (face and hands).
Injuries also cause hyperpigmentation and the spots remain even when the wound heals.
Melasma is skin discoloration during pregnancy that usually affects cheeks and nose but they disappear after birth.
Here is the best natural remedy for hyperpigmentation
The treatment below is based on the Ayurveda principles. Mix well a teaspoon of lemon juice with a teaspoon of turmeric powder. Apply the resulting paste on the affected area and leave it to act for 15 minutes then rinse thoroughly. If you have sensitive skin, you can add a teaspoon of milk.

Very important! As long as you do this treatment don’t expose your skin on the sun.
