After years of sun exposure, damage due to inflammation and other environmental free radicals skin may begin to produce too much pigment which is deposited deep within the skin, resulting in dark spots. These dark spots are commonly referred to as hyper pigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is caused when melanin, which gives hair and skin its color, is overproduced causing spots that look darker than your natural skin tone. These dark spots render an uneven skin tone and make the skin around the face, neck and chest seem older than it actually is.
