Why Do Skin Blemishes Occur?

The color of our skin is substantially determined by melanin pigments produced by melanocyte cells.

The melanin that determines skin color can sometimes be concentrated in certain areas for a variety of reasons. As a result of this concentration the most common skin problem, blemishes, occurs.

Skin blemishes, which are more common in the most exposed areas of the sun's rays, can simply be classified as congenital and acquired (subsequent spots).

The most commonly seen skin blemish applied for treatment are melasma's, also known as sunspots.

Known as melasma, sunspots are changes in the amount of the skins' melanin pigments, caused by excess sun exposure and hormonal changes.

There are actually the same amount of color cells in every part of our body however during sunspot formation some cells work more than others and cause color changes in some parts of our skin.

Although it is thought that spots only occur because of direct contact with the sun, acquired spots can be tied to different reasons too.

Causes of Skin Blemishes;

  • The skins' genetic structure,
  • Time spent exposed to the sun,
