When it comes to a skincare routine, men are often laidback. In the process of getting ready, unlike women, one of the things that men often miss taking care of is their face. From washing their face with any other face wash to applying moisturiser that was probably picked from their better half’s cosmetic shelf and finally doing that wonderful deed of stepping out in the Sun without applying sunscreen. For us, these make to the top of the ‘Big NO-NO!’ list.
Most men don’t realise that using the wrong skincare products does more harm than good. It will leave you with rough skin, one that is lifeless and issues like skin damage, tan, uneven skin tone & hyperpigmentation may begin at an early age. Hyperpigmentation is when there are darker skin patches than the surrounding areas of skin. The worst part is that it affects all skin types and worsens if people dont take any precautions, such as the daily sunscreen application. We get our complexion from the Melanin pigment present in our skin, and hyperpigmentation is caused due to excess Melanin deposition in certain areas of the skin. This leads to uneven patches, blemishes, uneven skin tone, and dark spots. Fortunately, you have us to save the day! So men, read through to understand what causes hyperpigmentation, the best natural Ayurvedic remedies and what premium Ayurvedic products you need to stock to take care of your skin.
Major Causes of Hyperpigmentation

1. Sunlight: Too much exposure to sunlight without sunscreen.

3. Skincare products: The presence of harmful chemicals like silicons in products can lead to dark spots over time.
4. Underlying medical conditions: Sometimes, underlying medical conditions can lead to uneven skin patches.
