“Hyperpigmentation is characterised by brown patches on the surface of the skin, usually brought on by hormonal changes, sun exposure or skin-irritating products. In order to cover up the affected areas, it’s important to moisturise the skin daily and to always apply a SPF as the sun can deepen the colouring of the patches."
