Acne, dark spots and other skin problems are inevitable yet preventable. Our environment is exposed to bacterias and viruses and there are also many factors that contribute to these skin problems such as acne, breakouts, dark spots, age spots, and brown spots.
One is the rising in the production of melanocytes that increases the melanin content in the skin to make it look darker. These mostly occur in the area of the face, chest, neck, back, shoulders, and hands. We could also acquire dark spots when we are exposed on the sun.
Secondly, these spots could also be caused by genetics, nutritional deficiencies, stress, weak liver functioning, certain health issues, improper skin care hygiene, pregnancy, skin problems (like breakouts, blemishes or acne), and many more.
