It occurs when melanin is overproduced in certain spots on the skin resulting in flat, darkened patches of skin that are light brown to black in colour, and can vary in size and shape.

Like we always advise our customers to use sunscreen. We recommend applying an SPF 30 or higher , even if you’re just going to be inside sitting near a window.
