The coloring of the skin is called pigmentation. Melanin is a pigment found in the skin. Melanin is produced by skin cells to protect them from UV radiation damage.
The overall color of a person's skin is determined by the amount of melanin present in their skin. However, the skin can produce too much melanin in a place, causing a darkening of the skin. Hyperpigmentation is the term for this condition.
Hyperpigmentation generally affects only areas of the skin, although it can sometimes affect the whole body.
Home remedies may not be effective in any case, and there are cases where a person should consult a doctor for a complete diagnosis and medical therapy.
