Brown spots on the body

The hyperpigmentation phenomenon causes the formation of brown spots on the body. Many parts of the body may be affected. They are generally areas exposed regularly to the sun, i.e. areas that are uncovered, so having brown spots on the body is a particularly visible and obvious skin disorder. Below is a brief overview of the parts of the body most affected, along with solutions to prevent and correct brown spots on the body.

“I have brown spots on my face”

Hyperpigmentation on the face is very common. It results from sun exposure, female sex hormones, aging, pollution and certain treatments.
Hyperpigmentation can affect several parts of the face: the forehead, cheeks, nostrils, upper lip, chin, in addition to the eye contour and neck. The complexion becomes uneven and blotchy with marks.
People with brown spots on the face would probably prefer to have brown spots on the body, because they would be less visible, less obvious to others. People can sometimes make hurtful remarks about brown spots on the face, they may believe they are caused by poor hygiene or skin care, which is absolutely not the case.

“I have brown spots on the hands”

Brown spots on the body very often appear in the form of brown spots on the hands. This is because our hands are regularly exposed to the sun without protection, they are therefore subjected to the phenomenon of photo-aging. Brown spots on the hands are the main type of age spot found on the body.

“I have brown spots on the lips”

Brown spots on the lips cover a small surface area and are probably the smallest brown spots on the body. But these pigmentation spots are particularly visible and can give the person concerned a complex. This is because such spots can resemble downy hair, or even a moustache (upper lip) or beard (lower lip and chin).

“I have brown spots around the eyes”

Hyperpigmented eye bags are dark marks affecting specifically the eye contour. These brown spots may appear alone or combined with other brown spots on the body.
Brown spots around the eyes make the person appear tired or depressed, hence the need to treat and/or lighten them to recover a brighter and rested expression.

“I have brown spots on my neck”

The neck is a fine and delicate area of skin, often neglected when applying daily care or sun protection. As a result, marks on the neck can become permanent. These brown spots on the body can pose a problem because they are particularly visible, unless you wear a scarf around your neck in all circumstances.

“I have brown spots on the décolleté”

The décolleté is like the neck, it’s a part of the body that we tend to forget. The skin on the décolleté is poorly hydrated and insufficiently protected from the sun, so it’s exposed to the effects of photo-aging. Hyperpigmentation on the décolleté causes not only brown spots but also wrinkles and loss of firmness.

“I have brown spots on the stomach”

Brown spots on the stomach are brown spots on the body that specifically affect pregnant women. The white line between the navel and the pubis becomes darker under the effect of female hormones, forming a “linea nigra” that may be found embarrassing. Unlike the other brown spots on the body, this “linea nigra” tends to disappear spontaneously and gradually after childbirth.
Breastfeeding mothers sometimes wonder if their brown spots will persist as a result of breastfeeding. This can sometimes be the case, again, because of hormones, but not always. On the other hand, some treatments against hyperpigmentation are not compatible with breastfeeding and can only be started once it is over.

“I have brown spots on the body, what should I do”

Use of a high SPF sunscreen is essential to prevent brown spots on the body, and must become an everyday habit.
To eliminate brown spots on the body, dermo-cosmetics exist that will correct the hyperpigmentation, even out the complexion and protect the skin. In addition, a dermatologist may prescribe depigmenting care and/or perform certain technical procedures at their office.
