Dark marks on the skin can be caused by a number of factors. The biggest culprit however, is the sun. Living in South Africa equates to an outdoor lifestyle, one where we enjoy the warmth of the sun and frolic in oceans and swimming pools in a pleasant climate. Unfortunately, irrespective of how you’re enjoying the sun, those dangerous UV rays are penetrating the skin, causing irreparable damage. Our body responds to UV damage by producing melanin to protect the skin and this results in the formation of dark marks and pigmentation, and is even more prominent in African skin. Similarly, scar tissue from injuries and acne pock-marks from squeezing pimples and ingrown hairs can also create dark marks and blemishes on the skin. However, even though it may seem like the odds are against you, you can have healthy skin too.
