Acne vulgaris (commonly called acne) is a common skin condition, caused by
changes in the pilosebaceous units. It affects the areas of skin with the
densest population of sebaceous follicles; these areas include the face, the
upper part of the chest, and the back.
Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of an area of skin or nails caused by
increased melanin production. It can be caused by hormonal imbalances, sun
damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne
There are different types of hyperpigmented skin:
1. Melasma - result of hormonal changes. Estrogen and/or progesterone stimulate pigmentation hormones causing dark, irregular sized patches
2. Freckles - clusters of concentrated melanin less than 5mm in diameter. Increased melanin is seen in basal layer of epidermis without any increase in melanocytes
3. Senile lentigines - common after middle age on back of the hands. Compared to freckles, they have an increased number of melanocytes
KP is a condition that results in rough bumps on the skin, referred to as

UVA/UVB rays can cause harmful skin damage and can speed the aging process.
UVB is the main cause of sunburns, while UVA rays are associated with
photoaging effects because they penetrate more deeply into the skin. There are
many harmful effects from sun exposure such as premature skin aging and skin
damage due to harmful UVA/UVB rays. If out in the sun, it is important to stay
protected using the highest levels of UVA/UVB protection.
