All of us would like to get clear, flawless, glowing skin. Disorders of the skin cause lot of embarrassment apart from the pain and discomfort caused by skin conditions. According to Ayurvedic texts, skin is a by-product of other tissues like blood, plasma and muscles. Hence any disruption in their conditions affects the skin causing various skin diseases.
Skin Discolouration is caused due to a variation in the levels of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour. Overproduction of melanin causes brown spots on the skin. Initially dark spots appear around the elbows, knuckles or knees and start spreading. It may also be seen on the palms of the hands or soles of the feet.



Excess production of melanin is the main cause for skin discolouration. This could be due to over exposure to the sun, certain medications, nutritional deficiency, chronic illness, skin disorders, pigmentation due to pregnancy.


Treatment options vary from individual to individual.

Before you start with any treatment it is best to talk to a specialist who can advise you on the right treatment option for you.
