Hyper and Hypo-pigmentation what does that really mean?
Your Skin color (Melanin) is produced by melanocyte cells which exists at the bottom of the epidermis. When your melanocyte cells produce to much Melanin (color) in certain areas, your skin will get Hyper-pigmentation (Too much color). This is what causes all the Brown Spots, discolorations after you pick your skin, to much sun, etc. Now when your skin color (Melanin) does not produce enough melanocyte cells, or they get destroyed or damaged with accidents to your skin, burns, continued picking, etc, you will get Hypo-pigmentation (loss of all color).
