Age Spots and Pigmentation

If your skin looks sallow and patchy, it can be due to pigmentation caused by sun damage, ageing and other factors. Pigmentation are basically caused by an excess of melanin, the substance that determines our natural skin color and which our skin produces when exposed to the sun to give us a tan. Melanin is produced by melanocytes, located in the bottom layer of the skin’s epidermis. TCM provides another point of view. When we reach middle age, due to the increase in the amount of stress, the functions of the liver and the kidney deteriorates and thus the appearance of different types of pigmentation.
