What causes them?

The first reason we can note is the hyperpigmentation. This happens because of the external factors we get exposed to every day that are accelerating the formation of the dark spots.

-Melasma

This happens in the situation of overproduction of melanin from the pigment cells. The sports are usually located on our forehead, cheeks, chin and the upper lip as well. It is best to avoid exposing your face to the sun.

-Pregnancy/ Hormonal imbalance

The dark spots can result from the pregnancy as well, and after that they should disappear because the hormones will be balanced again. If you are under some hormone therapy, such as medication for hypothyroidsm or maybe cancer, that will be an indicator as well.

-Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)

These kinds of spots happen because of some conditions of the skin, like for example psoriasis, that are making pressure on our skin. Some of the skin products that contain alcohol, as well as burns or acne can increase PIH.

-Facial hair removal

Due to the methods of facial hair removal, like tweezers or some chemical creams, there can be ingrown hair around the hair follicle, which can lead to inflammation. Then the sports may appear on that place, even in the form of brown bumps.

-Pimples

No matter what caused the pimples to appear, after they are gone you can see small dark colored sports on that place.
