Ever had a scrape or a rash and then been left with a stubborn mark on your skin that just doesn’t go away? If you have dark skin, you might be dealing with something called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH)1 – a mouthful, right? It’s a big term for a common issue, but don’t worry, we’ve got the solution for you!
Can Anybody Get It?
Absolutely! PIH can happen to anyone, but it’s more common in darker skin tones. 1 It’s so common in fact, that up to 65% of darker-skinned individuals may experience PIH because of their acne.,2 It might take a while to fade, but don’t lose hope!
What Does It Look Like?
PIH can show up as tan, brown, or dark brown spots on the skin’s surface or even a blue-gray color if the damage has been done deeper down in your skin.3 It might stick around for a while, but with the right care, you can see improvements.
What Causes It?
From bug bites to burns, razor bumps to rashes, many things can cause PIH.4 As we said before, in African skin, it’s often caused by acne.3 (You can read more about acne here)
